TOPIC: WHAT YOU NEED IN THE WILDERNESS (2)
TEXT: PSALMS 78:53 “And He led them on safely, so that they did not fear; But the sea overwhelmed their enemies…..”
You can be in the wilderness and still be in the centre of God’s will.
‘….He made His own people go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock… He led them on safely, so… they did not fear… ‘ (vs 52-53). In the wilderness you get to know God in a way you never knew Him before. So, what else did Israel need to survive in the wilderness?
FOOD! Someone calculated it would have taken about twenty-six wagonloads of food to feed that many Israelites every day. The problem is, there were no trains and no tracks but they had something much better—God! For forty years He delivered manna, ‘the perfect food’, to the doors of their tents. The supply was
according to each family’s individual need—and God never missed a day. So if the economy has you feeling anxious and wondering whether or not God can take care of you—this is the word for you today! God may not give you everything you want, but He will give you everything you need. The God we serve does not suffer from lack or limitation! The Psalmist said, ‘l have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging for bread’ (Psalms 37:25). The old country Preacher got it right when he said, ‘Where He leads me I will follow; what He feeds me I will swallow.’ Think of it: for forty years Israel never missed a meal or went without and their God is your God, so Put your trust in Him today and stop worrying!
