Welcome back to our third week of Learning Together! I am glad you can
join us in our last online lesson this month about the story “God Makes a
Way.” This story is found on pages 92-99 of The Jesus Storybook Bible by
Children: This week I would like you to reread the story yourself, aloud
or silently, or maybe read the story to another family member or friend.
Was it hard for God’s people to trust God that He would save them from
the soldiers and the Red Sea? What do you think they must have been
thinking as they walked through the pillars of water to the other side? What
would YOU be thinking at such a moment?
Is it hard for us, God’s people nowadays, to trust in God? Why is it so
difficult at times to trust? What can we do to make our faith stronger?
Please share any of your thoughts and comments with all of us on our RLC
blog! Pastor Steve will enjoy hearing your opinions and how you feel about
Adults: The Biblical reference for this story is Exodus 14-15.
To complete our discussion of three adult modern-day truths learned
from the Red Sea miracle, our last is We Are Never Alone. (The first two
are God Can Be Trusted and Focus On God, Not The Problem.)
Just as God did not leave the Israelites alone in their fleeing from
Pharaoh and the Egyptian army, God will never leave us alone. The Lord
promises to be with us every step of the way.
Even when we think we are alone, we are not. Whether we are walking
down the street or we are sitting alone in a room, the Holy Spirit consumes
the space around us. This can bring great comfort to your soul and give you
We can overlook this particular truth while reading the account of the
Red Sea miracle because all we see is that God parts the Red Sea for Israel.
We do not equate God doing the same for us. However, as believers in Christ,
we are now all chosen, as were the Israelites, and dearly loved by God.
The parting of the Red Sea is a major turning point in the Bible during
Israel’s exodus from Egypt. Without God’s provision, the Israelites would
have been recaptured, re-enslaved, or even killed by Pharaoh and his army.
Thankfully, the Israelites were not alone because God was with them. In the
same way, God can help us “part” the Red Seas in our lives and give us relief
from our troubles.
Your comments/questions as adults are also important to our discussions.

~This week’s prayer: I thank my dear Lord for surrounding me with His
Holy Spirit. Amen
