What two things did not wear out during the 40 years in the wilderness?
How old was Moses when he died?
Who took over after Moses?
LESSON: The children of Israel wandered in the wilderness for forty years because their faith was weak. Are you wandering in the wilderness, spiritually speaking? God is only a prayer away.
PRAYER: Help me dear God to stay focused on You. Increase my faith as I follow you. Amen
Have you ever driven up the side of a mountain and then stopped to look back? Sometimes fog can be thick and the driving treacherous. Once you have made it to the top, you can look over the side. There, winding below is the stretch of road over which you have just traveled. The view can be a little terrifying, but at the same time, breathtaking! Sometimes we Christians need to stop along life's road and look back. Although it might have been winding and steep, we can see how God directed us by His faithfulness. When we face difficulties, we sometimes forget God's past faithfulness. We see only the detours and the dangerous path. But look back, and you will also see the joy of victory, the challenge of the climb, and the presence of the Savior, who has promised never to leave us nor forsake us. As we look back at the past, we can see failures and victories in our lives. Let us take courage! The One who brought us this far will continue to direct our Christian walk. Praise the Lord that He has been with us in times of trials as much as in times of joy. Thanks God for His undying love. If you are in the wilderness, spiritually speaking, stop to reflect over your life and rededicate your life to Jesus Christ. Remember, He will never leave you nor forsake you!
