40 yrs..... 40 days ... Comparisons Deuteronomy 29:2-5 2 Moses summoned all the Israelites and said to them: Your eyes have seen all that the LORD did in Egypt to Pharaoh, to all his officials and to all his land. 3 With your own eyes you saw those great trials, those miraculous signs and great wonders. 4 But to this day the LORD has not given you a mind that understands or eyes that see or ears that hear. 5 During the forty years that I led you through the desert, your clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on your feet. What does that tell you about the God we serve? The children of Israel were 40 years wandering in the desert and just think .....their clothes never wore out and their sandals never wore off their feet . What a miracle !!!! OUr God shall supply all our need according to His riches in glory . This also tells us that our God will sustain us through our wilderness ..... whether it be financial , spiritual , emotional or physical . Then one day as we hang on to God and are at the very edge of our wilderness , a breakthrough and miracle will come .... not in our timing but God's time God is willing and able to see us through whatever wilderness we are going through .
