I was listening to Omegaman Radio’s latest broadcast today and was hit with the Red Sea moment while faith was discussed. I was vividly aware of the darkness moving between the Israelites and Pharaoh. Then the words started coming, like ripples out from that center stanza. I had to record it immediately, before I even left the room and before the podcast was finished!
Shore up your faith, my brethren. Turn your eyes to the Lord!
A Psalm of Faith in the Darkness
Oh fickle nation
Do you not see the bud and know the flower cometh?
Does spring not follow behind winter?
Is the word of the Lord not eternal?
The heathen have more faith!
They bend their knee at statues of stone
Hour after hour, day by day
Yet the Lord’s people won’t even enter His house
The enemy plots for centuries
Slowly moving all his pieces into place
The people’s eyes are shut!
They cry, “Lord, checkmate! Save us!”
Shall we not have faith that surpasses the heathen?
Can we not see the steps of our Lord?
He lights our path
If we would but look
You raise your hands Me
The one who split the Red Sea
But you forget that I sent the darkness
Between My people and pharaoh.
Yes, I the Lord sent the darkness
And led by fire!
My people could not touch the enemy
And the enemy could not touch Mine anointed
Though they feared
I saved them for My sake
And I was glorified
Do not fear the darkness from My hand
For it blinds the enemy
And do not fear the enemy’s darkness
For I have already CONQUERED IT
Return your eyes and ears to Me, My people
Cut off the words of Baal
And fill with the perfect Word
Only then will you find peace
