“When they came to the oasis of Marah, the water was too bitter to drink. So they called the place Marah (which means “bitter”). Then the people complained and turned against Moses. “What are we going to drink?” they demanded. So Moses cried out to the Lord for help, and the Lord showed him a piece of wood. Moses threw it into the water, and this made the water good to drink” Exodus 15:23-24, NLT.
“Taste and see that I am good. Taste and see that My plans are good. The bitterness in your mouth did not come from Me. I will remove the bitter taste from your experiences. It’s been like gall in your heart, but I am turning your bitter waters to sweet, and you will taste and see that I am good. You will feast on My love and kindness. You will feast on My goodness. You will hide My Word in your heart, and it will minister to the deep and hidden places in your soul. Rejoice, I am making your bitter waters sweet. And out of you will flow rivers of living waters to bring healing to the nations. Says the Spirit of the LORD.”
