        As Israel followed the leading of the Lord, they 
entered into different experiences and trials; and these 
experiences helped them to understand themselves better, 
as well as to understand the power and grace of God. 
There are three such experiences recorded in chapters 17 
and 18.

        In verses 1-7 of chapter 17 we read of the water 
coming forth from the rock. When Moses, through faith, 
smote the rock as he had been instructed to do, water 
came forth to quench the thirst of the murmuring Jews. 
The Jews criticized Moses and murmured against God, and 
Moses turned to God in this hour of trial. When Moses 
carried out God's instructions, the needs of the people 
were met.

        In our daily trials and tribulations, God will 
meet our needs if we are willing to go to Him, seek His 
guidance, and follow His divine instructions. Too many 
Christians today are spiritual pygmies. They never feed 
upon the Word of God, and it is, therefore, impossible 
for them to be equipped to face the world and all its 
problems.
