SCARED COMPLAINBecause there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the desert? Let us alone for it is better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert.FAITHCALMNESSBe of good courage. Stand still and see the Lords salvation which He will accomplish for you today.Moses stretched out hands, the Red Sea partedIsraelites crossed over on dry ground!

Moses stretched out hands again, water closed on Egyptians

The Israelites praised & thanked God!Be of good courage. Stand still and see the Lords salvation which He will accomplish for you today.(Exodus 14:13)

So what can we learn

How did the Israelites feel being chased? What can FEAR do to us? Bad things We lose faith in God (forget God)We complain (unthankful)We become selfish (think only of ourselves)We become stubborn (stay in sin)
