Deuteronomy 1:18 " And I command you at that time all the things which ye should do."

(1:19) And when we departed from Ho-reb, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the amorites, as the Lord our God commanded us and we came to Kadeshbarnea"

(1:20) And I said unto you, ye are come unto the mountain of the Amorites, which the Lord our God doth give unto us."

(1:21) Behold, the Lord thy God hath set the Land before thee; go up and posess it, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged."

Today I want to tell you all: Fear not, neither be discouraged, Because the Storm is over…

Now as we look upon this passage of scripture together and read the words of Moses in this the first chapter of the fifth book of Moses known as Deuteronomy which is interpreted to mean the second Law or the section edition of the Law…

Called the second law because not to amend the Law that was given to Moses but for additional direction God gave his people when they were in need.

Yes, the God’s people were in need

You see, at this time Israel had completed nearly forty years of wilderness wandering…

IN almost nomadic likes motion…

The Children of God moved through trial and tribulation…

Through strife and conflict…

Through Good and bad…

Through it all… They spent nearly forty years and now…

Fear not and don’t be discouraged…

Tell somebody Fear not….

And Don’t be discouraged…

It’s gonna be all right…

After you were released from your shackles and as your wounds mended and as your eyes were opened and you looked forward to your journey toward freedom…

If you had some idea that you would be walking for the next forty years in an environment described as a wilderness…

And environment described as great and terrible…

A place that you knew it was going to get very tough before it was going to get better…

If you can place yourself in those shoes for a moment…

If you place your mind in that situation for a moment…

You would be thinking like I’m thinking in that these folks new at least three things when they started…

They knew we where going to: one!

1. See a storms or obstacles in our future…That

2. Sooner or later they were going to be in the middle of that storm we saw from far off…And

3. The only way out of this storm was going to be through the power of God…

So they knew they were going to see some storms… They knew this was not going to be easy…

God has promised me something over here… But right now… I am still over here…

And this journey I am about to take…

This expedition we are about to embark upon…

This trip we are going to take..

Is not going to be easy…

It’s not easy because although I have faith…
