Moses, a Man of God's Power

Parting of The Red Sea - Moses Trusts


This is one of the most widely recognized miracles in biblical history. A feat that is hard to fathom, the cause of many heated debates. Yet, it stands. 


If we believe that God is all-powerful, then why could He not do this? Why would He not do this? Imagine this scenario: God’s people, the Israelites have been enslaved for centuries. God sends an anointed man to speak to Pharoah and ask him to let them go. Pharoah hardens his heart, so God sends many plagues to get Pharoah to listen. After his son is taken in one of the plagues Pharoah finally relents. Then, as the Israelites are fleeing and nearing their freedom, Pharoah changes his mind and chases after them! What is Moses to do? What is God to do? One thing is certain: God will not miss an opportunity to show up and show out for His people!


“As Pharoah drew near, the sons of Israel looked and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they became very frightened.” (Exodus 14:10)


Moses Trusts


There was literally nowhere for them go. Their backs were against a wall — a sea wall. But the Lord tells us repeatedly in His Word that He will rescue us. And here is one of the most astounding examples of His people being rescued. He tells Moses to lift up his staff and stretch his hand over the sea and divide it! What? Moses just does what he is asked and boom, God shows up. He provides a way out, a rescue. His people go forth on dry land with walls of sea on each side of them and are delivered forever from the Egyptians. This was an incredible manifestation of the anointing.


“And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and Jehovah caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all the night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.  And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.” (Exodus 14:21-22)


Reflection 


What is your Red Sea moment? Do you have one? Perhaps more than one? If not, you can! Let’s put our faith into action and know that when we need it, God will provide a way out for us also. Miracles are not just for biblical times; they are for now! God loves to show out for His people
