Moments In Time
“Then Moses led Israel from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness and found no water. When they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore it was named Marah. So the people grumbled at Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” Then he cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree; and he threw it into the waters, and the waters became sweet. There He made for them a statute and regulation, and there He tested them. And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.” Exodus 15:22-26
The LORD that healeth thee – The LORD God is the Great Physician. God was trying to teach them to trust Him, that He would heal them – that He was their source, their God. He wanted them to know Him as their Physician. Know Him as their God. Do you truly believe God is Your Healer – Your Great Physician? Are you standing before the waters of difficulty? Is the Lord attempting to prove His Word in you to see if you will trust Him or will you also complain, grumble and cry because you do not trust Him as your Healer?
