“When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, “If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.” So God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea. The Israelites went up out of Egypt ready for battle.”
God alone knows our journey. He knows what lies in our path. Too often we think he has forgotten, we wonder why the hardship? God strengthens us for our journey. In that strengthening, he keeps us, he shows us the way time and time again when we listen, when we watch, when we follow. Keep watching, keep listening. enough for now.
