I love Exodus 14. I’ve preached from this text and this message all over this country. It’s helped me so much. I quote it to myself often.
I can remember when the Lord gave it to me, and then when I was walking to church on that Sunday night, I got just a few blocks from here, and he outlined it in my mind. I knew what I was going to say. I had my notes all ready to go.
But the children of Israel were trapped in Exodus 14. They were just trapped. They could not turn to the right, to the left, go ahead, go behind. The Egyptians were coming, and God said, “three, two, one.” Three words, “fear ye not.” God’s not giving you the spirit of fear. Fear ye not. Two words, “stand still.” Oh, that’s what we don’t like to do? Fear ye not. Stand still. Last word, one word, “see.” I’d like you to repeat it many times this day. Three two one fear ye not stand still see you watch when you’re trapped, but God will do.
