"The Israelites marched into the midst of the sea on dry land, with the water like a wall to their right and to their left." —Exodus 14:22

Moses and the Israelites walked between two walls of water at the Red Sea. Joshua, Elijah, and Elisha stopped the Jordan River and walked in front of a wall of water (Jos 3:16; 2 Kgs 2:8, 14). But we in the new covenant can do even greater things. Like Jesus, we can walk not only through water but on water (Mt 14:26, 29). In fact, we can walk not just on water but on all the trials and troubles of life — even those from the evil one. Furthermore, in Jesus, we not only "tread water" or "keep our head above water," but even walk all over the evil one. We can stomp on Satan himself and quickly crush him under our feet (Rm 16:20).

Finally, after a life of walking with Jesus, on water, and on Satan, we take one more walk. On our last walk, we walk on air. "The Lord Himself will come down from heaven at the word of command, at the sound of the archangel's voice and God's trumpet; and those who have died in Christ will rise first. Then we, the living, the survivors, will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air" (1 Thes 4:16-17). After walking with Jesus on earth, we take an eternal walk with Him into heaven.

Prayer: Jesus, may I walk with You and talk with You all the way.
Promise: "There are My mother and My brothers. Whoever does the will of My heavenly Father is brother and sister and mother to Me." —Mt 12:50
Praise: Sandy frequently stops to visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament when out on her evening fitness walk.
