And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth.
Today's Morsel: When the children of Israel complained to Moses that they were tired of the manna and that they wanted meat, the Lord was angry and told Moses that He would provide them flesh for 30 days and it would be so much that it would make them sick. Moses was pretty shocked and asked the Lord if they were to kill the cattle and livestock to feed themselves. The Bible mentions over 600,000 footmen, this was only the men that could go to war, it was not everyone. So if you were to add everyone, you would probably be talking over 2 million people. God asked him if he thought His hand was too short that He couldn't do what He said. And scripture says, "And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth." Do you know how much quail this was. Let me see if I can give you some insight. According to measurements, a day's journey during this time was approximately 24 miles per day. And a cubit was approximately 22 inches long, or the length of a man's arm. So God dropped quail about 48 miles long and 31/2 feet high. Talk about a smorgasbord. Now you should be able to understand why Jesus could take the 2 fish and 5 loaves and feed the multitude. He's God. As He asked Abraham let me ask you, " Is there anything to hard for the Lord? I know not any." Grasp this, because there is nothing to hard for our God to do.
Sing: Our God is greater, our God is stronger, Lord You higher than any other. Our God is healer, awesome in power our God, our God.
