    Brothers, I don't regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do: forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13 WEBI was at a very dark p...

    Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31 NIVAfter coming out of the grocery store, I found that I had parked way out in the parking lot and did not really feel like taking the buggy all the way back to the store. I saw a few other carts nearby that people had left in the parking lot....

Going Back to Egypt

  • Why is the LORD bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will become a prey. Would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt? And they said to one another, Let us choose a leader and go back to Egypt. Numbers 14:34 ESV

    When the Israelites came to the land that was promised them, they stopped and sent out spies to survey it. When the spies returned, all of them but Caleb and Joshua told a grim tale of giants living in fortresses. The Israelites were terrified and decided to stone Moses, choose another leader, and go back to Egypt.

    God had not changed His mind. His promise still stood firm. He had brought them this far, and would take them the rest of the way if they would just stay the course. The people changed. They became full of fear and wanted to turn back. They began to wonder if it was all worth it.

    God has brought you this far, and though the road in front of you may now look terrifying, do not turn back. God is still with you. He will still fulfill His promise. God has not changed His mind. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil for He is with me (from Psalm 23:4).
