Getting through the wilderness

Give us each day our daily bread. Luke 11:3

How do you get through the wilderness? The wilderness you face might look like a mountain. It looks so big and intimidating that you wonder how you will ever conquer it.

In 1987 or family and business suffered a wilderness experience. Our business was heavily in debt with several lines of credit. The banking industry was tight with Savings and Loans going out of business similar to the circumstances 2008. The real estate market had collapsed and investors had lost heavily. We had signed a long-term lease to rent office space with 6 months free rent. The rent was now due and we did not have the cash flow to pay the rent. So the landlord called the total lease and wanted total payment for the entire 5-year lease. In addition to this a group of employees left our company and set up a competing business. Our revenue had instantly been cut by more than 70%. Our bank called our line of credit because the bank was being sold. We were in a cash crunch. The wilderness was dry, long, and at times hopeless; there seemed no way through this wilderness experience.

The purpose is to go through the wilderness into the Promised Land which is your purpose and destiny in Christ Jesus.

God has promised his daily bread. HE has promised to feed you and provide for you every day. HE is your daily bread. The Israelites in the desert received manna every day as their daily bread.

Yet he gave a command to the skies above and opened the doors of the heavens;
HE rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven.
Human beings ate the bread of angels; he sent them all the food they could eat. Psalm 78:23-25

The Israelites ate manna forty years, until they came to a land that was settled; they ate manna until they reached the border of Canaan. Exodus 16: 35. God provided for the Israelites in the wilderness.

When you have learned the lessons taught in the wilderness the manna will end. You will be moving into new territory filled with milk and honey. The purpose of the wilderness is to teach you and find out what is in your heart. Will you Trust the Lord and be faithful? Will you trust God no matter the circumstance? Will you complain and whine or have a thankful heart? God is looking at the condition of the heart. HE loves you and will never leave you nor forsake you.

You will get through the wilderness eating HIS daily bread. No matter what the circumstance or problem HIS PROMISES you can Trust.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
