Of course, the victory celebration doesn’t end with the Israelites merely leaving the land of Egypt.
That would be a great, Hollywood-worthy ending complete with a young, chiseled Moses staring confidently into the sunset.
But once again, the Israelites are faced with a desperate situation as the Egyptians chase them in the wilderness.
Ahead of them is the Red Sea and the tiny nation has no boats, ships, or even floaties among them. Behind them is the life they once knew—cruel oppression and open hatred.
If there were ever a moment to dig deep and try to muster some faith, this is it. Yet the Israelites respond the same way we do when faced with a crisis.
