Psalm 77:19 “Your way was through the sea, your path, through the mighty waters...”
We tell the story so often that sometimes I forget to stop and think how astonishing it is
that God led a people to liberation right through the mighty waters. When we
remember what God has done, we know what God can do.
“You are the God who works wonders....” Today, friends, may you remember—
remember what God has done for you and for us, and know that God is leading us still.
1I cry aloud to God, aloud to God, that he may hear me.

14You are the God who works wonders; you have displayed your might among the
15With your strong arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and
16When the waters saw you, O God, when the waters saw you, they were afraid; the
very deep trembled.
17The clouds poured out water; the skies thundered; your arrows flashed on every side.
18The crash of your thunder was in the whirlwind; your lightnings lit up the world; the
earth trembled and shook.
19Your way was through the sea, your path, through the mighty waters; yet your
footprints were unseen.
20You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
