God Makes a Way

Background

Last week we saw how God spoke to Moses through a burning bush (that didn’t burn up) and then how God used Moses and the 10 plagues to rescue the Israelites from slavery to the Egyptians. This week we will continue to journey with the Israelites as they travel in the desert and see how again, they escape from the Egyptians.

Read together Exodus 14-15

Read the story ”God Makes a Way” from the The Jesus Storybook Bible or read from your Bible – Exodus 14-15.

Think about

  1. What did God provide for the Israelites to follow during the day and night?
  2. Where did God lead the Israelites too?
  3. Who changed their mind and wanted the Israelites to come back to Egypt?
  4. Moses and the Israelites were being chased by the Egyptians and in front of them was the Red Sea.  How did God Rescue the Israelites from the Egyptians so they could safely escape?
  5. How do you think it felt for the Israelites to walk across on the bottom of the sea with walls of water on either side of them
  6. When the Israelites were safe on the other side of the red Sea, what did they do?
  7. The Israelites thanked God for rescuing them.  What is something that you can thank God for?

Key verse

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

Exodus 14:14-14

Wrap up

Once again, we can see how God rescued the Israelites from the Egyptians. Do you remember how God rescued you from your sins?

Pray together

Dear God, Thank you for parting the sea and rescuing your people and thank you for sending Jesus to rescue us. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
