Words of the Week – Your Wilderness Days Have Expired!

Scripture: Exodus 13:17-22, Isaiah 43:18-20 Exodus 13:18 – But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red Sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt. Isaiah 43:19 – Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. A wilderness is an uncultivated, uninhabited, and inhospitable region. It is a neglected or abandoned area of a garden or town; a position of disfavor. Don’t you worry.
