Midweek Morsel: God Leads Us Through the Desert


“he led them like sheep through the desert. He guided them safely, so they were unafraid;” Psalm 78:52b-53a

If any of us are currently plodding our way through an emotional or spiritual desert, we can take comfort in the verses above from Psalm 78. Why? They tell us we’re not alone.

God is with us in the desert. And he’s not only with us, but he’s leading us through it.

The desert can be a lonely place of desperation, but oh the comfort of knowing we’re not walking those brutal, arid paths alone. Our God is guiding us and keeping us safe.

So if we find ourselves in a desert place today, let’s keep our eyes on our Guide. Let’s hold tight to his hand. If we do, we’ll have no reason to fear. He’s got us. Even in the desert.

In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,” Deuteronomy 32:10

  1. These have been desert days for me; how grateful I am for the Lord’s companionship with every step.
