The Jewish people are not questioning their faith in God. Rather they are wondering to what extent God is involved in their everyday lives. This question was a natural outgrowth of the presiding worldview regarding God’s interaction with Man. In Egypt, and civilization in general, God and nature were viewed as static, with unchanging rules governing nature. The newly freed Children of Israel are therefore challenging God’s involvement in day-to-day affairs. In turn, God is educating the Nation about His supremacy and control over nature and all the workings of the world. God created water and it is in God’s control to give it forth or to withhold it. This message becomes embedded in the psyche of the Chosen Nation and its practical application bears fruit in the Chosen Land where the Jews pray daily for God to water the earth.
