I can't even remember how many times I have bought this book and have been led to give it to others. It helped me through some very difficult times in life. The main theme of this book is Biblicaly teaching how to think right. It encourages you to acknowlege the beautiful hand of God, behind the things you are going through.
Robert J. Morgan in his new book The Red Sea Rules published by Thomas Nelson Publishers gives us 10 God-Given Strategies for Difficult Times.
From the back cover: God delivered the Israelites and He will deliver you too.
Just as Moses and the Israelites found themselves caught between the devil and the deep Red Sea, so are we sometimes overwhelmed by lifes problems. The Red Sea Rules reveals that even in the midst of seemingly impossible situations God promises to make a way for us. His loving guidance will protect us through danger, illness, marital strife, financial problems, or whatever challenges Satan places in our path.
Using the Israelites story in Exodus 14 as an example, Robert Morgan offers ten sound strategies for moving from fear to faith. Life is hard, especially for Christians. It is certain that we will face difficulties, and that God will allow them, as He allowed the Israelites to become trapped between Pharaohs rushing armies and the uncrossable Red Sea. But just as certain is the fact that the same God who led us in will lead us out. As The Red Sea Rules makes comfortingly clear, He is in control.
What a situation in front of the Israelites is The Red Sea, to the right and left are impassable mountains and the only way out, which is the way they came in, is soon going to be filled with angry Egyptians who want to kill them all. And the best part of everything is that God Himself brought them to this spot on purpose. What do you do when you are in an impossible situation that looks absolutely hopeless? Pastor Morgan wrote down the ten steps found in Exodus 14 as our template. Pastor Morgan provides a nice breakdown of the events that occurred, what they did and what we should do. Then at the end of each chapter he provides Study Questions to help what we learned become part of us. Why do we need this book? We all have our Red Sea experiences that clog us with stress, worry and cares that draw our attention, The Red Sea Rules re-focuses our attention on our God and away from those things so that we can be renewed and refreshed. It always helps to be reminded that The Same God Who Led You in Will Lead You Out. This is one book you will be returning to over and over again.

i have purchased this book several times and have given away my copy time and again. asva Stephen Minister i find this book to be very helpful to remind folks that they are where God wants them to be, even if it hurts. it also reminds us that God knew this trial was coming and will see us through it, just as He parted The Red Sea to allow His people to cross on dry land. the rules themselves are well phrased and i post them in my home to remind me of past trials that God has used to help me to grow. not a difficult read but very insightful.
