God didn't bring you this far to leave you now

God brought his people out of slavery in Egypt.

  • While pursued by an enemy too strong for them, their progress was halted by the Red Sea. They thought they were going to die. So God parted the waters, allowing them to cross on dry ground. Their enemies were killed when they tried to follow suit.

  • Then they went 3 days without water. When they did find water it wasn't fit to drink.  So the Lord showed Moses a tree that would make the water safe to drink.

  • The nation of Israel was in the wilderness without enough food to eat. They thought they would die. So God rained bread out of heaven.

  • Again, the people were without water. And again they thought they were going to die. So God told Moses to strike a rock with his staff. When he did water gushed from the rock. 

Sound familiar? Life is filled with trouble. That doesn't mean that you're out of God's protection and care. Every new trial is an opportunity to trust and obey God. He'll never fail you.
