Day Four Exodus 14:21-25

21 Then Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the Lord opened up a path through the water with a strong east wind. The wind blew all that night, turning the seabed into dry land. 22 So the people of Israel walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on each side!

23 Then the Egyptians—all of Pharaoh’s horses, chariots, and charioteers—chased them into the middle of the sea. 24 But just before dawn the Lord looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion. 25 He twisted their chariot wheels, making their chariots difficult to drive. “Let’s get out of here—away from these Israelites!” the Egyptians shouted. “The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt!”
– Exodus 14:21-25 (NLT)

1. Who split the sea (verse 21)?
2. What would your thoughts have been as an Israelite in verse 22?
3. What do the Egyptians acknowledge in verse 25?

The Red Sea and the Egyptian army are no match for the power of God. Even the non-believing Egyptians recognize His power and want to retreat in battle as a result. God protects the Israelites just as He said He would. Reflect on where you've seen the power of God move in your life. Is there a situation where you need His power today? The God of Exodus 14 is the same One we serve today. Spend some time praising this God who is so loving that He uses His mighty power to protect His people just as He said He would.

For Families with Kids at Home
We serve a powerful God! The same God who split the sea in half is the God we pray to and who looks out for us. Sometimes we don’t pray for BIG things because we forget how POWERFUL God is. Ask your kids, “After seeing how powerful and big God is in this story, what are some BIG things you’d like to pray to God for?”
