Scholars estimate that Moses needed fifteen hundred tons of food and four thousand tons of firewood every twenty four hours.
Keeping those folks watered and washed required about fifty million litres of water daily. To get them across the Red Sea in one night, he had to form them into a line more than three miles long. That meant the ‘road’ they travelled on through the Sea had to be at least three miles wide. Whew! How did he do it?
Hebrews 11:29a- By faith— the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land…
Moses did what he could and believed God for the rest.
I’ve been trying out that Moses faith and it reminds of my recipe for Cheese and Onion Pie.
Toss four cups of chopped onions with four cups of grated cheddar cheese. Pack the mix into a deep pie plate lined with pastry. It will be too full. Pay no attention.
Stick all the mix into that pie shell. Add a top crust, pierce it, and plop it in the oven. Bake at 425 degrees F. for ten minutes and then 350 degrees for another 30-35. Serve it hot or cold. Yum!
For a crowd, line a 9×13 baking dish with pastry, follow the rest of the instructions. Cut into two
inch squares and serve.
Everyone always wants the recipe. They never believe that the only ingredients are cheese, onions and pastry.
“Haven’t you forgotten something?” they query? And I say, “Just try it.”
They do and when they serve this delicious dish to unbelieving others; they say “Just try it.”
I invite you to try my pie recipe and my God.
Then let him try you.
