A Rock and a Hard Place

Exodus 14:1-14

The Apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Corinth that the things which has happened with Israel in the O.T. took place to be examples for us today. The passage that we have before us is just that. The nation of Israel were at a point that many of us have been, are now, or one day will be. They were "between a rock and a hard place".

That saying describes a host of situations doesnít it? Times when we find ourselves struggling with the circumstances about us. Sometimes frightened, and often frustrated knowing not what to do. Seemingly there was no way out!

I. Difficulties Are Not That Significant.

II. God is in Control.

III. There is a Personal Purpose in Difficulties.

IV. Our Reactions to Difficulties are Very Important.

What about you today? Are you between a rock and a hard place? Do you feel overwhelmed by your circumstances? Feel like God is not listening or doesnít care?

Learn from this passage. God knows exactly what you are going through. He has a plan and you are part of it! And so are the difficulties that He has allowed to come into your life. Trust Him today.

If you have never accepted Him as your Savior, trust Him for salvation. If you are a believer, trust Him for strength and deliverance through the trials.
