I assure you He has not abandoned you nor forsaken you. God is about to bust open a mighty work in your life if you will just be patient along the backside of your desert.
Having an open hand with a closed heart gets you nothing but an empty palm. God didn’t lead them into the wilderness to die. He led them there so they might have eternal life.
It’s not always going to be sunshine in our lives, but was always in the storms that we learned the best lessons about the hardest times and our true strength to endure them in Christ.
