May 4 Inspiration

From the Desk of Pastor Kyle Doebler

In addition to the online Philippians Bible Study (which you can find here), we are continuing to re-release study guides from Long Story Short, which takes you through the overarching story of the Bible day-by-day.  

In this week’s guide, we’re wandering with the Israelites through the desert. They complain over and over again, and yet God continues to be faithful to them and brings them to the promised land. The people are frustrated and impatient with the long journey, and so they become impatient with Moses and with God. 

Sound familiar? Change just a few words, and (to me, at least) quarantine feels a bit like wandering in the desert. The destination is known, but the path forward remains a mystery. But I take comfort in knowing that God is still leading us, just God’s presence in the pillar of fire led the Israelites to the promised land.   

I encourage you to read along with us and to find your own story in the story of Scripture.  

Grace & peace,
