Exodus 13:17-15:18

I decided on the first of the year to make Ecclesiastes 7:13, as it read in the NLT be my focal point this year. It reads: Notice the way God does things; then fall into line. Don't fight the ways of God, for who can straighten out what he has made crooked?

Because of that resolute, this year it seems that without even actively looking those key verses or ideas, finding out how God does things, I am drawn to His examples and so it is with the following verse,

When Pharaoh let the people go, God led them not by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was nearer; for God said, Lest the people change their purpose when they see war and return to Egypt. (Exodus 13:17 AMP)

So often, I fight against doing things God’s way because it doesn’t make sense, but God’s ways are not our ways. When it seems like that which I’m trying to escape from is breathing down my neck and I think I am about to fail because of some unknown sin or missed direction, and or even think God has left me, I am just being used as a set-up for God to defeat that which has threatened me and desires to take me back into captivity.

There are so many things in this reading that I’ve never really studied that can tell me, show me just how God does things so I can fall into line and I will try to study them throughout the day and post back tonight.

Grace and peace,
Ramona

Comments/Q.o.t.d: music: it's a funny thing because like you say, music can free you or there are songs that are too grown and teach wrong perceptions through songs. I still listen to some secular but my true thoughts, attention 90% of time is focused on Christ centered worship. Hopefully we are all a little more mindful what air waves we listen to and listen to words that build up not tear down. Amen!

I do not believe God tempts us. God is Holy and good. It is our own evil desires that lead to sin. James 1:;13-14. He does however leave us a way out of sin. Take the sword of the Spirit, turn away, and run.
