Bible Story Reference: Exodus 15:1-21
Psalm 100:2 (NIV)
“Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs.”
Have you ever felt things were impossible? Our story today is about a time when the Israelites were in an impossible situation. God had an unexpected solution. Afterwards, they sang the song of Moses and Miriam—thanking and praising God for His goodness.
The Israelites were scared. They were trapped. Pharaoh and his army were behind them. In front of them was the Red Sea. They felt certain that they would either drown or be taken back to Egypt as slaves.
As they camped by the Red Sea, God’s angel and the pillar of cloud that had been showing them the way moved behind them. Throughout the night one side of the cloud kept Pharaoh’s army in darkness. On the other side, the cloud looked like fire and gave light and warmth to the Israelites. Pharaoh’s army could not get near them.
