My Thought Unspoken: July 2012

Monday, July 2, 2012


     The cloud led the people on and on. It was very hot. Then the cloud stopped and it was time to rest.The people of Israel were tired and thirsty. They wanted to drink and cook food and have a bath. But there was no water in this place. Even though God had been very good to the people. They did not trust Him to help. They did not pray to him. "I wish we were in Egypt," someone said. "Moses is not a good leader."
"Give us water. Give us water," the people shouted. Moses felt sad,but he knew what to do. God was the leader. So Moses prayed to God. God told him what to do.
"Moses tahe your rod. Call the leaders of the people. Then go to a big rock on Mount Sinai. I will be with you there.Take your rod and hit the rock. I will send water from the rock."
Moses did what God said. Water came pouring out of the rock. Down the side of the mountain it came and into the place where the Israelites had their tents. There was water for everyone.
The people were happy again. But would they ever learn to trust God? Would they learn to pray to Him when trouble came?

God Told His people to pick up only enough manna for one day. Some of the people did not obey God.They said, "We don't want to get up so early. The manna is all gone when the sun is hot. We will pick up manna for two days. Then we can have a long sleep in the morning."

So they picked up enough manna for two days. But the next morning there was a very bad smell in their tents.The extra manna had spoiled and they had to throw it away.

God told the people another thing about the manna. He said that on the day before the seventh day,they should pick up enough manna. Then they would not have to pick up manna on the Sabbath,the rest day. Again there were people who did not obey God. They said,"Remember how the food spoiled when we picked up twice as much? We will not pick up extra manna on the day before the Sabbath." 
And they did not ! They laugh at the people who were obeying God.

But when Sabbath came there was no manna on the ground.They looked and looked, but there was none! The extra manna did not spoil for the people who obeyed God.It wassweet and delicious. So the families of the people who did not obey,were hungry that Sabbath day.

When God created the earth, He made it in six days. Then He rested on seventh day, the Sabbath. He made the day special. When He made the first people, Adam and Eve, God came down to visit them on the seventh day.

This day was to be a day that God's people would remember Him. They would have time to look at the beauiful things God had made. They could go to church to sing and pray to Him. They would have time to read Bible stories and go for walks. God wants us to love the special day He has given to us.

After walking through the Red Sea, the people had a rest at a place where there were wells of water and palm trees. Then it waas time to move on again. Tents werw rolled up. Wter bags werw filled. Food Was made to eat on the trip. The people were going to a mountain called Mount Sinai.

The cloud moved and everyone followed.But some people were not happy. They forgot how God had cared for them.The food the people had brought from Egypt was almost gone. Soon there would be no flour or oil. What would they eat? There was no food out here in the desert.
" Why did Moses bring us here?" they asked.
" We will starve to death."

They came to Moses and Aaron.
"Give us bread, "they said.
"We wish we were in Egypt.There we had many good things to eat."
Moses went to pray to God again. God told Moses He would send food. And He did.

Early the next morning,there were many white grains on the ground. "What is it?" the people asked. They tasted the small white grains. It was very good. They called it MANNA. The word "manna" means "What Is It?". Moses told the people that new manna would be on the ground every morning  for them. Everyone liked the manna. Mothers used it to make flour to bake things. They cooked the manna or ate it raw.

Everyone was happy for the good food God had sent.
