Scripture: Numbers 6:22-27
“‘The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace,'”
Observation: In the desert the Lord will sustain you.
In the desert God will radiate light and direction, He will be kind to us and lead us to the promised land.
His face is not hidden but reflects his nature – Light.
He turns towards us and leads us thru improbable surroundings.
He guides by day and protects at night when we are helplessly sleeping.
He wants us to experience peace in chaos and an ever increasing hostile land that will not sustain us.
He is our sole sustainer. His children will not die in the desert.
Application: We are all wandering in this desert. We left the garden and have yet to make it to heaven, the promised land.
We are in the land between, a harsh sin-laden environment that is impossible to draw true sustenance from.
Yet, In the desert, only God can provide the essentials of life. We are his children, dearly loved and protected.
He asks only for obedience and trust.
Put God’s name on you, confess “Jesus is Lord!” and He will bless you as His child, in His family, in His kingdom.
