Moses and the people were in the desert,
but what was he
going to do with them? They had to be fed, and feeding 2 or 3 million
people requires a lot of food. According to the Quartermaster General in
the Army, it is reported that Moses would have to have had 1500 tons of
food each day. Do you know that to bring that much food each day, two
freight trains, each at least a mile long, would be
Besides you must remember, they were out in
the desert, so they would
have to have firewood to use in cooking the food. This would take 4000 tons
wood and a few more freight trains, each a mile long, just for one day.
And just think, they were forty years in transit.
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,
and a freight train with tank cars, 1800 miles long, just to bring
And then another thing! They had to get
across the Red Sea at night. Now,
if they went on a narrow path, double file, the line would be 800 miles
long and would require 35 days and nights to get through. So there had to
be a space in the Red Sea, 3 miles wide so that they could walk 5000
abreast to get over in one night.
But then, there is another problem.......each
time they camped at the end
of the day, a campground two-thirds the size of the State of Rhode Island
was required, or a total of 750 square miles long.........think of it!
This much space for camping.
Do you think Moses figured all this out
before he left Egypt? I think! not!
You see, Moses believed in God. God took
care of these things for him.
Now do you think God has any problem taking
care of your problems?
I asked the Lord to bless you As I prayed
for you today, To guide you and
protect you As you go along your way.......... His love is always with
you, His promises are true, And when we give Him all our cares, You know
He will see us through.
So when the road you're traveling on seems
difficult at best, just
remember I'm praying and God will do the rest.
