Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Water From The Rock”
Text: Exodus 17:6
“Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.”
And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.”
“Water from the Rock,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Israel is doing what God told them to do and they are in trouble; there was no water for the people to drink.
This shows you and I that we can be completely in the Will of God and in the middle of trouble; “with no water to drink.”
The right response is To “Ask where to find water,” not to Doubt and Question if God is with us.
We Ask because we Believe God is with us - We Doubt because we don’t Believe that God is with us.
The People Doubted but Moses Asked God where to find water.
This is our first lesson from this event.
The Rock at Horeb points us to Jesus Christ as “that spiritual Rock:”
“and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.” (1Corin.10:4).
Who do we look to First when we have a need? Our Rock and Our Source Who Is Always With You and I.
Moses was instructed to take some of the elders with him, and with his rod to strike the Rock; and water would flow out to refresh the people and the animals.
This pictures Jesus being “smitten by God for our sin” (Isa.53:4); and also as a fountain of Living Water springing up into everlasting life (John 4:10-14).
Our Commander Jesus Christ is Our Source and Supply for all our needs. We only need to Ask Him.
Finally, in our journey with God, whether we face a ‘Red Sea,’ ‘bitter waters,’ no food in the desert, or no water; all we need to do is Ask God - and He Will part the Red Sea, sweeten the bitter waters, rain down manna from Heaven, and even bring water out of a Rock, to meet our need.
Remember, our Trouble is actually our Test in God’s Classroom.
God allows Trouble to Test and Prove, and Build our Faith and Trust in Him As Our Source!
The right answer is to Ask God what to do, and then Obey His instruction, and you will pass the test. He Brings Water out of the Rock for you today. Ooooh Rah!
