“When the people of Israel saw the mighty power that the LORD had unleashed against the Egyptians, they were filled with awe before him. They put their faith in the LORD and in his servant Moses.”
The Israelites were finally free. They’d left Egypt and Pharaoh behind, and they were making their way to a new land. But soon they arrived at what looked like an insurmountable obstacle: The Red Sea.
To make matters worse, they realized the Egyptian army was chasing them (which, by the way, was the mightiest army on earth at the time). As a result, they took their eyes off God and put them on their enemies.
They went to Moses and said, “Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt?” (Exodus 14:11 NLT).
