1 When the Israelites escaped from Egypt—when the family of Jacob left that foreign land—
2 the land of Judah became God's sanctuary, and Israel became His kingdom.
3 The Red Sea saw them coming and hurried out of their way! The water of the Jordan River turned away.
4 The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs!
5 What's wrong, Red Sea, that made you hurry out of their way? What happened, Jordan River, that you turned away?
6 Why, mountains, did you skip like rams? Why, hills, like lambs?
7 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob.
8 He turned the rock into a pool of water; yes, a spring of water flowed from solid rock.
God's powerful workings with His people!
God has complete power over His creation. Water can be a violent force, but God can stop it and bring us through safely. The Lord can also supply the necessary water to quench our thirst...from a rock.
God is our protector and provider, calming the storms of life and giving living water to the thirsty.
In John 4:10 we read;
Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."
Come and drink!
Thank you Jesus that You are the living water of which I can drink and not thirst again. Fill me to overflowing with Your Spirit.
