I wonder what it was like that day
As the children of Israel stood on the banks
Of the Red Sea, a seemingly impossible
Obstacle before their very eyes.
The army of Pharaoh overtaking them.
Did the fear from within arise?
In their distress, they cried out to the Lord
The Lord began to speak in a mighty way
“Do not be afraid, stand still and see
The salvation of the Lord above”
For what He will do today for you
Will demonstrate His greatness and love.
“The Lord will fight for you
You only need to be still”
Oh the Word of the Lord spoke clearly
They watched Moses stretch out his hand
Then as the waters begin to part ways
And as the sea became dry land.
The waters now became a wall
To the right hand and the left
They walked across on dry land
Gathering on the other side
They watched their enemy follow
But then it was evident, the Lord was on their side.
Where the waters had been divided
For them to cross the Red Sea
The Lord now caused the waters to return
The way He had appointed and designed
That transpired when there was obedience
And they themselves with the Lord aligned.
We all have a Red Sea on our journey
The obstacle staring us in the face
The enemy threatening us from behind
To find comfort, we want to run and hide
But would you turn your eyes upward
And in your Father wholly confide?
So in your fear and trembling
Cry out to your Father in Heaven
He will hear you in your distress
He will fight for you, but being still you must
He will give you peace beyond understanding
But in Him you must place ALL your Trust.
“Then the waters returned and covered the chariots, the horsemen, and all the army of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them. Not so much as one of them remained. 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. Thus Israel saw the great work which the LORD had done in Egypt; so the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD and His servant Moses.” Exodus 14:28-31
