Some Interesting Facts
Moses and the people were in the desert but what was he going to do with them?
They had to be fed, and feeding 2 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 had 1,500 tons of food each day.
Do you know that to bring that much food each day two freight trains at least a mile long would be required!
Besides you must remember, they were out in the desert so 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 in transit. And, oh yes, they would have to have water.
If they only had enough to drink and wash a few dishes it would take 11,000,000 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 at night.
Now 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, there is 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!
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 all these things for him.
Now, do you think God has any problem taking care of all your needs?
