He invites you to leave the world and join Him on an adventure, to ride with Him.
 Isa 48:20-22  My people, leave Babylon! My people, run from the Chaldeans! Tell the news with joy. Spread the news around the world. Tell them, "The LORD rescued his servant Jacob." They never got thirsty as he led them through the desert, because he made water flow from a rock. He split the rock, and water flowed out. But the LORD also said, "There is no peace for evil people."  

Isaiah 32 talks of a different desert – the desert where His Spirit reigns
15-18  “This will continue until God gives us his Spirit from above. Then the desert will become rich farmland and the farmland will be like thick forests. 
That is, what is now a desert will be filled with right decisions, and what is now a farmland will be filled with justice. That justice will bring peace and safety forever. My people will be safe in their homes and in their calm, peaceful fields.”

Isaiah 43:18-21  “So don't remember what happened in earlier times. Don't think about what happened a long time ago, because I am doing something new! Now you will grow like a new plant. Surely you know this is true. I will even make a road in the desert, and rivers will flow through that dry land.  The wild animals will thank me. The large animals and birds will honor me when I put water in the desert and make rivers flow through that dry land. I will do this to give water to my chosen people. I made them, and they will sing songs of praise to me”. 

Psalm 105:37-45     “He led his people out of Egypt. They were carrying gold and silver, and none of them stumbled or fell behind. Egypt was happy to see His people go, because they were afraid of them. 
The Lord spread out his cloud like a blanket. He used his column of fire to give his people light at night. 
They asked for food, and he sent them quail. He also gave them plenty of bread from heaven.  He split the rock, and water came bubbling out. A river began flowing in the desert!  The Lord remembered his holy promise that he had made to his servant Abraham.  He brought his people out of Egypt. They came out rejoicing and singing their happy songs!  Then he gave his people the lands of other nations. His people got what others had worked for.  He did this so that his people would obey his laws and follow his teachings. Praise the LORD! “

His Promise to Josua is also His promise to you:

Jos 1:5-9  “Just as I was with Moses, I will be with you. No one will be able to stop you all your life. I will not abandon you. I will never leave you. 
"Joshua, you must be strong and brave! You must lead these people so that they can take their land. I promised their fathers that I would give them this land. 
But you must be strong and brave about obeying the commands my servant Moses gave you. If you follow his teachings exactly, you will be successful in everything you do.“
Jos 1:8  “Always remember what is written in that book of law. Speak about that book and study it day and night. Then you can be sure to obey what is written there. If you do this, you will be wise and successful in everything you do.  Remember, I commanded you to be strong and brave. Don't be afraid, because the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." 

Psalm 107:1-43  “Praise the LORD, because he is good! His faithful love will last forever! 
Everyone the LORD has saved should repeat that word of thanks. Praise him, all who have been rescued from the enemy.  He gathered his people together from many different countries. He brought them from east and west, north and south. 
Some of them wandered in the dry desert. They were looking for a place to live, but they could not find a city.  They were hungry and thirsty and growing weak.  Then they called to the LORD for help, and he saved them from their troubles.  He led them straight to the city where they would live. 
Thank the LORD for his faithful love and for the amazing things he does for people. 
He satisfies those who are thirsty. He fills those who are hungry with good things. 
Some of God's people were prisoners, locked behind bars in dark prisons. 
That was because they had fought against what God said. They refused to listen to the advice of God Most High. 
God made life hard for those people because of what they did. They stumbled and fell, and there was no one to help them. 
They were in trouble, so they called to the LORD for help, and he saved them from their troubles. 
He took them out of their dark prisons. He broke the ropes that held them. 
Thank the LORD for his faithful love and for the amazing things he does for people. 
He breaks down their bronze gates. He shatters their iron bars. 
Some people became fools and turned against God, and they suffered for the evil they did. 
They became so sick that they refused to eat, so they almost died. 
They were in trouble, so they called to the LORD for help, and he saved them from their troubles. 
He gave the command and healed them, so they were saved from the grave. 
Thank the LORD for his faithful love and for the amazing things he does for people. 
Offer sacrifices of thanks to him. Sing with joy about all that he has done. 
Some sailed the sea in ships. Their work carried them across the water. 
They saw what the LORD can do. They saw the amazing things he did at sea. 
He gave the command, and a strong wind began to blow. The waves became higher and higher. 
The waves lifted them high into the sky and dropped them into the deep sea. The storm was so dangerous that the men lost their courage. 
They were stumbling and falling like someone who is drunk. Their skill as sailors was useless. 
They were in trouble, so they called to the LORD for help, and he saved them from their troubles. 
He stopped the storm and calmed the waves. 
The sailors were happy that the sea became calm, and he led them safely to where they wanted to go. 
Thank the LORD for his faithful love and for the amazing things he does for people. 
Praise God in the great assembly. Praise him when the older leaders meet together. 
He changed rivers into a desert. He stopped springs from flowing. 
He made the fertile land become salty, because the people living there did such evil things. 
He changed the desert into a land with pools of water. He caused springs to flow from dry ground. 
He led the hungry to that good land, and they built a city to live in. 
They planted seeds in their fields and grapes in their vineyards, and they had a good harvest. 
God blessed them with many children and plenty of animals. 
But because of disaster and troubles, their families became small and weak. 
God shames even great leaders and makes them wander through empty deserts. 
But he rescues the poor from their misery. He makes their families large like flocks of sheep. 
Good people see this and are happy. But the wicked see it and don't know what to say. 
Whoever is wise will remember these things and begin to understand the LORD'S faithful love.
