Trusting God in 2009 here are some ...

... Interesting thoughts:

One of the biggest mathematical miracles in the world centers around
Moses and the people of Israel. Moses and the people of Israel were in
the desert, but what was he going to do with them? They had to be fed,
and feeding 3 or 3 1/2 million people would require a lot of food.

According to the Quartermaster General of the Army, it is reported
that Moses would have to have 1500 tons of food each day. Did you know
that to bring that amount of food each day, two freight trains, each a
milelong, would be required? Besides, you must remember, they were out
in the desert, and they would have to have firewood to cook the food.

This would take 4000 tons of wood and a few more freight trains, each a
mile long, for one day.

And just to think, they were forty years in transit.

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 11.8 miles long, just to bring water.
They had no lakes, and only a few wells. How were they to get water?

And then another thing . . . ! They had to get across the Red Sea in
one 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 space in the Red Sea 3 miles wide so they
could walk 5000 abreast to get over in one night. But, then, another
problem. ..

Every time they camped at the end of the day, a campground 2/3's the
size of Rhode Island, or a total of 750 square miles, was needed. That
comprises an area 25 miles wide and 30 miles long. Think of it! This
space just for nightly camping. Do you think Moses figured all this out
before he left? I think not. You see, Moses believed in God, and that
God was going to take are of these things for him.

Let us take courage, we have the same God!

We think our problems are so big.

Remember what God can do!

Just team up with God, and your problems will be in His care. Let him
run your life, and as the old song says: "He will take care of you."

In God We Trust.
