2012-12-03 - What Would Moses Say?
And when the Israelites saw the mighty hand of the Lord displayed against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord, and put their trust in him and in Moses his servant. (Exodus 14:31 NIV)
The Egyptians were gaining on us, when God told me to hold up my staff and stretch my arm toward the Red Sea. The water would part, so we could travel safely on dry ground. Sounded peculiar to me, but I did not question the Lord of all - and I obeyed. It happened just as the Lord said.
The sea's water covered the Egyptians, their chariots, and cavalry. The men tried to run away, but failed to escape and drowned. None survived. Normally the Red Sea is so high a person can't stand up in it, but God made the sea low enough for us to walk through. There was a wall of water on each side, allowing us to walk on dry land, where a moment ago it was under water. Something this amazing was beyond words, beyond the people's scope of belief.
With this outward sign of God's power, the Israelite people began believing in God - and me as His servant. The experience showed the magnitude of God, and the lengths He would go to bring us to safety. God used me to achieve this mighty miracle. The Lord never ceases to amaze me.
Lord, May I be obedient and useful, so I can be a part of Your miracles. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Is there anything you doubt God can do?
