Ministry Moment with Michelle:
Is there anybody other than me who feels like you’re in the wilderness? You feel like you’re going through a storm? There are distractions everywhere. It’s just the beginning of a new year. We’ve got eleven more months before we cross over to another new year. I want to pause to send you encouragement by letting you know that God will not send you to it, if He doesn’t plan to bring you through it.
Know that there is a brighter day on the other side, but we’ve got to get through the wilderness. Like Jesus in Mark 1:12-13. After being baptized by John the Baptist, immediately He was driven into the wilderness by the Spirit. He was in the wilderness for 40 days. He was tempted by Satan and was with wild animals, AND the bible says, “the angels were ministering to him.” It was AFTER this that His ministry began. He had to go through the wilderness first.
Be encouraged. Know that there is something on the other side. Trust in Jesus. Get through your wilderness, whatever it may be. God is with you. Look for the angels.
