Imagine the scene. You’ve been wandering in the desert for as long as you’ve been alive. You’ve heard the story of how God parted the Red Sea so that your father’s generation could escape the Egyptians.
You’ve been told the promise of God: that your people, the Israelites, would be given the land of Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey.
You’ve heard all of this and more. But you’re still waiting to see the land of Canaan.
The thing is, in order to effectively pour myself into my relationships with God and others, and in order to deepen my commitments to the ministries in which I’m involved, I need to be feeling good. There’s nothing that sidelines me faster than a headache or stomachache.
