Wilderness Wanderers

Forty years of wilderness wandering plagued the Israelites because they listened to the report of 10 spies instead of God’s promise to give them the promised land. They had experienced God’s miraculous works for their deliverance, yet still, rather than believing God’s promise and facing their enemies with faith they were caught up in human deception and discouragement. The giants occupying their land were huge and the enemies were strong, the challenge too dangerous, the risk too great. They refused to move out and take possession for fear of their lives.

They wept and wailed through their night with bitterness! They complained and grumbled about their plight! Why did we leave Egypt? We’ll die in this forlorn land! Shouldn’t we just go back? Wouldn’t it be better? Be safer? Wouldn’t it just be easier back in captivity? Those unfaithful, unbelieving, grumbling Israelites twenty years and older never made it into the land of promise because God saw to it that their unbelief would not be honored.

Oh the wilderness wanderings we face when we focus on deception instead of truth. When we focus on the giants instead of the promises; when we rebel instead of trust! You know it don’t you? The wilderness of rebellion, unbelief, deception and despair? Does your old slavery and bondage to sin just seem more comfortable, easier and safer than trusting God for deliverance? We need to move on out and take what God has promised through trust, while He still gives opportunity. Courage is found when we take God at His word and trust him even though the giants are many and the tasks impossible.

1 Corinthians 10:11
“For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”



The Perfect Plan

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

So now it’s time to just believe for that issue ~ for whatever it is that you’ve been praying for. Sometimes it feels like our prayers are inefficient and lacking impact doesn’t it? Well, let’s see as it is ~ We don’t get the big picture! God is a God of detail and nothing is done without perfection! His engineering skills and creative credentials are amazing and out this world with design so exquisite, that we can’t even fathom even in our most brilliant thoughts!

Consider the wilderness tabernacle that God designed and gave instructions for, with every small detail fashioned to precision art for a precise plan. The Tabernacle was a portable tent with a wooden framework to give it stability. The entire sanctuary was God’s perfect design and the beginning of the visible reminders of a Spiritual God and His plan. ~ not man’s! No, not one spec of man’s imagination was used in it’s architectural design, but it was all laid out with specific instructions to be followed at set up and take down on their journey and all through the pages of history God’s skill and perfect, organized plan for all things and all events has proven faithful and true. He hasn’t lost control and like the tabernacle, He has your problem in the palm of His hand and is laying out the perfect color scheme, floor plan and plan of action customized just for you ~ perfect for you! You are His tabernacle in your wanderings ~ wilderness or otherwise ~ for your journey of life. You are His design and your life is His plan! Allow Him to work in your issues and just believe today for His perfection over your concerns.

Heb 9:11
“But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation.”

1 Cor 6:19
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”
