The King of Egypt and his soldiers, with their chariots and horses were getting closer to the people of Israel! The King wanted to capture them and bring them all back to Egypt again, as his slaves. The people were terrified, even though Moses had told them to stay calm, because the LORD was with them to SAVE them from the evil King.
The LORD said to Moses, "Hold out your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the water on dry ground."
Well children, if we were wanting to cross over deep water we would need a boat or a bridge. But here GOD was talking about letting two million people WALK through the SEA on dry ground. IT WAS A MIRACLE!
YOU KNOW CHILDREN, GOD CAN DO ANYTHING AT ALL!
Moses stretched out his hand over the sea and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the people of Israel went through the sea on dry ground. The water was like a wall on their right and on their left.
How strange it must have felt to be WALKING through the middle of the sea, with the water piled up like a wall on either side of you. CAN YOU IMAGINE IT?
Isn't the LORD a Great and Mighty friend that we can depend on for everything? YES, OF COURSE HE IS! He SAVES His people from their enemies and He can SAVE you and me too. I want this STRONG God to look after me - do you?
"The LORD Almighty is with us..." Psalm 46:11
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank You that You are a STRONG and MIGHTY God. I TRUST You to SAVE and to look after me.Amen."
