Focus…Focus…

Picture this:

You’re standing in front of a great body of water. Let’s call it a sea.

You hear something behind you.

As you turn around, you see something far off in the distance…

can’t quite make it out, but the sound is growing louder…

and louder…

until you can see chariots…

over 600 chariots.

And angry men inside. They’re yelling. Yelling at you.

And their horses are running. Fast. Faster than you can run.

But then, even if you could outrun the horses, where would you run? There’s a sea in front of you and over 600 chariots behind you.

Face it: You. are. dead. meat.

“When Pharaoh drew near, the people of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them,
and they feared greatly.
And the people of Israel cried out to the Lord.

They said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness?
What have you done to us in bringing us out of Egypt?”
(Exodus 14:10-11)

I don’t know what you think…but I think that’s a pretty big disguise.

You know what the blessing was? They saw God do a miracle.

“The Lord drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night and
made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left…
the sea returned to its normal course when the morning appeared.
And as the Egyptians fled into it,
the Lord threw the Egyptians into the midst of the sea.
The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen;
of all the host of Pharaoh that had followed them into the sea,
not one of them remained.”
((Exodus 14)

How about that for a blessing in disguise? That’s pretty big, right? Bigger than sickness, a clogged drain, and a dirty car.

But at the heart, it’s really the same lesson:

Keep your eyes on Jesus, no matter the situation.

So, let me ask you — Where is your focus right now?
