From today’s reading in the One Year Chronological Bible dated 2/5:

God led the people out of Egypt but not the easy, quick way. He took them the long way. “Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt”. We have seen that God’s ways are not always easy but He is always working behind the scenes for our good. So the children of Israel come out carrying Joseph’s bones as promised and the Lord leads them by day in a pillar of cloud and by night in a pillar of fire. But when the Egyptians pursue them, the children of Israel question Moses. “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness?” See, the children of Israel are on a faith journey too. They did not know what the Lord was doing behind the scenes so they lashed out at Moses. God is going to take them into the wilderness and teach them how to walk by faith but it isn’t going to be an easy process. It never is but oh how it’s so worth it! Next, the Lord again works on behalf of the Israelites and delivers them through the Red Sea, crushing their enemies. Then Moses and the children of Israel sing a beautiful song of worship and praise to the Lord. And Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron, leads the ladies in worship and dance. But…3 days later…no water. The praise stops. The complaining starts. How long will it take Israel to learn to trust the Lord? Keep reading to find out!

(Exodus 13:1-15:27)
