Quiet time alone with God during the day is much needed to grow and rest spiritually. It allows fellowship to be made to God that can only be made with intention. Upon reading through Exodus 16 this morning for my quiet hour, I ventured into the story of the Israelites wandering through the Wilderness of Sin after departing from the Red Sea and how God supplied Manna from heaven for them for 40 days as they walked through the vast wilderness as a way of testing the Israelites and to humble them. This post will focus on a key passage, Exodus 16:19-23, and its context.
Perhaps one of the most intriguing Bible descriptions is the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. Not only is it filled with gripping detail, but concrete geographical descriptions. It is by far one of the most contented Bible stories, ranking among Creation and the Flood in Genesis, the book of Daniel, and the Book of Revelation. Most skeptics like to incite that there are flaws in not only the translation of the Bible, but accounts told therein. For my quiet hour, I have been thoroughly reading through Exodus and researching geographically the locations of the cities that the Israelites camped in in the 13th century. Many of these places are known by different names now but still does not take away the authenticity of scripture. This post will cover the part of the Exodus most skeptics love to incite an argument over: the sea crossing.
