3 Days


That's how long it took for celebrating to turn to complaining.

In Exodus 15 we read about the huge celebration that took place when God provided a miraculous way out for His people Israel. Moses and Miriam lead the party with singing and dancing.

For the next 3 days they were lead through the wilderness. After 3 days they came to some water. Surely another God provision. Until they took a drink and found the water was bitter.

Now instead of celebrating they started complaining. It took them 3 days. If I'm honest it can sometimes take me 3 hours.

A verse that helps me understand is Ex 15 v 26

That’s the place where God set up rules and procedures; that’s where he started testing them.

God is in the business of testing us as well as taking care of us. We need to celebrate both and trust Him in both.
