Pursuers Drowned

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea, so that the water may come back upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots and chariot drivers.” So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at dawn the sea returned to its normal depth. As the Egyptians fled before it, the Lord tossed the Egyptians into the sea. The waters returned and covered the chariots and the chariot drivers, the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed them into the sea; not one of them remained. But the Israelites walked on dry ground through the sea, the waters forming a wall for them on their right and on their left. Thus the Lord saved Israel that day from the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. Israel saw the great work that the Lord did against the Egyptians. So the people feared the Lord and believed in the Lord and in his servant Moses. (Exodus 14:26-31, NRSV)

And the way God continues to show He is with us and for us, is by after the Israelites crossed over the sea bed on dry land, the Egyptians whose chariot wheels had been stopped up were drowned in the sea crashing back down upon them.

God made a way for the Israelites to cross the sea, but would not let the Egyptians make it all the way across.

God is always for His people. Believe it. Trust it. Follow where He leads.
