Many times, our faith deteriorates as our circumstances deteriorate. When that happens, our faith is quickly overcome by fear, and the future looks dark. The apostle Peter experienced this, and he temporarily fled his faith in Jesus.
We all experience times of uncertainty, and those seasons are fraught with negative emotions. It’s like we’re wandering around, and we don’t know when we’ll find our way again. What should we do when the path is unclear and we feel stuck? Where should we turn for help? Israel’s wandering experience may give us a hint.
