“The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back; the mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. Why was it, O sea, that you fled, O Jordan, that you turned back, you mountains, that you skipped like rams, you hills, like lambs? Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water(Psalm 114:3-8).”
“You know you need a miracle, and that’s basically what we got”, said Brandon Stokely. He had just caught a deflected pass from his quarterback and completed the longest game-winning play in league history. Long-time football players had never seen anything like it. (Here’s the video.)
If a reporter from the Desert Gazette had interviewed a participant in the the escape from Egypt by Israel, he probably would have gotten the same quote as the modern reporter got from Brandon Stokely.
The people were stuck up against a large body of water with the Egyptian army bearing down, and suddenly the sea opens up and they march through. God defeated the pursuing army by drowning them in the Red Sea and the Israelites continued their journey to their new land.
Later, God opened up another body of water, the Jordan River. The Israelite army went across and defeated their enemies, with God providing more miracles along the way.
Miracles aren’t something that happen every day, otherwise they wouldn’t be miracles. But sometimes we are up against it and God supernaturally intervenes to aid us. Perhaps you need one today. I know I do.
