God Of Deserts
But he also turns deserts into pools of water, the dry land into springs of water. Springs nourish the life in the desert including you.so God gives it to u
I will make rivers flow among barren hills and springs of water run in the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water and the dry land into flowing springs.
1After this, Jesus crossed over to the far side of left alone e,g Jacob left alone(Genesis 32:24) Also Moses in the mountain to speak to God. 2A huge crowd kept following due to miracles done. 3Then Jesus climbed a hill and sat down with his disciples around him.You have to do it yourself and then God will give you utterance. 5Jesus soon saw a huge crowd of people coming to look for him. People will follow you.
6He was testing Philip, for he already knew what he was going to do. Go will make a way. 7Philip replied, “Even if we worked for months, we wouldn’t have enough moneya to feed them!” not by power zech4.6. 8Then Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up. 9“There’s a young boy here with five barley loaves and two fish. But what good is that with this huge crowd?”speak out in faith don’t doubt.
Number 7, we have to say that it is the number of perfection and completeness.god rested (God will take some small and mix it with another and get a perfect thing)
10“Tell everyone to sit down,” Jesus said. So they all sat down on the grassy slopes. Be still for god to work Psalm 46:10
He didn’t stop them from going into the desert. He didn’t keep them from the heat. But he did lighten the load. We all go through desert places in life, problems that should overwhelm us, giants that should defeat us, bad breaks. It should make us bitter.
11Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, And they all ate as much as they wanted. Hence we feel strength that we didn’t have courage to keep moving forward, grace to endure. We look back and think, how did I make it? Through the loss of my loved one? How did I overcome that sickness? How did I raise that child that was so difficult? It was God giving you grass in the desert, God making the hard places easier.
12After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted.” Without his grace, we would have gone under.
13So they picked up the pieces and filled twelve baskets with scraps left by the people who had eaten from the five barley loaves. Number 12 is actually a representation of authority and perfection. This number can also represent the church and faith in general.
I want to talk to you today about a way in the desert John 6.Without his grace, we would have gone under, that sickness would have defeated you. He didn’t stop the trouble, but he did keep the trouble from stopping you. You could have fallen apart.
But God made a way in the desert. he stepped in and lighten the load. That’s why that person showed up at just the right time to help you. It wasn’t a lucky break. It was a way in the desert. That’s why this Convid-19 hasn’t defeated you.
God hasn’t changed it all yet. You haven’t seen the promise come to pass. You still believe in for the healing, the promotion, the spouse. The good news is, while you’re waiting, God is making your hard places easier.
You may not be able to tell it, but if it wasn’t for the goodness of God. That trouble would have overwhelmed you without his mercy, that addiction would have defeated you no matter what you go through an illness, a divorce, a betrayal because you’re a child of the most high God.
You may be in a desert place now. The right attitude is. Lord, I want to thank you for the way u are making. E.g. Joseph. These people have done me wrong. He could have let his guard down and compromised. But there was a way in the desert. Joseph stayed faithful, loyal, committed. You don’t know how God is working in your life right now.
Where did you get the strength to withstand the temptation? How are you able to keep a good attitude when negative things have happened? How can you still be strong and do the right thing with these challenges you’re up against? It’s not just your will, your determination.
It’s God given you grass in the desert. He’s not letting that trouble overwhelm you. He’s not letting that bad break defeat you. The scripture says you’ll never face anything that you can’t handle. 1 Corinthians 10:13
Like Joseph, you may be in a desert place. You’re dealing with things that you never saw coming, people that did. A sickness is not improving. Your business went down. You don’t see how you can go on. God is about to make your hard places easier.
God is going to get you to where you’re supposed to be. The desert is not your destiny. The disappointment, the loss is not how your story ends. The desert is temporary. The trouble is temporary. The Depression, it’s only temporary. Joseph ended up the prime minister of Egypt. He came out of the desert into his promised land. We don’t like the desert, but the desert was necessary.
Without the opposition, without the betrayals, the disappointments, Joseph would have never made it to his destiny. And God won’t stop the desert. He never promised we wouldn’t have difficulties. But he did promise he’ll give make a way in the desert. He’ll make your hard places easier.
Now, quit telling yourself .I’ll never beat this cancer. I’ll never raise these children. This pandemic is going to ruin my business. You’re defeating yourself. Victory starts in our thinking.Joel 3:10 Try a different approach. Lord, thank you for the grass in the desert. Thank you. That I can do all things through. Christ, thank you.
David said, God makes me to lie down in green pastures. Psalm 23:2 You can be in a desert and God will create a green pasture. You know, God is still on the throne. You have grass in the desert while others are complaining, You have a song of praise. You’re expecting God’s favor. You’re declaring his promises. When I looked at my father, I didn’t see green pastures. All I saw was a desert.
You’re going to see the faithfulness of God. So he’s not limited by the economy, by your job, by the stock market. He owns it all. Keep your hope in him. You’re going to see abundance overflow, pressed down, shaken together, run over, Luke 6:38 . Sometimes we think when we get out of the desert, out of the barren place, then we’ll exhale. Then we’ll pursue our dreams.
But God is going to cause you to flourish in the desert. He’s going to make those hard places easier than you think. You may have difficult things coming against you now in your health, your finances, your family. It seems like it’s more than you can handle. Like this woman. It’s going to be easier than it looks.
You don’t know what God is up to that will tell you. You’ve seen your best days. You’ve been through too much. You’ll never get well, never meet the right person, never beat the addiction. Don’t believe those lies. God is already lined up. You’re Boaz is the right people. He’s already arranged the good brakes, the promotion, the healing, the favor.
He’s not going to just make the hard places easier, but he’s going to cause you to flourish in the desert, to prosper despite what you’ve been through. The reason you have strength to withstand the power to outlast the determination to try again is because God has something awesome in your future.
If you were done, he wouldn’t have created the grass in the desert if he wasn’t about to multiply what you have, do something that you’ve never seen. He wouldn’t have made the green pastures for you to lie down in the fact that you’re hearing this tells me that your future is much brighter than your past. Now, quit telling yourself this loss is too much for me.
I’ll never get past this breakup, this sickness, this trouble at work. It’s all a part of your destiny. Without the desert places, you can’t make it to your promised land. The question is, are you going to take hold of his strength? Are you going to do like Joseph, like Ruth and keep moving forward, being your best, knowing that God is in?
