Genesis 1:1 says God created the heavens and the earth. That was the beginning of His creation. He created everything from the largest to the smallest. He created the gigantic universe and the smallest cells in us. He created us and has the best plans for each and every one of us. We have hope because He is still in control.
God does not lead you into wilderness to harm you. He leads you there to completely depend on Him. The dry places will bring you into a deeper intimacy with Him and you will no longer view Him as being far away. You will come to know Him in closeness and confidence. God always keeps His promises. He has the power to make them, and He has the power to fulfil them.
