God Will Make A Way
As God led the children of Israel out of Egypt and through the Red Sea all the way to the promised land, He was not just leading them but also protecting them. The pillar of cloud that led the children of Israel from Egypt went behind them to divide them from the Egyptians who were pursuing them. The pillar of cloud was not only a deterrence for the Egyptians, but it also helped the Israelites not focus on their problems. When the Israelites were to look behind them at their problem, they would see the pillar of cloud and be reminded that God is on their side and protecting them. God allows the hardships in our lives to prove how powerful and mighty He is. We may only see problems behind us and difficulties ahead, but through it all, God will lead us and gives us reminders throughout His Word that He is on our side, He will never leave us, He is our Rock and Shield, and He is our Defender. God will lead us through the waters of doubt, but we must go through these challenges to strengthen and build our faith and trust. The next time you face difficulties, lean upon the Lord, knowing that He will lead you and provide that way of escape, which is Him. He is our escape and wants to make a way out if we keep our eyes on Him and not on the storm.

Ezekiel 47-48 & 1John 1
And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night. And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.
