“If you always do things
the way you’ve always done them,
you’ll always be
where you are now.”
And so, change is often in order. Israel would have never considered going to a promised land if they weren’t first dissatisfied with their immediate surroundings and circumstances. God prepared them for change by increasing pressure in their slavery. He also brought in the positive aspect of change by promising them a new land. He gave them hope. Either pressure or hope can work to ready us for change. Pressure and hope together work almost to guarantee our agreement with God on the issue.
That was last night. Now this evening as I shared with a couple of the kids I was informed that a few years ago as Joanna was reading about the life of George Mueller she began to think it would be neat to live that way too. So do a couple of the other girls. Now they tell me they have been praying that Abba El would give us the opportunity to live our lives by faith in Him. My son Jonathan, is in India and doing just that very thing.
Psa 37:23 The steps of a man are ordered by יהוה, And He delights in his way.
Psa 37:24 Though he falls, he is not cast down, For יהוה is supporting his hand
Psa 37:25 I have been young, and now I am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Or his seed begging bread.
