"The whole Israelite community set out...on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had come out of Egypt."
God shows His people that the second month is not a God-forsaken time, and the wilderness doesn’t have to be a God-forsaken place. The Israelites looked and saw the glory of the Lord in a cloud. Just when we think God has abandoned us, He shows up to be with His grumbling people. Jesus knows what it’s like. One moment He was being baptized, and the very next verse He was in the wilderness being badgered by Satan.
That’s why we can trust God in our “second month” times. He’s there with us!
"DO NOT BE AFRAID OR TERRIFIED... FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD GOES WITH YOU; HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU."
