Psalms 78:53 NKJV And He led them on safely, so that they did not fear; But the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
When the Israelites were departing Egypt making their way towards the Promised Land they encountered an obstacle they could not avoid. The Red Sea. They were being pursued by the Egyptian army bent on destroying them and found themselves at a seeming dead end. And how did they get there? They were led by God.
Exodus 13:21 tells us that is was the Lord who led them out of Egypt as a great pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. God led them to this place by the Red Sea where they were now surrounded by a vast sea and a ferocious enemy. But God’s heart was not to destroy His people. He wanted to permanently deliver them from an enemy that had vowed their destruction.
The 52nd verse in the 78th Psalm says, “But He made His own people go forth like sheep, And guided them in the wilderness like a flock;” God had indeed led them there, but He also led them out of Egypt without any harm. Through the sea piled up like walls on both sides He led them across the basin of the Red Sea on dry land. They followed Him in hope, in confidence, in faith. There was no reason to fear. God had shown Himself once more that he was able and willing to protect them.
God is able and willing to protect you. No matter what kind of situation you may feel like you are trapped in the middle of He will see you thru. He will lead you on safely so you don’t have to fear. Trust Him. He will lead you through safely even if He has to perform a miracle to do it. Fear Not.
