“Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.”
The LORD always allows what’s best for us, meaning we may have to go the long way! We always want short and easy, but long and difficult is often what happens. So just watch for the hand of the LORD and know He is right there with you.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways, says the LORD.” Isaiah 55:8
While we maybe going the long way, we get to look to the LORD to guide and direct. This way we get to witness how amazing He is, and give Him all the glory!
“God is my strength and power, And He makes my way perfect.”
2 Samuel 22:33
Today you maybe thinking the situation your going through is to long and too hard, but rejoice because the LORD maybe saving you from longer and harder! Also a long difficult journey puts us in a position of more time with the LORD and to see His awesomeness! Have a blessed day! Shavua Tov (have a good week).
