August 31st Morning Devotionals With Pastor Alph Lukau (August 2018 LAST Morning Devotionals)
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). Submit your finances to Him, submit your health, submit your family and your career and He (God) will make every crooked way straight. Amen
There was a shorter route that the Israelites may have taken from Egypt to Canaan. However, God chose to lead them through a longer one which had a Sea, a desert, seemed impossible and, generally, was tougher.
To them, God’s choice of their route did not make sense to them, hence, they severely complained to the point of some urging Moses to take them back to Egypt.
This could be the case of some of us today. Our journey to our breakthrough may take a long route and we don’t have an idea why it is the case.
However, the Israelites did not know that God was preserving them because the war that was along the shorter route could have made them return to Egypt as written in Exodus 13:17.
After 40 years of believing in a promise that seemed far fetched, beyond their understanding and impossible they finally reached their promised land.
I want to speak encouragement to someone, right now, who feels like their wait has been long enough. I want you to trust what God allows as well as what He does not allow.
Read Hebrews 12:2: “Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished the race we’re in…”
