We're glad you could join us again for today's Daily Bread. Our last story was a very memorable one about when God parted the Red Sea so His people could pass through it on dry land. Then when Pharaoh and his host followed to capture God's people and bring them back to slavery, the Lord closed the sea on Pharaoh and his army and killed each and every one of them.

The children of Israel were so very relieved. Moses and God's people sang a song to God that you can read in Exodus 15:1-19. There are several places in the Bible that mention Moses speaking the words of or writing songs, so when you hear about the song of Moses, remember there are more than one.

Remember Miriam, Moses sister, who watched as Moses was taken out of the river by Pharaoh's daughter when he was a baby? Miriam was a prophetess, gifted with spiritual insight and she was with her brothers Moses and Aaron.

The Song of Moses Celebration

If you have seen on television, family celebrations where people of ethnic backgrounds dance to music that is not what is native to you, you can sense the happiness of the celebration in their hearts. Miriam, being older than her brother, which means she was more than 80, took a timbrel (a small hand drum or tambourine) and all the women followed her dancing with timbrels. It was a joyous time.

Moses led the children of Israel from the Red sea to the wilderness of Shur. They are on the far west side of the Sinai Peninsula traveling south and they went three days without finding water. They came to a city called Marah, but they couldn't drink the water there because it was polluted. The people grumbled against Moses, complaining, What will we drink?

Moses prayed to the Lord and the Lord showed him a tree. Moses threw the tree into the waters and they were purified. God gave them an order to test them.

He said, If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God and will do what is right in His sight, follow His commandments and keep all His laws, I won't strike you with the plagues that I brought on the Egyptians, because I am the Lord that heals you.That must have been quite an experience, right before your eyes, for polluted waters to be "healed" and become pure. God is so magnificent at analogies.

They traveled further south and when they came to Elim, there were twelve wells of water and 70 palm trees there, so they camped there by the waters.

When you read the word wilderness, you may think of an area uninhabited by human beings, overgrown, etc. Keep in mind that this wilderness that God's people were traveling through was in a desert region. The days were arid and the nights were cold. Having God on your side, would be a definite advantage and the children of Israel just saw another example of that.

When we come back next time, we'll find out if the children of Israel were patient during their test as hunger becomes their next issue in the wilderness. Watch for that next time, at Daily Bread.
