“And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 16:1)
Today’s Morsel: One of the things about “Sin” is that it is everywhere. No matter how saved you may think that you are, you are going to have to go through the Wilderness of Sin. You are going to have to walk through Satan’s playground; this world. From the time that Jesus was baptized, He was led of the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by Satan (Luke 4:1-16); and we are no exception. Sin is like a wilderness. It will leave you barren, dry, and without hope and without Christ in your life. The children of Israel came into the wilderness of sin after they came out of Egypt (a type and shadow of the world), and the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness (Exodus 16:2). You see, when you are surrounded by “Sin” it’s going to make it hard for you to see what God is doing on your behalf. It’s confusing and like the noise of a battle, and you are right in the middle of it. You must walk by faith and not by sight in this world that you are now living in, it is the only way you will make it through the desert of “Sin”.
Sing: Let me walk with You, Jesus. Don’t ever lead me alone. For without You I could never, no never make heaven my home.
Thought For Today: Sin shall not have dominion over you.
