Are you living in the wilderness of Sin?
Num 33:11 And they removed from the Red sea, and encamped in the wilderness of Sin.
Sin, brings separation from God: Like a desert is a dry and weary place because there is no water, so our lives, become dry, meaningless, and void of purpose, passion, and power, when we find ourselves in the wilderness of Sin. Weariness, that no amount of sleep, recreation, internet, travel or hobbies will refresh. That emptiness that cries out in the midnight hour: ‘Is this all there is?
There must be more to this life!”
There is more!
His name is Jesus, King of all Kings, and Lord of all Lords! The rock of our salvation!
Isa 32:2 And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.
First, you must come to Him, the eternal rock, and discover how you too, can become a rock of stability for others in this hurting world.
What is your pet sin? Sure it gave you pleasure for a season, they all do. Yet, the season ends and you find yourself alone, devoid of the life of God, with only one safe place left to go. The cross, the place where God became sin, that we could find mercy.
Number 33:12 And they took their journey out of the wilderness of Sin,
When you are ready to leave the wilderness, come on home to Jesus, and find life, love, and purpose again.
‘Father, I’m tired of playing with sin. It is time to leave it, today. So I come to you Lord Jesus, and give you my heart, my pain, my filth, and ask you to forgive me, and cleanse me of my mess. I choose You, Lord. I place You in charge of my life, and choose YOU, Your way. Lead me Lord, and show me how to walk with You, and follow Your lead, today, and every day Lord Jesus, Amen’
