Most hall of fame museums do not honor large groups of people. They may honor a sports team, but I don’t know of one that honors a group of a couple of million people. Yet a group this large is honored in Hebrews 11:29, “By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.”
This passage describes the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. They were pursued by the Egyptian army, which wanted to return them to slavery. The army trapped the Israelites against the shores of the Red Sea. But God delivered them!
I remember as a child seeing Charlton Heston star as Moses in The Ten Commandments. The film depicts this crossing. I encourage you to watch the movie. It’s a classic!
Or, go to a lake. Visualize wind blowing and piling up water on each side of a path across the lake bottom. Envision the walls of water being far taller than a house! Taller than the waves people surf! Would you have the faith to walk between those walls, held in place by some invisible force? That’s what the Israelites did. That was their act of faith. They trusted God to protect them. They passed through the sea, then watched God use it to annihilate the pursuing army.
Remember, trust in God, even if it seems there is no way through the difficulties you face!
