FACING YOUR RED SEA IN FAITH

It was by faith that the people of Israel went right through the Red Sea as though they were on dry ground. But when the Egyptians tried to follow, they were all drowned. (Hebrews 11:29) With each step out of the land of Egypt,… Continue Reading “FACING YOUR RED SEA IN FAITH”
