Could we have done it?
Imagine: In front of us, lies the Red Sea, and when we look behind, the Egyptian army is ready to kill everyone. But we have God’s chosen people, the Israelites, in between both options – like, talk about pressure!
I love the conversation between Moses and God in Exodus 14:13-16. Moses was, on the one hand, telling the Israelites to be calm – God’s got this, and on the other hand, Moses is told by God to stop crying to Him and just move!
Naturally, I can giggle now, but I have pictured the Red Sea parting, before me, many times.
Talk about walking by faith and not by sight!
We need to realise that God always gives a simple solution…
To Moses it was to raise his hand and stretch it out, to divide the sea and Moses has seconds to decide the fate of the Israelites, but it came down to one simple fact:
Moses looked beyond the world’s perception and stood firm on the very Word of God. He saw God’s eternal blessings, and the Kingdom of Heaven moved powerfully that day.
By faith, the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land, but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned” Hebrews 11:29
What sea are you stood before?
What is God asking you to do?
Does it seem simple…almost too easy?
Remember – faith is simple, but the hardest thing is taking that first step to believing God, over our circumstance.
