Waters in Abundance

Waters in Abundance

Scripture: EXODUS 17:1-7

“Exodus 17:6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.”

 Reflection:

The scripture for today shows us that God’s presence was felt by the Israelites both visually and physically, in addition to verbally making promises to them. The Israelites were constantly reminded of God’s loving provision through the manna that came six days a week in addition to his physical presence. There were hints of divine activity everywhere. Therefore, it is important to understand that Christ is the unmovable Rock and that Israel’s desert wandering was a test of their faith. Additionally, God was teaching them to rely solely on Him for all their needs. It was a slow, uncomfortable process of learning.

I’d like to share a quote from “Winn Collier” Israel encountered its own terrifying predicament. We read this disturbing statement: “There was no water for the people to drink” (Exodus 17:1) as the people camped in the dusty, desolate desert. The populace was terrified. They had dry throats. Sand began to sizzle. Their young one’s experienced thirst. The people, who were terrified, “quarreled with Moses,” asking for water (v. 2). Moses was powerless, though. Only God was his only option.

But God gave Moses a peculiar command: “Take…the staff (and)…strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink” (vv. 5–6). When Moses struck the rock, a river gushed out, enough for the people and their livestock. Israel understood that day that their God loved them. Their God gave them plenty of water.

LESSONS:

God is aware of your situation and is by your side if you’re going through a dry spell or a wilderness in life. I pray that whatever you lack or need, you will find comfort and hope in His plentiful waters.

Prayer:

O LORD, WE NEED YOUR ABUNDANT WATER AND PROVISION. WE ARE VERY SURE WE CANNOT MAKE IT WITHOUT YOUR HELP. WE ASK THAT YOU BRING TO US THE ABUNDANT WATER WE NEED. AND WE RECEIVE IT NOW IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.
