It so happened that after Pharoah released the people, God didn’t lead them by the road through the land of the philistines, which was the shortest route, for God thought, “If the people encounter war, they’ll change their minds and go back to Egypt.” -Exodus 13:17
Good morning people
It’s been a while. So much going on around here and it will unfold bit by bit soon. I just thought to drop by this morning to encourage someone.
As I was studying this morning I saw a scripture I probably have seen many times before but that just came alive to me just now.
God had just wrought a big victory for the Israelites. He just ended over 400 years of slavery and restored their wasted years loaded them with benefits and the wealth of the Egyptians. Victory at last!!!! They were all so excited. There was singing and dancing and rejoicing.
God knew that because the victory landed into their laps that they would be unprepared for greater battles ahead. So he took them the longer route to avoid war.
Sweetie does it seem like it’s taking too long? The longer route is the safer route. God knows there’s war in the path of the short cut. Can you handle war right now?
So what do we do?
God bless you darlings.
