    'For there is no good tree that produces rotten fruit, nor again a rotten tree that produces good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. For people don't gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings out tha...

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only born Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God didn't send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him. He who believes in him is not judged. He who doesn't belie...

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).
