Ever feel like God has you on the toughest route toward a goal, or like He's leading you backward instead of forward? When the Israelites left Egypt, God took them south instead of northeast. When the Egyptians raced to recapture their Jewish slaves, God told them to stand firm and watch His salvation. How frighteningly miraculous it must have been to walk safely between towering walls of water and then later witness those walls of water crashing down upon the pursuing Egyptians. Explore God's unusual leading of the Israelites, so you can gain insight for today as you follow God's unusual leading in your own life and experience His remarkable results.

A New Beginning—Worth Waiting For
Message 1 • Pastor Chuck Swindoll
Do you make it a habit to remember what it was like when you first became a Christian? In this message, Chuck Swindoll embarks with the Israelites from Egypt who were ready to enjoy their newfound freedom to worship God their Redeemer. God does not confine His redeeming work to ancient days but continues it into our present. Today, God frees us from something more dangerous than an angry Egyptian pharaoh—He frees us from our self-destructive habits to live anew and to be called by a new name. Chuck explores the significance of Israel's first Passover and invites you to experience afresh the joy you had when you first believed.

God describes His salvation as resembling an eagle that bears its chicks on her wings, and it's that level of care God promises His people in every venture. Chuck Swindoll encourages you to trust God completely—the first step for anyone who's about to begin something new.
