Obedience

OBEDIENCE to spiritual law has always characterized those who have achieved great victories for God. Many illustrations drawn from the great storehouse of Scripture serve to illustrate this point. A notable example is found in the leadership of Moses at the Red Sea, as told in the fourteenth chapter of Exodus.

When night fell upon the armies of Israel encamped by the shore of the Red Sea, the raging waters before them and the chariots of Pharaoh thundering on behind, to human sense their plight was indeed a serious one. It is not strange that the people cried unto Moses and longed for the comparative safety of Egypt. But Moses looked to God for relief, and his obedience won the day. In that critical hour, obedience had to be instant and implicit, had to be born of faith and love. There could be no swerving, no questioning of Love's command. There could be no halting indecision. His own vision must be clear, and he must inspire his people. He must "speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward."
