No impasses in divine Life

If your progress seems at a dead end, you can look with confidence to divine Mind for answers.

Have you ever felt as though you've reached an impasse? Anyone confronted by unemployment in a time of recession, a chronic illness, a mountain of unpaid bills, or a difficult relationship may feel there's no way out.

At such times one can appreciate Moses' predicament centuries ago as he and the children of Israel fled from Pharaoh's army and arrived at the Red Sea. The situation looked hopeless. Their path was blocked. With the waters in front of them and the army behind them, all seemed lost.

Yet a remarkable thing occurred. Moses said to the Israelites, "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). Then, following God's instructions, Moses lifted up his rod, stretched out his hand over the sea, and it divided. The children of Israel went forward, walking on dry ground. The waters then closed over the Pharaoh's army as they pursued the Israelites. It's important to emphasize that the spiritual signification of the Scriptures points not to the harming of people but to God's deliverance from the pursuit of any enslaving or destructive beliefs.
