A Wilderness Christian vs Resting In Jesus

Victory Over Depression Blog

Remember: After leaving Egypt, God only intended the Israelites to live in the wilderness for eleven days.  Instead, they alone chose to live in the wilderness 40 years.

How about you, brethren?  Are you currently living in the wilderness?  If yes, for how long?  Are you convinced that it is biw time to truly (and faithfully) enter God’s rest?

For Christ strongly desires to claim you as His inheritance; to live in you and communicate His love through you to a needy, lost world.  With an open heart, read very prayerfully the words of Jesus in Matthew 11:28-30 – “Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden…

For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalm 84:11

Small stuff 2.9.2016One time I was being my father’s chauffeur to a speaking engagement. We decided to stop for lunch at a favorite chain restaurant of ours. Rather than order my ‘usual’ I decided to try something different. It was close to Thanksgiving and I decided to try the daily special, a Turkey Omelet. I’ve always been an omelet fan and I like turkey. Seemed like a winning combination. It wasn’t. While the picture looked good and the presentation was good, something in the recipe made it virtually inedible for my taste buds.

I’m sure we’ve all run into situations like that. It may be food, a different route, a new piece of clothing, a relationship or any number of other things. From a distance it…
