1. As the people of Israel reacted to the approaching Egyptian army with fear and remorse, Moses reminded them of God’s power and protection. He said, “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still” (Exodus 14:14). Apply these words to God’s Old Testament people to yourself. What does it mean to be still in the sight of God?

2. After the miracle of the Exodus, the people praised God. They sang, “The LORD is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation” (Exodus 15:2). You can praise God with these same words. What miracle has God used to bring salvation to you (1 Peter 1:18-19)?

3. When Moses held his hand in the air, God’s power brought success to the armies of Joshua in their battle against the Amalekites. When Moses grew tired and lowered his arms, the enemy began to win. Then Aaron and Hur put a stone under Moses and, one on each side, held Moses’ arms in the air until complete victory was realized by the people of God (Exodus 17:8-13). Whose arms are you helping to hold up?
