Walk Through the Desert, Walk to the Sea

When we consider to what degree God cares about us, does things for us, performs miracles, and is present in our lives, we need to remember the back-and-forth nature of His interaction in the Scriptures. Israel could not have seen God's parting of the Red Sea unless they had obeyed and walked that far. They had to act, they had to obey what had already been given to them, for God to do His part.
