Miracle in the Dessert

“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” (Psalm 121)

Did you ever feel that you’re aimlessly wondering through life without any direction? If so, God’s Word can provide much needed guidance and protection.

God provided this miraculous protection to Israel in October 1973, when the Egyptians and Syrians launched a surprise attack that has become to be known as the battle of Yom Kippur (Golan Heights) located at Israel’s and Syria’s border. Yom Kippur is one of the holiest days on the Jewish calendar because it celebrates a day of repentance, prayer and fasting. On the evening of the attack…it was a very dark and cloudy night. To be safe, the Israeli soldiers needed to cross the desert, but to their astonishment…they came upon a mind-field making it impossible to reach the other side. All of a sudden…a mighty wind began to blow across the desert exposing the bright moon. Needless to say, the soldiers all crossed the dessert safely. This incredible miracle is a wonderful reminder that if God’s children continuously follow Him…His Word becomes an ever-lasting light that can lead them to safety in difficult situations.
