Hebrews 11:29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
I can only imagine the faith it took to march through that opening in the Red Sea. I remember watching the movie "The Ten Commandments" for the first time many years ago and the reality of the walls of water on both sides of them really became real to me as I watched. It was most certainly an act of faith for them to move through the sea as the waters parted.
Many skeptics try to explain away the miracle of the parting of the Red Sea. They don't spend quiet as much time on the pillar of fire or the pillar of cloud that went before the children of Israel. Some have said that the place where they crossed was actually very shallow, only several inches of water. If that is true then there was still a great miracle when God drowned the entire Egyptian army in only a few inches of water.
We should be less busy trying to disprove the miracles of the Bible and busier trusting God for the miracles that He can perform in our lives today if we will only live by faith.
