We all love a story where the hero saves the day, the victimized are rescued, justice is restored and there is freedom for all. Exodus 14 is that story! Freedom comes at a price. For the people of Israel to live in the freedom they so desperately want they need to overcome their fears and learn to walk in faith.
Exodus 14 teaches us that we often need to go through “deep waters” to develop the spiritual strength to follow God in faith through life’s challenges and experience his presence, leading and freedom.
