Past Promises Will Prevail In Spite of Present Problems”


Lesson Focus: The people of Israel tested God’s patience, and He in turn tested their endurance and faithfulness. Though the people failed many times, God showed His own faithfulness by His constant presence leading the way: through a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.

Main question: Why would we need to be reminded that God’s past promises will prevail in spite of present problems?
