HE GOES BEFORE YOU





In a trackless desert, there are no road signs. There are no footprints to follow. There is only emptiness and silence. A harsh environment. But where you are right now is essential to where you are going.

The howling wind blows across the hot desert floor, so strongly at times that it can pit vehicle windshields and take the paint right off the body of a car. But do not let the blowing sand get in your eyes spiritually. Ask God to help you clearly see the reasons for your desert experience.


You are never alone in the desert. When Israel left Egypt for their Promised Land, God promised “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged” (Deuteronomy 31:8). God fulfilled this promise as they traveled to the border of their destiny the first time, and He continued to be faithful during the subsequent forty years of wilderness wandering.


In the time of your great loss, in the desert of your difficulties--God is with you. In fact, He goes before you showing you the way through the wilderness. He opens the way, and delivers you from the enemy:

He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness . And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left (Psalm 106:9-11)


Despite Israel's subsequent failures down through the years, God remained true to His promises. During the time of the prophets God repeatedly confirmed, "According to the word that I covenanted with you when ye came out of Egypt, so my spirit remaineth among you: fear ye not" (Haggai 2:5).


Even in times of difficulty caused by disobedience, God remained faithful:

And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction...thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it , when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. (Isaiah 30:20-21)


And to believers--going through wilderness experiences--Jesus confirms, "...I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world" (Matthew 28:20).

No matter the reason for your desert experience, you are not alone. He goes before you.



PRAYER:

My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
