(15)Then Adonai said to Moses, “Why are you crying to me? Tell the sons of Israel to go forward. (16) Lift up your staff, stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it.”
Passover Nosh – Day 7
Despite the many miracles God performed to release the nation of Israel from Egyptian tyranny, Moses and the people of Israel found themselves trapped against the Red Sea and facing re-enslavement, death and certain destruction at the hands of Pharaoh’s pursuing army. Moses was desperate, out of human options and crying out to God for help. Sometimes in the lives of those who trust God, as Moses here experienced, the moment we are out of human options and totally dependent on God is the right time for God’s miracle option to be revealed on our behalf.
