The parting of the Red Sea is one of the most known events that we read about in the Bible. God moved in a mighty way as He led His people through the parted waters while chased by the Egyptians. After the Israelites made their way safely through the parted sea, the water came crashing down upon the Egyptians. The Bible says that “Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore” (v. 30 NIV).
“When the people of Israel saw the mighty power that the LORD had unleashed against the Egyptians, they were filled with awe before Him.” This is the awe that we should always have for God. He moves in mighty ways in our lives each day. Sometimes we are unable to see what He is doing because our eyes are fixed elsewhere. Sometimes we forget all He has done in the past.
Today, consider if you have lost the awe. Do you have that deep respect for God? Do you have that fall on your knees, face to the ground type awe? Do you have that speechless awe? Are you filled with awe? If you aren’t feeling that this morning, take time to realign yourself to God. Spend more time in the Word and prayer. As you refocus your eyes, may your heart follow.
“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.” – Exodus 14:31 [NLT]
