Difficult or painful circumstances are not a thing anyone ever desires to go through, but in those moments we can learn God’s presence in the most amazing ways! Like the Exodus from Egypt, God does not draw us into the desert places to abandon us. He draws us into the desert places to reveal Himself to us as we go with Him to our place of promise! His presence and provision on the journey is where we get to become very familiar with Him Himself and learn how faithful He is. The rain is His provision. The challenge is the desert conditions. Our faith and trust connect us to the Provider!
