They tested the Lord, saying, “Is the Lord among us or not?” Exodus 17:7
Our need for a Saviour is shown when we test the Lord. We test the Lord when we question his involvement in our lives and demand that he show his power, his love, or his presence, even though he has done so time and again. Our text this week illustrates those times when we are inclined to test God, but also how we are shown ways that we can continue in a trusting faith. In the same ways that Moses walks with God in this passage, we see Jesus being the one who is greater than Moses exemplifying these same qualities in his perfection and character.
