Sometimes God tells you to do crazy sounding things…like turn around and go back to where you’ve just come from so the hard-headed, tyrannical king to whom you used to be cruelly enslaved can attack you.
At least that’s what He tells the Hebrews to do in Exodus 14.
And when they obey this madness, He blesses them in magnificent fashion by saving them in miraculous fashion and following through on His previous promises in dramatic fashion.
And sometimes He does that with us, too. He asks us to so something seemingly nuts, and then He blesses us crazy amounts when we obey. (Ex., trust Jesus is who He says He is and will do what He says He will.)
Sometimes I wonder if He doesn’t make a game out of it just to amuse Himself. I definitely would if I were God. Which means He probably doesn’t.
ANYWAY. Hear more in my Exodus 14 video.
