Moses and the people were in the desert, but how was he going to take care of them? They had to be fed. According to the Quartermaster General of the Army Moses would have needed 1500 tons of food a day to fed the people. That would require two frieght trains daily a mile long filled with food. They were in the desert, remember and they would need wood to cook the food with. There isn't a lot of wood in the desert! It would take 4000 tons of firewood and a few more frieght trains each a mile long just for the firewood each day. And remember they were in transit for 40 years. They would also need water. If they only had enough to drink and to do a few dishes they would need 11 million gallons of water a day. They would need a freighttrain with tanker cars 1800 miles long just to carry the water each day. Another problem- getting across the Red Sea. If they went on a normal path double file, the line would be 800 miles long and would require 35 days and nights to get everyone across. But since they crossed in one night, the path acrossed the Red Sea had to be 3 miles across so they could walk 5000 abreast. But then there is still another problem. Each night when they stopped to camp, they would need a campground 2/3 the size of Rhode Island aproximately 750 square miles long. This space just for nightly camping. Do you think Moses figured all this out ahead of time? Of Course not! You see, Moses trusted in God to provide. And HE did. Now don't you think our great God can take care of you!?
