We frequently fall short when we try to imagine what God might do for us. Often, we imagine disaster. The Israelites were so doubtful of God’s love that they preferred slavery! But a miracle like Creation itself, when God first divided the waters, was about to take place with the parting of the Red Sea, to give birth to a free people.
This is the constant theme of the whole Bible: redemption! salvation! freedom! glory! Yet we tend to like limits; it seems safer that way. But now, let’s invite God’s love to divide our own fears, opening up a road to grace upon grace. Then we will receive blessings beyond imagination!
