TOPIC: THE TEST
TEXT: EXODUS 13:17
“When Pharaoh finally let the people go, God did not lead them along the main road that runs through Philistine territory, even though that was the shortest route to the Promised Land. *LGod said, “If the people are faced with a battle, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.”
God knew they weren’t ready for warfare because they just came out of Egypt after 400 years, and they didn’t have a single weapon or have experience about war.
Sometimes, God keeps us from problems we are not aware of.
Because God knows what’s best for us, when we pray, we must have absolute trust in His love
Giving thanks to God is an expression of our faith & confidence in God.
