How Much Longer?!?!?!

When Pharoah let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, ‘If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt’ Exodus 13:17 I have been told it could have been a ten day journey at the most, leaving Egypt and heading to the Promised Land.  But it ended up taking 40 years.

Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:25-27 I could be a professional worrier. I used to have an odd believe that crept … Continue reading Do Not Worry – No, Really Do Not Worry
