Exodus 13:17-18 NKJV
 Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, “Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.”
 So God led the people around by way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. And the children of Israel went up in orderly ranks out of the land of Egypt.
Exodus 13:20-22 NKJV
 So they took their journey from Succoth and camped in Etham at the edge of the wilderness.
 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.
 He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of fire by night from before the people.
Joshua 5:6 NKJV
 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people who were men of war, who came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they did not obey the voice of the LORD—to whom the LORD swore that He would not show them the land which the LORD had sworn to their fathers that He would give us, “a land flowing with milk and honey.
Mathew 4:1-11 NIV
 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.
 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple.
 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”
 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”
 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.
 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”
 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
James 4:7-8 NIV
 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
