Therefore the people quarreled with Moses and said, “Give us water that we may drink,” And Moses said to them, “Why do you quarrel with me?” Why do you test the LORD? But the people thirsted there for water; and they grumbled against Moses and said “Why now have you brought us up from Egypt to kill us and our children and our livestock  with thirst?” (Exodus 17:2-3)

What Does it Say?

The people quarreled with Moses, “Give us water”  Moses: Why quarrel with me? Why test the LORD?

The people thirsted for water, grumbled against Moses, “Why have you brought up from Egypt to kill us, children and livestock?”

What Does it Mean?

Previously, we see that Rephidim was a place of resting, a place where water was historically expected to be.  The whole congregation of people had followed God, done what He has asked and where did it get them?  It got them to a place where water should be in abundance; yet,  there was nothing.  It is almost like God went out of His way to dry up the water personally.  God let them down again…. isn’t that where we go when this place of need becomes our story?

Oh, we know that God is going to provide Israel with water, we have read the story, but when God leads us to a place where we have taken a huge leap of faith, and then He does not provide in the way that is expected,  disappointment and questions about who God really is come to the surface.  Did we hear God right?  Is God really going to provide, for us, personally?  Is He leading us off a cliff?

Where was Israel going?  The two million plus people of God were on their way to Sinai where they would receive the Law, and then, God said He would lead them into the Promised Land (Exodus 3).  Israel had at this point spent close to two months in the desert, traveling from Egypt to Sinai.  Sinai was literally in view of Rephidim, they had just a little bit further to go, just a few more days to press on and get there.  God was leading His people by the pillar of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night to Sinai, to the place where the Presence of God lives.  God was leading His people to Himself.  Think about that.  The children of God, the people after His own heart, had been away from home for 400+ years, and now they were this close to home…. this close to the heart of the Father…  Think, just for a minute… if your child had been gone a long time from home, and now you knew that they were on the journey back, and they were so close to home… what would you be willing to do to get them home a little quicker? It was almost like God was saying, “Don’t stop here, don’t stop now, come the rest of the way, it is just another 1.5-3 days away!  Come on! Keep coming!   The people were so close.

Instead of pressing in and pressing on, the people got angry.  In verse two it says they “tested the LORD.”  Why is that such a big deal?

God had lead Israel out of Egypt and throughout this wilderness journey, God was testing His people to see what was in their hearts (Deuteronomy 8:2).  God knew what was in their hearts, but the people did not know.  God had taken them out of Egypt in a hot minute, but it would take much longer to get Egypt out of them.  Here, at Rephidim, the people are tired of being the students, tired of God’s testing.  The people in their stubbornness decide to turn the tables on God.  The student is demanding obedience from the Teacher; “Give us water that we may drink”.  It is almost like God’s people are telling God that they are done with His arrangement. They are done being His people and they are done calling Him LORD. Unless He provides water for them to drink here and now, if He can.

Since God is not visible, the anger of the mob falls to Moses.  Moses speaks to God and God speaks to Moses. If Moses does not fix this situation pronto, not only are they done with God, but they will be done with Moses.  Mutiny is on the horizon.

In verse 3 the saying which hurt the heart of God most boils to the top.  The true heart of the people comes out as we read, “They thirsted there for water.

The people just wanted relief; they wanted what was expected to be in that location.  The people wanted the water that would drain off the mountain and pool there at Rephidim.  The people wanted water that would to quench their present thirst; water that would be soaked into the dry and thirsty ground, and leave them wanting again in a minute.

God was trying to teach the people that it’s not about the water!!!  It’s about the Source of the water!!!  We beg and demand for God to give us the provision, but we have no interest in the Provider.  Jehovah Jirah, the God who provides, because it is His name to do so, pleads with His people to COME TO ME!  Genesis to Revelation is the same message, God pleading with, and miraculously making a way for His people to come to Him!  God pleads for us to come to Him, not a ministry, or to the good things we are doing for Him, or to a denomination, or to a program.  He pleads time and time again, and died Himself to make it possible so that we can COME TO HIM!

It is time that we stop begging day after day for the provision and start the trek in our thirst, in our need, in our exhaustion to come to the Provider.  Jesus said in John 7:37, “Any one who thirsts, COME TO ME and from you will flow rivers of LIVING water.”  It is time church, that we stop settling for everything else under the sun, and come to the Source.  At the Source, there will be a never ending, never drying up supply.  Oh, that you would come….

What Does it Mean to Me?

When was there a time that you felt God let you down because He led you to a place that was empty and left you in extreme need?

When have you plead for the provision instead of pressing in to the Provider?

LIVE IT OUT

Today, LORD, show me where YOU are in my need, in the dryness of the journey, and teach me to drink from You.

Weekly Bible Verse: Hebrews 4:14-16

Our weekly Bible verse comes from Hebrews 4: 14-16:

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.  Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”

In times of trial or struggles with sin, how comforting it is to know that Christ has been there and understands what we are going through!  Because He did not sin, we know that we can look to Him for strength and grace when we are in need.

Shoulder to Shoulder: Singleness after Widowhood

Our blog post comes from one of our staff members at The Cove. Patty Nicholas has worked at The Cove for 15 years as a Guest Services Event Coordinator.  Patty lost her husband seven years ago to a heart attack. She lost her father two days later to a rare illness. Through her grief journey, God has given her a voice now  to help others. 

Shoulder to Shoulder : Singleness After Widowhood.

“Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day (1 Timothy 5:5, KJV). 

I recently read a statistic which stated that in the United States alone, 700,000 women become widows every year. Another statistic stated that one in five women will be widowed by the time they are fifty-six. These figures are shocking . . . and then it happens to you.

Nearly seven years ago, I became a number when I lost my husband. How does one move from being married for almost twenty years to suddenly single in the blink of an eye? Just like any other emergency, if you have some advance preparation, you are able to handle the situation. I already had a strong relationship with God.
I found this passage in 1 Timothy 5 both comforting and true.
It was true. I was desolate. Loss of income, loss of friends, and in loss of direction for my life thrust me into a very dark and dry season. It was also true, that when felt as if I had lost everything, I still had the Lord. He was my oasis in the desert.

It was comforting to know that God could fill that void in my heart. I reached out to Him in prayer and supplication, I found I could trust Him for everything.

You don’t have to be widowed, single, or even desolate to reach out to God. However, there is a unique relationship with a person on their own. When you have nothing else and God is all there is, you realize God is all you need.

Questions:
How prepared are you for an emotional emergency?

Has there been a desolate time in your life when God showed you He could be all you needed?

If you are not widowed or single yourself, is there someone that you know who can use an encouraging word?

KENDRA GRAHAM BIBLE STUDY – WEEK 6 HANDOUT

Welcome to Kendra Graham’s online Bible study. Our prayer is that you grow deeper in the knowledge and understanding of God’s Word and His promises for you. Below is the handout for Kendra’s final week of evening Bible study, with a few homework questions at the end. 

*To view this final Bible study via Periscope, click here.

STEP ONE: Pray

STEP TWO: Read the Text.

Exodus 33:21-23 (NASB)

(21) Then the LORD said, “Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; (22) and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. (23) Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen.

STEP THREE: WHAT DOES IT SAY?
THE FACTS ONLY, PLEASE

 In this step you need to list the outstanding facts of the passage. DON’T get caught up in the details; just list the facts. Do not paraphrase. Use the actual words of the passage. This is God’s Word; a lot of times this step seems tedious to some, but I urge you, as we read, and say and write God’s Word, it begins to sink deep into our hearts.  If you just pick one fact out of the verse, write it down and meditate on it.

(21)     The LORD: There is a place by Me…you shall stand…on rock

(22)     It will come…while My glory is passing I will put you in cleft of rock and cover you with MY hand until I have passed

(23)     THEN I will take My hand away and you shall see my back, but face shall not see

STEP FOUR:  WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
THE LESSONS

Look for a lesson to learn from each fact. What are the people doing that they should be doing? What are the people doing that they shouldn’t be doing?

Is there a command to follow? A promise to claim? A warning to heed? An example to follow?  Meditate on these. Ask God what lesson it is that He wants you to hear or learn.

(21)    If we want to see the glory of God first-hand, then we have to go where God is. To know “my God” will take effort and patience. God calls us to specific places because He wants to be personally known by us. He is often visible in our lives, but we don’t like the location, the effort demanded or the amount of faith that it will take to get there.

(22)    God tells Moses that He is going to show Moses His glory; then, when God gets there, He places Moses in a dark and hard place, only to then cover it with His hand and make it even darker. This is not the “glory” we were anticipating when we asked.  God trusts us with dark places for a reason. We need to hold on to His promise when we can’t see how it is going to work out and we surely don’t understand it. This dark, hard place would not be how I thought God would show me who He is. God’s promises are #ENOUGH to hold to in the dark.

(23)    When God takes His hand away, we will be able to see His glory on the backside. Once God passes, His presence changes everything and we can see all the places He has unmistakably touched here in the desert. His presence is #ENOUGH to make this dry, unforgiving place, a place of refuge, not a prison, a place of blessing not curses, a place of thankfulness not bitterness. His presence is #ENOUGH in our deserts, period.

STEP FIVE:  WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME?
NOW APPLY IT… TODAY.

Take the lessons you learned and put them into the form of a personal question that you would ask your spouse, or a friend or your son or daughter.

As you write the questions, listen for God to communicate to you through His Word.

Do not rush. Do not write things down just to have something on paper, this step takes more time that you may think. This is where Scripture meditation becomes real, this is where you begin to hear that still small voice speak to you, and place His finger in your life and begin to direct your paths… this day, and the next, and the next. Do you trust Him enough to put into place that which He is moving you to?

(21)    Do you want to see God’s glory in your desert? What are you willing to do, and what are you not willing to do? Has God called you to come to a place near Him but it doesn’t make sense, and the journey will be uncertain? Maybe God is calling you to the desert, and that is not where you want to see God, so you stay put? Did you realize that there is effort required each day to come to where God is in His Word and listen?  When it comes down to it, do you really want to see God’s glory in your life on His terms or yours?

(22)    How many times do we have more questions than answers about where God has placed us? When have we questioned God’s methods in our lives?  Are we trying to get out of this hard, dry place on our own before God’s glory passes by? What causes us to bug-out early and forget His promises to us? IN this dark, hard, dry place, will we hold to the hope that God has not forgotten or forsaken us here? What promises are you holding to in the dark of your situation?

(23)    Has God been working in this desert and you have missed it? Are you willing to look back and see all the places that God led you, held you, and protected you in your suffering? Has God ever flipped a dark place around for you, where you hated every minute of the struggle, but when you got to the end, and you looked back you saw God in unmistakable ways? Will you allow God to make this desert a place of refuge for you?  Will you trust that God is #ENOUGH for you? Will your faith be forged or forgotten in this place?

STEP SIX:  LIVE IT OUT.

Look over all your facts, lessons and applications for a given passage.

Is there a main theme to them? Does one verse stand out over the rest for some reason?

Hold yourself accountable to LIVE OUT in your daily life that which God impresses upon your heart. Write it out, sign it, date it and claim the transforming power of God’s Word and His presence in your life.

God’s presence is Available and is #ENOUGH

…Focus my feet to come.

God’s presence is #ENOUGH in the dark

…Focus my heart to hold on to His promise.

God’s presence is #ENOUGH to see me through

…Focus my eyes to look and see what He has done
and where He has been in my life.

Jehovah—who is highly exalted above all gods—wants to be known personally by you.

I pray that 2019 is the year in which God’s people allow Him to teach us and test us, even in the desert, and show us how to do more than preach the Message with our lips, but BE the Message with our lives.

Shalom and blessing to you

Shema Israel!

                                                            Adonai Eluhanu

                                                            Adonai Echad

I know the journey is hard and unbearable at times; hold to the promise of who Jehovah is, and we will find that I AM that I AM is more than, #ENOUGH

God bless you all!

Kendra Graham Bible Study: Week 5 Handout

Welcome to Kendra Graham’s online Bible study. Our prayer is that you grow deeper in the knowledge and understanding of God’s Word and His promises for you. Below is the handout for the fifth week of the Bible study with a few homework questions at the end. 

I AM
#ENOUGH
TO BE YOUR BANNER IN THE BATTLE

 

The Three Questions
I AM #ENOUGH to be your banner in the battle….
STEP ONE: Pray
STEP TWO: Read the Text.

Exodus 17:8-12a (NASB) (8) Then Amalek came and fought against Israel at Rephidim. (9) So Moses said to Joshua, “Choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will station myself on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.” (10) Joshua did as Moses told him and fought against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron and Hur went up to the top of the hill. (11) So it came about as Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed. (12a) But Moses’ hands were heavy….

  • STEP THREE WHAT DOES IT SAY? THE FACTS ONLY PLEASE

In this step you need to list the outstanding facts of the passage. DON’T get caught up in the details, just list the facts. Do not paraphrase. Use the actual words of the passage. This is God’s Word; a lot of times this step seems tedious to some, but I urge you, as we read, and say and write God’s Word, it begins to sink deep into our hearts. If you just pick one fact out of the verse, write it down and meditate on it.

8: Amalek came and fought against Israel. 9: Moses to Joshua: Choose men FOR US and go fight Amalek. I will station myself on top of hill with staff of God in hand. 10: Joshua fought against Amalek, Moses Aaron and Hur to top of hill. 11: As Moses held hand up, Israel prevailed, let hand down Amalek prevailed 12a: Moses’ hands were heavy.

  • STEP FOUR: WHAT DOES IT MEAN? THE LESSONS

Look for a lesson to learn from each fact. What are the people doing that they should be doing? What are the people doing that they shouldn’t be doing?

Is there a command to follow? A promise to claim? A warning to heed? An example to follow? Meditate on these. Ask God what lesson it is that He wants you to hear or learn.

8: There WILL be battles. People will try to take our freedom and send us back to slavery. In these moments we can often experience incredible periods of doubt, during which we question everything and wonder if maybe this “freedom thing” just isn’t for us. During these times it’s easy to slip back into victim mentality, thinking this is as good as it gets for people like us.

9: There are different responsibilities for different people in the same battle. Even here we see Moses display great faith as a leader should. #lessoninleadership God is #ENOUGH, and God’s plan for Moses was not on the battlefield but on the praying field. Be confident in where God has called you, and don’t try to control areas that you are supposed to delegate and let go. “for us” – Notice the direction was not to get the strongest, the smartest, or the ones with the most experience…the only qualification for battle was to find those men who are “for us.” God chooses people who have hearts that are for Him. Your resume may be impressive…your Biblical knowledge may be superb…but if your heart isn’t right… you cannot be trusted and will not be chosen for battle.

10: We need to man our unique battle stations and not drop the ball, sleep in, or forget to show up. The battle is real, and real lives are in the balance. It matters that you show up.

11: The posture of prayer. Oswald Chambers said, “Prayer is the work.” When we direct the eyes of others towards Jehovah in our personal battles, we begin to see Jehovah Nissi overwhelm the enemy and empower us in His strength to continue to fight and press in and not give up. When we drop our eyes from the vertical to the horizontal, the battle will overwhelm us and take our breath away. Prayer is essential to see the victorious work of God personally and corporately.

12: Prayer can bring us to weariness more than any other action. Prayer is work that we have to set our minds and hearts to! Don’t give up because of the way things seem, or because of the lack of movement or the length of time you have been pleading. Keep praying in the weariness…often at the weariest moment is where we will see the biggest victory.

  • STEP FIVE: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME? NOW APPLY IT…. TODAY.

Take the lessons you learned and put them into the form of a personal question that you would ask your spouse, or a friend or your son or daughter.

As you write the questions, listen for God to communicate to you through His Word.

Do not rush. Do not write things down just to have something on paper, this step takes more time that you may think. This is where Scripture meditation becomes real, this is where you begin to hear that still small voice speak to you, and place His finger in your life and begin to direct your paths…. this day, and the next, and the next. Do you trust Him enough to put into place that which He is moving you to?

8: When has there been a battle in your life that you had to fight? How often would we rather just appease the enemy, thinking the enemy will leave us alone if we are just tolerant enough? What battles are worth fighting? What hills are worth dying on? Are there any? Have we hidden from the battle too long? How are we called to stand and to “do all to stand” (Ephesians 6:13)? How does that look today? Where have I been satisfied to have a victim mentality?

9: Where have you been called to serve? Are you able to serve in your area with passion and precision, or do you feel like you also need to serve in all the other areas as well because no one will do it right if it’s not you leading in every aspect? What kind of heart would God say you have? What, or Who, are you “for”? Are you for you? Are you for God? What do your actions say about who you are for? Are you willing to ask God to reveal who you are for? Do you have a heart to be for Him, or do you have a list of reasons why you are too injured, too weak, too hurt, too ignorant to be used by God?

10: What keeps you in bed and prevents you from showing up daily to the battle? What causes you to think that your presence is inconsequential in the grand scheme of things?

11: Are you panicking about all your eyes see? All your heart feels? The immensity of the battle? The reality of the battle? Will you decide today to pray over that battle each and every morning, even before you get out of bed each day? Will you take that step forward today…come out of hiding, reach your arms to heaven, and pray and look to Jehovah who wants to be your Nissi, your banner? How would it look today for you to walk out in strength keeping your eyes UP, UP, UP all day? It will take determination….

12: What are you weary of praying about? When, in your weariness, have you seen victory? Will you share that and encourage another weary soul with it?

  • STEP SIX: LIVE IT OUT.

Look over all your facts, lessons and applications for a given passage.
Is there a main theme to them? Does one verse stand out over the rest for some reason??
Hold yourself accountable to LIVE OUT in your daily life that which God impresses upon your heart. Write it out, sign it, date it and claim the transforming power of God’s Word and His presence in your life.

Today I will show up to the battle… in my role… Today I will pray for the heart Jehovah needs me to have Today I will pray… pray… and pray… not ignoring the fight Today I will KNOW…. I AM THAT I AM IS MORE THAN #ENOUGH in my battle Shout that out throughout today, then tomorrow Help my unbelief.
