This is the type of problem God faces in His attempt to communicate divine truths to sinful, limited humanity. It is our limitations that restrict what He can communicate to us.

Today’s passage reveals that our God is a warrior God. After making it through the Red Sea unharmed, Moses and the Israelites celebrate God’s great victory over Egypt with a song of praise (Ex. ).
