The Promised Land always lies on the other side of a wilderness. (Havelock Ellis, 19th-20th century British essayist)
The Bible’s Old Testament relates the saga of the People of God who wandered through the wilderness for 40 years to reach the Promised Land. Their story is one of suffering and sin but with the miraculous provision of God’s ultimate deliverance as promised. That historic journey is a lesson to us to be people who walk in faith and obedience, trusting him and his provision.
[God] provided for you so you would know that he is the Lord your God (Deuteronomy 29:6). And God will generously provide all you need (2 Corinthians 9:8).
