The Lord knew that Moses was the right person for the assignment, even though at the time Moses himself did not think so.
When the Lord called Moses, it was obvious that he did not want to do go. This is some of Moses responses when God spoke to him.
Many of us are familiar with the account of Noah in the bible. God told him to prepare an ark before the world was destroyed with water.
Let’s look at the brief account in the book of Hebrews:
Hebrews 11; 7
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
Our God has not changed and He is still jealous over us. Why? This is because He loves us so much He wants us to Himself alone, (Exodus 34;14, 1 Corinthians 10;22). It’s actually a beautiful place to be, fully and totally committed to the Lord.

Exodus 4: 8 reads “And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign”. In other words, a sign has a voice. Its speaking something.
Many of us have heard of the account in the bible where Moses disobeyed the commandment of the Lord. He was told to strike the rock, but he smote the rock. But if you pay close attention, it was both Moses and Aaron that were instructed and both paid the price for disobedience.
Most of us are familiar with the account in the bible, when God brought out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt having been slaves for almost 400 years.
While there are many things we can learn from this account and many lessons, let’s have a look at what happened when the children of Israel got to the Red Sea.
