Mat 19:26a ‘But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible…'”
With God nothing is impossible…..
The Biggest Mathematical Miracle in the World!
Moses and the people were in the desert, but what was he going to do with them? They had to be fed, and feeding 3 or 3 million people requires a lot of food.
According to the Quartermaster General in the Army, it is reported that Moses would have to have 1,500 tons of food each day. Do you know that to bring that much food each day, two freight trains each a mile long would be required!
Besides, you must remember they were out in the desert, and they would have to have firewood to use in cooking the food. This would take 4,000 tons of wood and a few more freight trains, each a mile long, just for one day.
And just think, they were forty years in transit.
Oh yes, they would have to have water. If they only had enough to drink and wash a few dishes, it would take 11 million gallons each day, and a freight train with tank cars 1,800 miles long, just to bring water!
And then another thing: They had to get across the Red Sea in one night. If they went on a narrow path, double file, the line would be 800 miles long and would require 35 days and nights to get through. So there had to be a space in the Red Sea, 3 miles wide so that they could walk 5,000 abreast to get over in one night.
But then another problem: Each time they camped at the end of the day, a campground two-thirds the size of the state of Rhode Island was required, or a total of 750 square miles long. Think of it! This space just for nightly camping.
Do you think Moses figured all this out before he left Egypt?
I think not!
You see, Moses believed in God. God took care of these things for him. With obedience comes God’s provision for the task regardless of its size. If it is God’s will you cannot fail!
Now, do you think God has any problem taking care of all your needs? Maybe one of the most important things to remember is that God will answer our prayers in His will and not our will! The difference never being because God does not care or is not able!!
