Daily Bible Reading: Exodus 13 – 15
Verse of the Day: Exodus 12:13 – “And they came to Elim, where were twelve springs of water, and threescore and ten palm-trees: and they encamped there by the waters.”
Taken on a round about way when leaving Egypt. Trapped at the Red sea. Rescued by God’s Almighty hand. Then the bitter waters of Marah. What an auspicious start to this deliverance.
In today’s reading, we find that “Jehovah showed him a tree” (verse 25). Another grand picture that when life seems to be bitter and unpalatable – God has a tree – a Cross for us to look toward. When the tree was cast into the waters, they became drinkable. When the Cross is in our troubled lives, they become livable,
And our verse for today – a reminder that nearby, in our future there will be an abundance of provision for all our needs. Hang in there and trust Him through it all.
Prayer: God who provided the tree (Cross), thank You for planning to meet my needs through Your provisions. Amen.
