The Impossibilities are His

Exodus 12:37

The Israelites journeyed from Rameses to Sukkoth. There were about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides women and children.

If you type in “skeptics and the Exodus” into Google, you’ll see a number of people who have written about how the Exodus of Israel out of Egypt was impossible. They speak of how it is unlikely 3 – 3.5 million people could enter into the desert with any hope of survival. The amount of provisions needed for such an endeavor make it humanly impossible. They would need:

1) 1,500 tons of food each day,

2) 4,000 tons of wood for cooking each day

3) 3.5 million gallons of water for drinking and washing every day

4) a camping area of 750 square miles

 

Impossible right? Not for God. When the Israelites entered into the desert, they were right where God wanted them to be: in a place of utter dependence upon Him.

 

Today, you are invited to be right where God wants you to be: in a place of utter dependence upon Him. Let Him handle the impossibilities of this day.

 

Lord, I yield to you today. You alone are my strength, my provision, my shield. I choose to step forward only as You lead and trust that You will provide for this day from Your heavenly storehouses. I trust and love You Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
