Psalms 105:41 (ESV) 41 He opened the rock, and water gushed out; it flowed through the desert like a river.
As I was fasting tonight and praying to God, this verse hit me about the exodus of Israel out of Egypt. The power of God was so mighty striking Egypt that, the strongest nation in the world at that time, Egypt with its Pharaoh, the mightiest king of earth, was glad when Israel, the slaves of Egypt left them!
Psalms 105:37-38 (ESV) 37 Then he brought out Israel with silver and gold, and there was none among his tribes who stumbled. 38 Egypt was glad when they departed, for dread of them had fallen upon it.
Egypt was GLAD when Israel departed from Egypt for dread of them had fallen upon it!
They were on the way out , they went through wilderness, desert, they ran out of food, water, v41 described one of the most amazing verse, miracle happened! God opened the rock, and water gushed out. This is a miracle! Water gushing out of a rock, right in the middle of a desert. This is not an oasis. This is God showing the impossible happened by his miracle, so that Israel will truly know this is humanly impossible, and the only way is God! Have you ever felt you needed a miracle from God? Many of us have, and some do. I do. That’s our God! He is the God of impossibility! When men despair, when Israel and Moses went into despair mode, crying out to God, God stepped in and provided the most miraculous way. He could have commanded water to flow from the sand, but no, from the rock!
Not only that, v41b says it flowed through the desert like a river.
Not only did water gushed out from a rock, and you thought you would be lucky to get a couple of buckets, but no! Again, another convincing and convicting miracle of the immensity of God, the God our providence, caused the water to flow through the desert like a river. Can you see the contrast between a rover and a desert? The two most unlikely things become partners in the grace of the miracle of God!
I am so convicted, and whatever I asked from God, seeking him for his strength,
Psalms 105:3-5 (ESV) 3 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice! 4 Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually! 5 Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles
Those who seek the Lord rejoice!
Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his presence continually!!
