“And I will stand there in front of you on the rock in Horeb; should strike down the mountain stone and it will come out of the water, so that people can drink.” This is what Moses in front of elders of Israel. “(Exodus 17 : 6) ( KJV 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. )
read: Exodus 17:17; Corinthians 10:4.
GOD can do anything to help us. A proverb says “the Lord just as far as prayer.” Right! Through prayer, we can communicate with GOD, wherever and whenever. But the way Israel is different from usual. They should be complaining or crying out to Moses that they get water. Water is not a real expensive item. The problem is they are already exhausted in the desert while there was no water supply, that’s what makes them ‘dark eyes’. They threatened to Moses so that they get water.
Let’s read Paul’s statement in the New Testament, “and they all drank the same spiritual drink: for they drank from the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ” (1 Corinthians 10:4). And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. ( KJV 1 Corinthians 10:4 )
The Apostle Paul says that rock is Christ. Spiritual lessons that we get is CHRIST is the answer to our problems. HE is the answer to our needs. When the Israelites lack of water, rock to give an answer to their problems.
Brother whatever your needs, The Rock is the answer. . You can specify what your needs, health, finances, or your household needs, GOD could provide the answer. What is considered impossible for humans, there is nothing impossible for GOD. The scholars and elders of Israel desperate to face recession of water in the desert. The formula they are not the way to solve this problem. Reason they can not answer their demands. But GOD is still only provide answers that never even crossed their minds. Removing the water from the crevices of the mountain. Incredible our GOD. And methods of GOD help us. to this sometimes can not be explained rationally. But that’s our GOD who worked his way ….. AMEN.
