Dear Tabernacle Family,
When you are 17 years old, there’s few things more satisfying than driving a car with a full tank of gas. There was one specific night I was enjoying this glorious occasion. As I drove off from the gas station, I lightheartedly asked the Lord, “Why can’t You keep my tank full? If my tank stay full, I will never have to worry about where I drive again.”
His response had shocked me.
Would you trust me to do it if the car were on empty?
So often I substitute safety with my salvation. When we’re taken care of and feel alright, we can become dependent on what we have already received. The issue with that is that there’s always so much more.
I believe that God pushes us into the wilderness not to run us dry but rather to depend on the one thing that never runs dry. The less we have to work with the more we have to rely on God.
I can set parameters in my life that make me feel like everything is okay but, as one who depends on God, nothing can steal who I am.
Welcome to the Wild,
