1 My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth with a parable;
I will utter hidden things, things from of old—
3 things we have heard and known,

in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan.

he made the water stand up like a wall.
14 He guided them with the cloud by day and with light from the fire all night. 15 He split the rocks in the wilderness and gave them water as abundant as the seas;

One wrong move can cause a lifetime of pain, it's batter however, to begin late, than take off on wrong footing. Divine Direction is locating a predestined path (Luke 4:18). Something is written about you, which may be hidden from all mortal beings.
