When God was leading the children of Israel out of slavery in Egypt, they came to the Red Sea. The Egyptians were pursuing them, and the Israelites seemingly had nowhere to go. They began to be afraid and even questioned why God had brought them out of Egypt. However, God tells them to go forward, and God splits the Red Sea in half, allowing them to cross over safely while destroying the entire Egyptian army. Throughout our life, we may seem like we have nowhere to go. God wants us to keep moving forward and to keep our focus on Him. The devil, during these times, will remind us of "defeats" in our life, but we should not focus on our past mistakes and failures. We can't fix our past, but we can go forward in life, determining to live for God, follow His guidance, and glorify Him with our life. Don't focus on the circumstance, but rather focus on the One who can give your victory over it. God will make a way even when it seems impossible. All He wants from you is faith and persistence to move forward.
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. And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:
Exodus 14:13-15 (KJV)
