Thought about Moses and the Parting of the Waters

Exodus 14: 15-16 The LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to Me? Tell the Israelites to go forward. And as for you, lift up your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.

You know, Moses didn't need faith to part the water. He needed faith to lift up his staff. The LORD parted the waters:

(verses 21-22) Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove back the sea with a strong east wind that turned it into dry land. So the waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on their right and on their left.
Sometimes, it takes all night.  But in the morning's light, we find that the LORD provides.
