People fear change. In biblical days, the Israelites feared leaving Egypt and their captors' tyranny, yet God had a plan. Through Moses, he helped free them from their slavery and gave them a land of their own.
‘But I will judge the nation that they serve,’ said God, ‘and after that they shall come out and worship me in this place.’ Acts 7:7
Many years later, Jesus came to free them from the captivity of their sin, but most feared the change in their religion and rejected him. They didn’t want to believe him even though he showed them signs that only God could do.
What is holding you back from trusting God completely? We must get beyond our fear, relax, and watch as God takes control of our destiny. We might have to spend a little time in the desert, but not very long. He has heard our prayers and cries for mercy, and he will answer them; give him time to work out the details and watch as things fall into place. Jesus loves us; he will never forsake us, that you can be sure. Shore up your faith and keep praying!
