Mighty and Wonderful Father in Heaven and Saviour Divine Jesus
God redeems. When God redeem us, He take us out of the reach of troublesome situations, peoples, places, and bad circumstances’, because He knows our hearts (Exodus 13:17). He does this because He know that human being can easily get overwhelmed, confuse and afraid, which makes it difficult to hear His calling in difficult times. And just like the Israelites we all are human beings and are also exposed to the temptation of rejecting God’s helping hand.
There is a big difference between a life full of distress and life in the wilderness. The wilderness is a place and time in life to spiritual matureness in faith and complete trust in God. An online dictionary defines it as, wilderness is a locale for intense experiences—of stark need for food and water (manna and quails), of isolation (Elijah and the still small voice), of danger and divine deliverance (Hagar and Ishmael), of renewal, of encounters with God (Moses, the burning bush, the revelation of the divine name, Mount Sinai). God leads us into the wilderness to grow and mature our love and knowledge of His divine and everlasting mercy through Jesus our redeemer. Therefore, the wilderness is our school of life (Exodus 13:18).
He protects us all the way through, by day He walks ahead of us in the form of a cloud and in the night with a pillow of fire (Exodus 13:21-22). And though many of us are scared to places our all in Jesus and God’s hands, the truth is, no one die in the wilderness (Exodus 14:11). So, fear not, be still, let go fully and let Jesus and God take control of everything, because only so you will come to see that the mountains that are hard to climb today are no longer there tomorrow (Exodus 14:13).
Jesus has won your battle on the cross of calvary, receive your peace (Exodus 14:14).
Sing and praise Jesus for giving His life to clean us from our sins (Exodus 15:1-2).
Sing and praise God, our Father in Heaven, for giving us Jesus, His one and only (John 3:16).
