"The waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen; of all the host of Pharaoh that had followed them into the sea, not one of them remained. But the people of Israel walked on dry ground through the sea, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left." (Exodus 14:28, 29)
Except for the resurrection, there is no more memorable event found in scripture than the Red Sea crossing in Exodus. For the Christian it’s perhaps so because of the popularity from Cecil B Demille’s production of The Ten Commandments. For Jewish people it was their anchor. Moses wrote a song about it (Exodus 15) and the story and its testimony about the saving power of Yahweh is repeated numerous times throughout scripture.
We need an anchor as well. If you’ve every been down to the shore where boats are docked, they are anchored into respective slips. During a storm the boats are toss all about but their anchored position keeps them from crashing into the dock or from being toss out into troubled waters. We have an anchor and it is Jesus Christ. Tie your life to Him and He will keep you steady when the sea of life becomes turbulent. My anchor holds, what about you?
We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll,
Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love. — Priscilla Owens 1882
