Moses and Israel sang to the Lord who is highly exalted as my strength, song, salvation and warrior. He cast Pharaoh’s chariots and army into the sea. Who is like God, majestic in holiness, awesome in praises and working wonders? In lovingkindness, He led His redeemed people in strength to His holy habitation. God dismayed Edom's chiefs, leaders of Moah trembled and Canaan melted away. God gave the land to His people as a dwelling and inheritance so He could reign forever (Ex. 15: 1-18). God exalts His power, holiness and love against spiritual enemies so you can experience His presence.
The Lord brought back the Red Sea to bury Pharaoh’s chariots and horsemen while Israel walked on dry land. Miriam took timbrel and women danced. Sing to Lord for He is highly exalted (Ex. 15:19-21). Worship is the proper response to God’s wonderous workings and reign.
Moses led Israel from the Red Sea to the wilderness for three days where they found no water. They couldn't drink the bitter waters of Marah so the people grumbled at Moses, “What shall we drink?” Moses cried out to the Lord who showed him a tree. He threw it into the waters, which became sweet, testing them to walk more closely with Him. If they earnestly heard His voice, did right and obeyed His commandments, He would remove all Egypt's diseases as their healer. They camped beside the water in Elim with twelve springs of water and 70 date palms (Ex. 15:22-27). Obeying God’s commands leads to good health and provision of basic needs.
The congregation grumbled against Moses and Aaron saying death in Egypt with meat and bread was better than dying hungry in the wilderness (Ex. 16:1-3). God tests whether you have a grateful heart.
God rained bread from heaven so people could gather a day’s portion daily to test whether they would walk in His instruction. On the sixth day, they would gather twice as much. At evening, they knew the Lord brought them out of Egypt when they received meat and in the morning saw the glory of the Lord when He brought bread. The Lord heard their grumblings because it was against Him, not Moses and Aaron. When they received bread, the Lord's glory appeared in the cloud to prove He is God (Ex. 16:4-12). God shows off glory through His daily provision.
Quails covered the camp at night and layer of dew surrounded the camp. When the dew evaporated, it became bread to eat. He who gathered much had no excess and he who gathered little had no lack. Some did not listen to Moses and the bread left until morning bred worms and became foul (Ex. 16:13-21). God provides daily what you need.
The seventh day is a holy Sabbath observance for rest since they were to gather double on the sixth day. The Lord said to Moses concerning those who gathered on the Sabbath, “How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My instructions?” (Ex. 16:22-30). Resting on the seventh day demonstrates your trust in God’s provision.
The Lord commanded that an omerful of bread be kept in a jar of Testimony so all generations would see that He fed Israel in the wilderness after they left Egypt. Israel ate manna for 40 years until they came to Canaan (Ex. 16:31-36).
