But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”Exodus 14:13‭-‬14 NLThttps://bible.com/bible/116/exo.14.13-14.NLT
Hey beloved child of God, I hope you’re fine by God’s grace.
Believe me or not, I recently found out that everyone on earth has issues. Ok, you’ll probably find this crazy but everytime I was going through a difficult situation, I thought that I was the only one going through a difficult situation. As such, I believed that the life of 90% of the world was perfect, with no issue at all and that I was amongst the 10% of people on earth who were going through something which they would have preferred not to go through.
It took time for me to learn that we’re all going through something. People won’t forcefully show all of their lives on social media, they will show the good and not the dents. As such, when you just look at their social media posts you can start imagining that everything is fine for them and that your life is a mess.
That’s why comparison is so bad, because when you compare, you have just 10% of the parameters about the other person’s life in mind, the other 90% only God truly knows them, and you’re probably hurting yourself by comparing your 90% which you know perfectly well to the 10% of someone else which you see with your unaided eyes.
Just to make today’s point clear; because we’re all going through something, we all need encouragement from God.
That’s what makes me introduce the title of today’s song, “You’re Not Alone” by Jamie Grace.

I don’t know the exact situation which you’re going through right now. I don’t have all the details of your season, but what I know is that God is with you in the middle, He’s going to see you through.
There’re people out there right now

  • Who are desperately trying to obey God but who keep falling and are about to give up
  • Who believed their marriage would be a bed of roses but who instead aren’t experiencing any peace nor joy in their marriage
  • Who have been married for years and trying to have children for years but to no avail
  • Who have to deal with chronic diseases in their own lives or the lives of their loved ones
  • Who are battling with depression and who have lost all hope of recovery
  • Who are having panic attacks every single day and who still don’t know how they’ll get out of it
  • Who still don’t know how they’ll pay their bills this month in order to keep their homes
  • Who are going through divorce though they tried everything to make their marriage work
  • Who are mourning for a loved one
  • Who are in hospitals awaiting surgery

Everyone is going through something, and what God wants you to know today is that your struggle doesn’t have to separate you from Him.
Romans 8:35‭-‬39 NIV

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

He’s not given up on you, He’s going to see you through, you are not alone. He is with you, He loves you and He stands for you.
The difference between people who are suffering from depression and people who are not doesn’t lie in the difficult things they went through, but in the fact that depressed people have lost all hope that things are going to get better.
It’s important that you know that you’re not in this all alone, knowing that God is with you is going to give you hope.
This hope is going to help you to have faith, and to carry on through the situation as you’re waiting on God to make things better for you.
God loves you so much, and He is for you.
I love the story in The Bible on how God divided the Red Sea in two so that the Israelites might cross.
They were in a dead end. Just behind them their enemies were running towards them, and just infront of them there was the Red Sea (no road). Their situation looked desperate, and as they cried out to Moses, Moses calmed them down and cried out to God.
God made a miracle and parted the Red Sea into two so that His people would cross safely, and He closed the Red Sea on the Egyptians.
Exodus 14:13‭-‬16‭, ‬19‭, ‬21‭-‬30 NIV

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left. The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea. During the last watch of the night the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. He jammed the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, “Let’s get away from the Israelites! The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt.” Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.” Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians were fleeing toward it, and the Lord swept them into the sea. The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen—the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the sea. Not one of them survived. But the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left. That day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians lying dead on the shore.

God is going to do the same thing for you. Where it looks impossible and unfeasible, He is going to open a way where there normally would seem to be no way, He wants you to calm down and believe. He is with you.
God wants you to stand still and await for His salvation. As you can read above, it took the whole night for God to divide the Red Sea into two. What does this imply for you?
Perhaps you’re in “the night” right now, and God is moving your Red Sea to adapt it for you to cross safely. Just be patient, the night won’t last forever, your “morning” will come. God was with Israel all through the night and He will also be with you all through the night.
God isn’t your God only when everything is alright. Even when everything is difficult, desperate and messy, He remains your God. Have faith and call upon His Name.
