Waiting With God | A Look At The Israelites Complaining In The Wilderness

It’s hard to recognize the importance of something in the midst of the season we’re walking through. It’s hard to see the reason we had to journey through some of the places we’ve been to. Sometimes we find ourselves like the Israelites, wandering around the desert and the promised land seems so far away.  Day after grueling day they trekked on for forty years before they came to the place they had been promised.

Holding On To God’s Promises | A Look At The Israelites Not Entering The Promise Land

The Israelites are way into their desert journey toward the promised lands, they’ve faced battles, and witnessed His provision, and have seen the glory of God come to rest on Mount Sinai in Exodus 24. They’ve got some experience under their belt, so it’s little surprise when God gives the word to move on and enter the promised land.

The Story Of Naomi From The Bible

Empty is a journey, a walk, a season that proves everything that we’ve learned in the storm. Empty is a lonely, broken place. You’ve walked through a dry season for so long… you followed eager to be a part of what God was doing- but now you find your self used up, poured out, tired of fighting.

Important Lessons From Jairus’s Daughter In The Bible

We see a period. The end, no alternatives. No second chances, no do-over. No stops, no restarts, no going back. The little girl in Mark 5 is dead. No question mark, it was final. The last breath had been exhaled. Those that knew her were in mourning. To all, her story had ended- they didn’t know she’d forever live in the pages of our bibles, or that her story would impact people centuries later. All they knew is that this young girl was gone. Nothing they did could bring her back.

What We Can Learn From Naomi In The Bible When We Feel Empty

Have you ever left full, only to return empty? Maybe you followed God’s call, you journey out with Him excited and ready to do what He has put in your heart. Maybe God called you into ministry or missions, or maybe He called you into the unknown in your very own home. Perhaps God called you away from something, some people, some situations, a job. And now, now you find yourself exhausted, spent, used up, empty.
