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.” So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea.
We always want things to be quick and easy but it never is. We live in a simple-minded complicated society.
Simple because people many people don’t get what’s going on around them.
complicated because they don’t really care to take notice of those items and those problems and situations until they affect the end result of their options.
Israel needed to be freed because they were free already. They only ended up in the situation because of no food not because they had no money no pin or place to live it was all due to the fact they were starving.
Truth be told they had sheep they had cattle they just didn’t have bread rice meal to make the staple foods the side dishes.
a lot of times we get desperate because of the side issues things we are looking for that go along with what we already have that we actually need to make a living so we end up in bondage to things to people.
There are no shortcuts Saints God is taking us the long way around, and and that long journey we will learn whether we have the strength or the stamina to continue on to the promised land.
Christ is the only shortcut there is but to get to him you have to go the long way.
