"Before And Behind"

"And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.  The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace".  Exodus 14:13,14
The children of Israel were hemmed in between Pharaoh's army and the Red Sea.  There was no place for them to go.  The army was behind them and the sea was before them.  Have you ever felt "hemmed in"?  Sickness is behind you and there is nothing the doctors can do before you. The loss of your job is behind you and bills are mounting up before you.  A broken relationship behind you and uncertainty before you.  The loss of a loved one behind you and pain and heartache before you.
We have all found ourselves "hemmed in" at times.  In those times we don't know what to do.  We can't go forward and we can't go backwards.  We are at a complete stand still with no means of escape, provision or help in sight.  When you find yourself in that place, what is your normal course of action?  Is it like the Israelites who murmured, complained and got angry?  Or is it like Moses who believed to see the salvation of the Lord?
Are you "hemmed in" in a situation today?  Stop whining.  Stop complaining.  Stop murmuring.  Stop getting angry.  Stop bemoaning it.  Stop grumbling.  Look to the Lord.  Fall on your face before Him.  Acknowledge His power and ability to make a way for you.  Look to Him instead of at your circumstances.  Repent for your lack of trust and faith.  Rest assured that He is going to take care of you and whatever lies before and behind you.  He did for Israel.  He took care of both Pharaoh behind and the sea before.
Have a great day.  Look to the Lord to take care of what is hemming you in before and behind.
