    According to the Quartermaster General of the Army, it is reported that Moses would have to have had 1500 tons of food each day.

    Do you know that to bring that much food each day, two freight trains, each at least a mile long, would be required!

    They were out in the desert, so they would have to have firewood to use for cooking the food. This would take 4000 tons of wood and a few more freight trains, each a mile long, each and every day. Just think, they were forty years in transit.

    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, 1800 miles long, 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 5000 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! This much space for camping over night.

    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. Now do you think God has any problem taking care of all your needs?

    Our God is an Awesome God!!!

    So when the road you're traveling on…seems difficult at best, just remember, keep on praying, and God will do the rest.

    That's amazing. You would think they would have shown more appreciation for all that manna.
