Israel wandered in the wilderness for 40 days, and actually the journey was only about 11 days. Yes, they grumbled and complained but God brought them out. No one was sick, their clothes and shoes had not worn out. That’s a miracle right there.
Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever. He changes not. We as people today at times are so unthankful. God provided the children of Israel manna from heaven. He watched over them and protected them. He’ll do the same for you.
But we trust in our own abilities, and we are defeated by the enemy the devil. The Bible asked the question, “Why are you mindful of me?” yes, Jesus loves us and once what’s best for us. Not our well. We need to pray what God’s will will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
I feel we take God for granted. Some only call on him when they are in trouble. What about the other days? We go to church when it is convenient. Jesus said for us to not forsake the assembly of ourselves much more as we see the day appearing.
We are living in the last of the last days. No doubt about it. Jesus is soon to appear to take his children home.
God has been so good to us. Sometimes we don’t realize at times how good he is to us. Aren’t you tired of living in the wilderness? You can come out of the wilderness in your life. God will gladly bring you out and will restore your joy and happiness.
The Israelites kept going around in circles. Are you just going around in circles in your life? Are you depressed, full of anxiety? God doesn’t want that for you. You have been given medicine from the doctor, but you don’t take it like you are supposed to.
Whom the son sets free is free indeed. We are no longer in bondage. We must look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. He will surely bring you out of your wilderness, if only you trust in him.
The Bible tells us that all things are possible to then that belief. Come out of your wilderness. God wants to bring you out. Jesus is a chain breaker in your life. He cares that you might have life and have it more abundantly. He doesn’t want you to feel depressed or oppressed.
Cast your cares on Jesus, he cares for and loves you. The world is dark, but Jesus is light. The church needs to let our light shine. You’ve been in the wilderness way too long, it’s time to come out.
Years in Christ Jesus,
