At Marah, the Lord tested his people

by | Sep 28, 2020

At Marah, the Lord tested his people.
“Moses asked the Lord for help, and the Lord told him to throw a certain piece of wood into the water. Moses did so, and the water became fit to drink. At Marah, the Lord tested his people and also gave them some laws and teachings.” “Then he said, “I am the Lord your God, and I cure your diseases. If you obey me by doing right and by following my laws and teachings, I won’t punish you with the diseases I sent on the Egyptians.”‬‬ “Later, the Israelites came to Elim, where there were twelve springs and 70 palm trees. So they camped there.”
Exodus‬ 15:25- 27‬ CEV‬‬
God wants us to freely love Him and obey Him voluntarily from our hearts.
He led the children of Israel out of bondage into freedom.
There appeared to be a problem with water.
Rather than trust him and ask for his divine provisions, they complained.
When they first tasted the waters, it was bitter.
They complained again.
The solution was revealed to Moses by God.
Ahead of the spot where they complained about lack of water, 12 springs, and 70 palm trees awaited them.
What are you experiencing now?
Respond trusting and believing God for His Breakthrough and Solutions
Don’t complain.
The same God that told Moses what to do at each instance is now living in you.
Ask Him.
Love Him with all your heart and obey Him.
Be like David:
“Our Lord, I will remember the things you have done, your miracles of long ago.” “I will think about each one of your mighty deeds.” “Everything you do is right, and no other god compares with you.”
Psalms‬ 77:11-13‬ CEV
Follow the laws and teachings HE gave you without complaining.
Remember the various victories HE had given you.
Your current challenges will soon become testimonies that will Glorify God and be a Blessing to you.‬‬
You will pass this test.
