THE RIVER OF LIFE
"For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of the valleys and hills." Deuteronomy 8:7
God delivered His people Israel from the hard bondage and slavery of Egypt, a type and shadow of the world. His plan was to deliver them and bring them into a land flowing with milk and honey, a fruitful land where they would never hunger or thirst.
Great miracles and supernatural power delivered the children of Israel and brought them down to the Red Sea, only to shake with fear, doubt and unbelief that they were going to die by the hands of the Egyptian armies. At the last minute, God split the sea and they crossed over on dry land, their enemies vanquished!
Although God fed them with manna from Heaven and water from the Rock, they refused to believe even in the midst of all the miracles of provision! A fourteen-day journey took forty years and still they didn't enter the promised land because of their stubbornness and unbelief! Will you go in and possess God's land or remain in the desert?
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9
