Exodus Desert Wandering

The Lord God Almighty has major intentions for His people (Exodus 14)… The Israelite’s were brought out of slavery in Egypt, God in His grace leads them into the desert…curtailing all areas where there could have been war (with the intent that He knew His people might want to go back into Egypt (slavery) if they went through war zones)
