The Exodus from Egypt
October 17, 2014 • Exodus 14 & 15
Have you ever felt stuck, like God brought you to this place in life then abandoned you? That's where we find Moses and the Israelites in our study this week of Exodus 14 & 15. The children of Israel were between the proverbial "rock and a hard place." In front of them stretched an impassable sea; behind them marched an implacable foe. They had just been freed from slavery in Egypt by the supernatural intervention of God. But now Pharaoh and his army are hot on their heels, and they have come up smack against the shore of the Red Sea. It looks like they are stuck, finished, toast. Except for one thing: their God, the God of Israel. Reflecting on the climax of their encounter at the Red Sea gives us a chance to contemplate the incredible power of the God we serve.
