The Story – The Wandering
No one likes delays. I don’t expect the Israelites liked them either. When they left Egypt, they probably in a hurry to get to the promise land. . . this good land that God said was extremely fertile. . .describing it as a land flowing with milk and honey. So you would think take the most direct route. Shortest distance between two points is a strait line, right? Most direct route at that time. . . But God does not lead them that way. . .why?
A person in decent shape could hike it in 8 days. . .a person like me, hike it in 20. Yet we found out this week it took the children of Israel 40 years?
Lets find out why?
