Perhaps you’ve considered some of this before. But will you ponder the magnitude of this again, along with its implications for your daily life, decisions, and attitude? I must. This is no fairy tale.
Moses and the people were in the desert, but what was he going to do with them? An expert in dealing with military supplies has calculated that Moses and the people would have consumed about 1500 tons of food each day. Did you know that to bring that much food each day, two freight trains, one mile long each, would be required?!
If they needed firewood to cook the food, this would take 4000 tons of wood and a few more mile-long freight trains, just for one day’s wood. And this—for forty years, each day.
And, oh yes! They would have to have water. If they only had enough to drink (and wash a few dishes?)—it would take 11,000,000 gallons each day. Just to supply enough water, an 1800 mile long freight train, with tank cars, would be needed EACH DAY!
They had to get across the Red Sea. If they were double file on a narrow path, the line would be 800 miles long and it would require 35 days and nights to cross. Thus, there must have been a 3 mile-wide space in the Red Sea so that they could walk 5000 abreast to get over in one night.
Each time they camped at the end of the day, a campground two-thirds the size of Rhode Island was required, or a total of 750 square miles—think of it! They needed this much property—just for a nightly camping.
Do you think that Moses had all the answers figured out before he left Egypt?
Some things MEN CAN’T PLAN, and MEN CAN’T DO. But, you see, Moses believed in God. YAHWEH. The CREATOR and ONE TRUE GOD.
And now, for you and me............... Do you suppose YOU may just have a God BIG ENOUGH for whatever YOUR problems may be? If you believe in the same God Moses did, and obey Him as Moses desired to, there is no difference in the Supply Father has for you, and that which He had for Moses and His People. ALL things are possible, for him who believes. “The Kingdom suffers violence.” The things GOD wants to do in your life and through your life are under siege by the enemy. DON’T GIVE IT TO HIM! KNOW that GOD is able, even in the darkest of circumstances and the most painful of trials. The Kingdom suffers violence, but YOU need not fall under satan’s spell of unbelief and carnal perspectives. Listen for His Voice—and then hold on to what God is Promising, without fear, without doubt, without hesitation or complaint. Persevere. THIS is the victory that overcomes the world—even our Faith! Will you BELIEVE and TRUST and BE TOTALLY LOYAL (all definitions of Faith) to the God of Moses, the God of Abraham, the God of Elijah, the Father and Life of Jesus Christ? Walking on water, raising the dead, feeding a million people with no known food—THESE ARE NOT PROBLEMS for OUR GOD??!! Do you believe this? Do you REALLY live as if you believe in THIS God, in total confidence, trust, intimate genuine two-way relationship... and unwavering loyalty? It is your privilege to do so, if you will...............
