Is 43:18-19–“I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
The Children of Israel came out of Egypt full of hope. But their hope turned to despondency when they learned that Pharaoh’s army was on their trail. Soon they found themselves trapped between violent pursuers and the Red Sea. The situation was hopeless, until the “One who makes a way where there is no way” divided the waters and brought them safely to the other side.
But soon the Israelites’ water supplies ran out. They became thirsty, unable to find a drop to drink. The situation was critical until Moses, at God’s direction, struck a rock and a river broke forth sufficient to provide water for a million men, their families, and livestock.
And yet soon their food supplies ran out. They were doomed to starvation until the Lord rained down meat and manna from the skies.
Yes, the Children of Israel found themselves challenged by enemies, thirst, and lack. And yet somehow they never went without, even for a day. God kept them safe, filled, and abundantly blessed all the way from Egypt to their Promised Land.
And He’ll do the same for you. You see, The Lord’s not intimidated by Media reports about a bad economy. God is the Source of all supply and nothing is too hard for Him. He’ll make a way in the wilderness for you, and rivers in the desert. He’ll take care of you until you reach your Promised Land.
Today’s Prayer: Thanks for taking care of me, Lord. I may not always know where your provision is coming from, but I trust it that it will be there when I need it. You cared for the Children of Israel in the wilderness, and you’ll take care of me today.
