Scripture: Exodus 14:29,30
Exodus 14:29,30 says, “But the children of Israel had walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left. So the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore.” How is it that God made the children of Israel walk on dry land and when the Egyptians attempted to follow them, their chariot wheels got stuck in mud that had previously carried the Israelites over on dry ground? How is it that even then the sea returned to cover the Egyptians? It is very clear in verse 30, “…saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore.” Did someone pray a prayer that brought God into their midst with such strength? The truth of the matter is, Moses did. Does this God still exist today? After all, that is Old Testament. But did He manifest in the New Testament like this? He certainly did for Peter, when he was jailed by Herod. Hebrews 13:8 is really true – Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! The real question is this: do we know this Jesus? Can we pray prayers that bring this Jesus on the scene? If we understand the love of God that terminates and if the Spirit leads, then we can! Pray for termination – just like David did!
