Moses and the children of Israel on the banks of the Red Sea, mountains on both sides, the Rea Sea in the front, and the mighty Pharoah and his great army behind them. No where to hide, no where to run, they were sitting ducks. Yet, the Lord came through, He proved to all that He is ABLE. So

God will make things right, so stay with it to the end ...

Moses was sitting in the Egyptian ghetto. Things were terrible. Pharaoh wouldn’t even speak to him. The rest of the Israelites were mad at him and making the overseers even more irritable than usual, etc. He was about ready to give up.
