When you hear the mentioning of desert, what would you think of?
Scorching heat? Dryness? Sand and dust everywhere? Not a very comfortable feeling…
I believe it must be very tough to live in the desert, but for us tourists, we were like very excited and thrilled and in a hurry to take photos, but after that in a hurry to look for a cool shelter from the scorching sun, could not even stand a few minutes… the air-conditioner in the tour coach was such a luxury.
A classic Chinese song sings “my passion and love is like the fire burning up the entire desert”… feels like a very uncomfortable passion to me, haha!
But no matter how hot, dry or uncomfortable it is, the desert still has its uniqueness, beauty and usefulness…
At least it makes tourists from the tropical rainforests like us very happy and impressed!
I cannot imagine how the Israelites could wander and survive in the desert wilderness for forty years, how God protected and provided for them! God is indeed very faithful and very true!
So if God could take care of and bless more than a million of His people then in such a hostile environment, all the more He could do the same for you and I today!
Therefore, if you are currently in a very difficult and hopeless situation or condition, remember to come to God to rest and once again look upon His reality, faithfulness and greatness!
As long as you persevere in believing, He has promised to make a way in the desert and streams in the wilderness for you!
