Exodus 14:19-31

Roadblocks

  • come from the outside.
  • come from society.
  • come from within us.

The Hebrews had a vision of freedom.

  • A fresh start
  • A new homeland

Freedom has its roadblocks.

  • The Red Sea before them
  • The horses and chariots behind them
  • The fear within them
  • Taking risks can be scary

God promises to be with us and miracles happen

  • once we figure out where God is leading us.
  • once we make the decision to go forward.

The Red Sea experience would not be the Hebrew's only roadblock.

  • We share the same roadblocks - fear, doubt, and low self esteem.

God wants His children to succeed.

  • He's good at removing roadblocks, or leading us through them.

You can get the person out of Egypt, but sometimes you have to get Egypt out of the person.
