…that led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name?
Isaiah 63:12, KJV
Imagine for a while that you are a media reporter. Moses is standing next to the Red Sea along with the people of Israel. In front of Moses is the roaring sea. Behind him is the army of Pharaoh, the greatest might in the world of those days.
God sent Moses to this world power (Egypt). He said,
“Go and deliver my people from the bondage of Pharaoh.”
Egypt had everything to fight against Moses and the people of Israel. Moses had just a rod but God was with Moses and God is the greatest power of the universe.
Moses’ rod was turned into a serpent. The sorcerers of Pharaoh did the same but the serpent of Moses swallowed up the serpents of the sorcerers. Here God of the universe, the only true God, showed his supremacy to Moses, and to Pharaoh and his magicians.
As Moses brought the Israelites out of Egypt he was challenged with a great test. He had to cross the Red Sea along with that great multitude of people and their livestock. The people were angry; they murmured and grumbled. They complained,
“Moses why have you brought us here to die, were there not enough graves for us in Egypt to be buried?”
Moses knew that God was with him and would deliver His people from this situation. He was confident that God would not leave him alone nor forsake him. God said to Moses, “Stretch your right hand toward the sea. By faith he stretched his right hand toward the sea, and the water stood still on both sides. The people of Israel passed through the sea as if it was a dry land.
The Israelites saw Moses stretch out his right hand to the sea but in truth the invisible, glorious arm of God was above the hand of Moses. Physically people could see the hand of Moses but they could not see the mighty and glorious arm of God. It was invisible. The parting of the sea was a miracle that took place by the glorious power of God. His glorious power was put into action on behalf of His people. Moses was just an instrument in the holy and mighty hand of God
You, as a media reporter, might ask, “Why did God use Moses? There must be many other men but why did God choose Moses? Here is what we learn:
(1) It was God’s choice. It pleases God to choose, and we can’t force God to choose us. It is His sovereign will whom He chooses.
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you
John 15:16, KJV
Even today God is looking to choose people for the expansion of His kingdom. We can offer ourselves and God will do the rest for us.
(2) He was a meek person on the face of the earth. There was no such meek person like Moses.
Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth
Numbers 12:3, KJV
(3) He was called by God through the burning bush.
(4) He was obedient to follow his God.
(5) He was a man of faith.
(6) He could see that which others could not see.
(7) He was friend of God.
(8) God spoke directly to him.
(9) Moses was working in partnership with God.
(10) God is the source of all real power and wonders.
(11) God is looking for obedient, willing, selfless and sacrificial individuals.

(15) He was not looking for reward from people.

When Moses took the people of Israel out of Egypt, he did not know how he would cross the Red Sea. But God, in his due time when they came close to the Red Sea, miracously made a way through the water.
If we truly follow Him, in due time He will prepare the way and the means for us to overcome a specific situation. Let us follow God, through Jesus Christ, and experience His power in our life, family, business, and church.
