To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.
Beloved: I can feel the fear and the attack of the enemy in me as I prepare for a difficult meeting today. Lord, may Your name be honored and glorified and Your purposes accomplished.
Lover: My perspective and goals are so much larger than yours, but as you open up to Me and allow Me to work in and through you, you get to share in the process and thus in the outcome. My involvement in the world’s affairs brings Me glory. As you work toward fulfilling My goals, you also bring Me glory. Do not fear. Keep your eyes on Me. Together we are unbeatable.
21Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. All that night the LORD pushed back the sea with a strong east wind and turned the sea into dry ground. The water divided, 22and the Israelites went through the middle of the sea on dry ground. The water stood like a wall on their right and on their left. 29Meanwhile, the Israelites had gone through the sea on dry ground while the water stood like a wall on their right and on their left. 30That day the LORD saved Israel from the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians lying dead on the seashore. 31When the Israelites saw the great power the LORD had used against the Egyptians, they feared the LORD and believed in him and in his servant Moses.
(Exodus 14: 21-22, 29-31, God’s Word)
