The Red Sea Before You and Pharaoh Behind You!
“But Moses said to the people, ‘Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. ‘The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent.’”
In the 1970’s I was visiting my grandfather Mabrey and just happened to ask him for the name of the last motion picture he and my grandmother went to see. Papaw hesitated a minute and then asked me, “What was that movie that had that Charlton Heston fellow in it?” I responded with a chuckle, “Papaw, that was The Ten Commandments!” (Which by the way, was released in 1956)!
I guess most folks, at least through my generation can’t help but think of the movie classic starring Charlton Heston as Moses. But the great truth is there was a real Moses, and there is a real God who kept Pharaoh’s army at bay in-order-to allow Moses and God’s people to cross through the Red Sea on dry ground and to arrive safely on the other side.
What are we as Christians to do when facing a seemingly impossible situation? Read today’s Scripture again and invite the Holy Spirit to apply God’s Word to your heart, mind, and life. (Read how God delivered His people through the sea in Exodus 14).
In the Name of our Deliverer, God the Father and God the Son!
