In A Desert Land

The CB Daily Bible Verse today is Deuteronomy 32:10-11. I really love the imagery of this passage for I believe it aptly describes not only our own lostness before we came to Christ but also various situations or seasons we may experience as well. Who has not, at one time another felt like they were alone in a harsh and barren desert? That is why I am so thankful that God is not only the God of the fruitful plain. He is also the God of the desert. 

Though we may find ourselves in a desert land, an "empty, howling wasteland", from which there seems to be no escape, God is there and He does not passively stand by. Deuteronomy 32:10-11 tells us that God surrounds us, he guards us, like his most precious possession because that is exactly what we are. He hovers over us, protectively "spreading his wings" and covering us. 

We may not see the "food and water" which we so desperately need to sustain us but we must never forget that we have something far better. We are under the care and protection of Jehovah-Jireh. He is the God who sees and he is the God who provides, even in a lonely, dark and barren land.

I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in December 2007, a few months after I joined CB and went through treatment. Two years later, without any warning, a cerebral aneurysm ruptured when I was asleep. It is only by the grace of God that I not only survived but that I am able to type these words today. Though we may face trouble, we do not have to be victims of our circumstances, we can be victors over them through Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:35-39)
