In today’s lesson of One in a Million, we learn about two miracles of God: deliverance and provision. We are reminded of that every wilderness journey has refreshment and we should anticipate and trust God during the journey. Sometimes the outcome is not the same outcome we desire, yet trust in God tells us it is God’s desire for us, His will. On page 64 in your workbook, you read about David’s own journey of anger and fear. In this lesson, Priscilla Shirer offers encouragement and solutions when you may feel disappointed in God.
Read this verse aloud Isaiah 61:3 NLT:
To all who mourn in Israel,
he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
festive praise instead of despair.
In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
that the Lord has planted for his own glory.
Then ask God specifically to give you a crown of beauty for your ashed, a joyous blessing instead of your mourning, festive praise instead of despair.
Priscilla Shirer Quotes
