Sukkot: The Wilderness Of Life Or Death

Tonight I brought a message titled “Sukkot: The Wilderness Of Life Or Death” at Church of the Living Word in North Hills, California.

Sukkot is a time to remember what God did for the children of Israel in the wilderness. It was a place of preparation and a precursor for entering into the Promised Land. They were transformed out of slavery and into a nation of people who must learn how to live in His presence. Their dependency on God was a matter of life and death; they could not survive without His provision and leading.

God is driven to do good for us and to fulfill His Word over us. As it was with the Israelites, our wilderness experience of life or death contains all that is needed to prepare us to receive the new day that God wants to bring us into.

In this time of Sukkot, let our hearts return to an absolute dependency on Him. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. His presence is with us to guide us into the days of the Kingdom. In His presence, we will learn and become. We will know the truth and it will set us free, but we must be ready for Him to lead us in a way we have not walked before. Approach this Sukkot like none other.
