It was by faith that Moses commanded the people of Israel to keep the Passover and to sprinkle blood on the doorposts so that the angel of death would not kill their firstborn sons. It was by faith that the people of Israel went right through the Red Sea as though they were on dry ground. But when the Egyptians tried to follow, they were all drowned.Hebrews 11:28-29
Wherever You Lead
These verses show us two different kinds of faith. First, we see the faith of Moses. This had to have been a very difficult plague to see. Moses probably knew some of the families in Egypt who would lose their children, including Pharaoh. Yet, he remained faithful knowing that God would deliver the Israelites. He never wavered in that faith even if there were times when he was not sure what would happen next.
Then, we see the faith of the people. They walked right through the middle of the Red Sea and not with hesitancy, but with strength and power from God. This verse says that they walked as if they were walking on dry ground. They followed Moses and the Lord out of Egypt and into the unknown; God shut the sea on their enemies. When we follow Him and trust Him to do His work, we will see Him do great things.
A Prayer to Remember
Give me a faith like Moses and the people of Israel as they followed you out of Egypt. I will follow wherever you lead. Amen.
