“And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses,
Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.”
I will speak the truth:
“I am much discouraged because of the way.”
I am not speaking against God, but I do wonder why He has brought me to this place to die?
There is no life, no praise, the bread I am fed has no power to transform, to cause growth.
There is no one who understands or cares to seek Your face, to realize change.
There are moments, fleeting, elusive, just fragments, pieces, a glimpse of victory.
Followed closely by defeat.
The war is in the heavenlies, the battle is in my mind. I should overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony.
I’m do not… “The Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.”
Help me, Lord, to overcome: “Where is the Lord God of Elijah?” I need you now, today…. Amen
