He Can Take Care Of YOU!

…for everyone included in the numbering from twenty years old and above, for six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty men. Ex 38:26
The epic classic The Ten Commandments was on the other night. I happened on the channel just as the Hebrews were leaving Egypt and Moses says something like, “Lord, there are so many. How will I know where to lead them?”
While there were quite few people projected in the movie, I think it pales in comparison to the actual number.
There were 603,550 men above the age of 20 years old.
That’s just men over 20; what if just ½ of them were married?
That would then be 301,775 women making 905,325 men and women.
If the married couples each had a conservative 2 children that would be 603,550 children added to the 905,325 would yield a total of 1, 508,875.
Think of how long it would take to move over a million people around.
That’s more people than live in San Antonio, Texas!
I know it seems like a daunting number; an impossibility!
Even Moses could see the logistics of the situation; And Moses said, “The people whom I am among are six hundred thousand men on foot; yet You have said, ‘I will give them meat, that they may eat for a whole month.’ Shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, to provide enough for them? Or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to provide enough for them?”
And the LORD said to Moses, “Has the LORD’s arm been shortened? Now you shall see whether what I say will happen to you or not.” Num 11:21-23
I serve a God that takes impossibilities and makes them possible.
His arm is still not shortened.
If He can take care of 1.5 million…in a desert…for 40 years…then He can take care of YOU!

One thought on “He Can Take Care Of YOU!

  1. It is said that saints are old fashioned, out of step with todays society. Well, who has changed? God does not change! I for one would rather serve an unchanging God than to flow with the world. The world, the ways of the world will parish, but God is setteled from everlasting to everlasting.
