The Israelites miraculously crossed the Red Sea and were delivered from Egypt. This was their End Zone. It marked the end of being a nation of slaves. They spent 40 years wandering in a wilderness becoming the people God wanted them to be. This wilderness season is the neutral zone. They eventually made their way into the promise land...marking their New Beginning. The middle phase...the neutral zone...is probably the most significant part of transitioning properly. How you manage the neutral zone will determine whether you become bitter or better. This is the confusing, chaotic, in between state. It’s no man’s land. It’s the desert place where most people give up and throw in the towel. In the case of the children of Israel, this wilderness/neutral zone phase takes up most of the story. Their neutral zone was 40 years of desert wandering...BUT...It was in the desert that this population of slaves became a nation strong enough to invade and conquer Canaan.
