Water from the Rock (2)

ADONAI spoke to Moses saying, "Take the staff and gather the assembly, you and your brother Aaron.  Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will give out its water.   Numbers 20:7

In the readings in this week we see the story of where Moses hit the rock when He was asked by God to speak to the rock.  The photos are of stretches of water of the Beppu Bay and these rocks that seemed to give forth water, outside of the Aquarium.

We know that this act of hitting the rock had powerful consequences when Moses was just to speak to the rock for it to bring forth water.  Somehow these views seemed to speak of God's amazing hand over and on everything, and because of the reading and having these scenes on my mind, I tried to take a few pictures to express that sense of the water coming from the rock.  I won't speak too much in this post, but will just share the photos and set the scene.

Please feel free to share any reflections or add any scriptures about God as our Rock.  I may add some too to follow!

Blessings and Shalom.  Have a Great week!




  1. Thank you. I remember that story often.

  2. I wonder how it would have gone if he had spoken.

  3. 19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
    20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone...
    Ephesians 2:19-20

    2. Praise God! and amen!!, my fellow citizen and sister in the Lord. xx

  5. Speaking to the rock is one thing, hitting it is another thing. That was the scene of Moses' tragedy.
    The rock in your pictures looks powerful.

    1. Hi Duta, yes, I thought so too about the rock.
      Thanks always for your observations!! Blessed be the Rock!!
