Water Miracles (1)

Miracles are amazing works done by God’s power. Many times God did miracles for His people. Several of these miracles involved water. For the next several days we will look at some of these “water miracles” from the Bible.
God’s chosen people, the Israelites, were slaves in Egypt. The king would not free them from slavery. So God sent ten terrible events to bother the people of Egypt. God did this to show His power. He also wanted the Egyptians to let the Israelites go free.
The Egyptian people got their water from the Nile River. So the first terrible event was that God changed the Nile River into blood. The water in the canals and lakes changed to blood, too. Our Bible Reading says that even the water stored in jars changed into blood. Then the fish in the Nile died and began to stink. What a mess!
This water miracle shows us that God has power over nature. God created the earth and everything in it. And God can control the things He made. Thank God for His power today!
