A greater crisis equals greater glory

When the children of Israel had been delivered from slavery in Egypt, God led them into a place next to the Red Sea that was surrounded by mountains. They were trapped with no place to go with the Egyptian army in hot pursuit. Without a miracle from their God, some of them would have been slaughtered, and the rest taken back into a harsher type of slavery. So, the question might be, why would God lead them into such a place?

I believe the answer is found in Exodus 14:4 where it states, “And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord.” The fact is that the greater the miracle, the more honor, praise and glory the God who performs it will receive.

The same is true with us who are believers. Our God might allow certain things or events to come into our lives that will require a miracle for us to get out of. The same truth applies to us, the greater the miracle, the more glory will be given to the God who makes it happen.

Many times, the end result is not what we would prefer, but this result will bring more honor to our heavenly Father. We need to put our complete trust in our God who loves us and then trust in His Word that reminds us “that all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose”.
