This Bible Lesson inspires and comforts with the gift of God’s grace. Through thoughtful treatment of several familiar Bible stories, it leads us through example after example of God’s all-powerful, ever-presence in our lives.
“And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: (Exodus 13: 27, 18)
And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:” (Exodus 13:21)
“And the children of Israel took their journey out of the wilderness of Sinai;” (Numbers 10:12)
“As the children of Israel were guided triumphantly through the Red Sea, the dark ebbing and flowing tides of human fear, — as they were led through the wilderness, walking wearily through the great desert of human hopes, and anticipating the promised joy, — so shall the spiritual idea guide all right desires in their passage from sense to Soul, from a material sense of existence to the spiritual, up to the glory prepared for them who love God.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 566: 1-9.)
