God has called the Nation of Israel to be a people of remembrance, to reflect on the great miracles shown them throughout history.
The Jews during the holiday of Passover reflect on their deliverance as a nation out of Egyptian bondage. They walked thru water, walls of water, thru the Red Sea on dry ground, as God provided them a route of safety and Salvation.
Later in History came another who could have walked thru the water, but instead chose to walk on the water, His words “BE STILL”, would calm the raging sea beneath HIS feet.
The water listened, because the ONE who spoke created the water and everything else in the Universe.
