A Way in the Wilderness

I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. (Is 43:18, 19)

The Children of Israel left Egypt’s lush NileValley to traverse one of the most inhospitable environments known to humankind. The Wilderness of Sinai is a desert rivaling the hostility of the Sahara, the Kalahari, or the Peruvian Sechura.
They entered this sandy oven with no food, water, or shelter from the elements. The Children of Israel believed so deeply in God’s Promised Land they stepped out into barren nothingness on His word alone.
And He did not disappoint. He brought water from a rock. He rained down food from the sky. He shaded them with a cloud, and kept them healthy and in abundance until they arrived at their dreamt-of Promised Home.
God can take care of you in a hostile climate too, be it literal or merely financial. He’s promised to provide all we need, in good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over.
So no matter how things look now, trust God the way the Israelites did. You can count on Him to make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

David
