His Ways... Day 6... Suzy Gerber

Today's devotion... written by Suzy Gerber... is from Exodus 13:17-18a:

"17 When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country, though that was shorter. For God said, "If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt." 18 So God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea."

Suzy does a great job of pointing out that some times, God leads us through the difficult things rather than the easy things for a specific reason. She shares some of her and Steve's story.

It's a good reminder. The tough part is the questioning in the midst of the journey. It was always easier to stand on the other side and think "Wow... God DID that." And that is incredible. But it can be insanely frustrating to walk through the "wilderness" having no idea where you are going.

If that's you... I hope and pray that you keep following God... keep trusting Him... and allowing Him to lead you where he wants you to go.
