Settling in the wilderness.
One of my favorite stories in the bible is the journey to the Promised Land. It is sometime difficult to believe that God’s promises for us are just around the corner. Because of little faith, we spend 40years in the wilderness missing what belongs to us. This story bewilders my human existence.
Moses woke up one morning and was told to lead the Israelites out of bondage. It is said that the journey from Egypt to Israel was an 11 (eleven) day trip and yet it took them 40 years!!!!! 40 full years to receive that which was promised.
I have heard and seen people who are at the exact spot year after year. I have as well
fallen victim of this in many areas of my life. We tend to fear to fail; we worry about the road unknown and so on. For these reasons we are kept in bondage from our wants and desires instead of setting our faith to the creator and owner of all things. Take a good peak at Psalm 24 for it written that He is the owner of all things…..!!!!
Few months ago, I was praying with a friend when all over a sudden she said, Kathie, we have settled in the wilderness for so long. Moreover, it is totally our fault because we have accepted the circumstances.
It is time to believe in God to work wonders in our lives. This particular story is an all
rounder with all conditions of our lives. For example; financial wilderness, job wilderness, partner wilderness, social wilderness, political wilderness, religious wilderness and so on…
Gosh!!!!!! It frightens me to be at the exact spot 30- 40 years down the road. Yet again, that is exactly what will happen if we loose trust and faith in God and ourselves.
Let’s take a stand. A lot is at stake if we don’t. 40 years in the wilderness is such a waste of time, years and blessings.
