Sometimes, we have to be severely hungry and thirsty to get over our idea of how things are supposed to be (i.e. look, smell, taste, etc.) or even just to cry out to The One. The wilderness/desert is a place of pain, desperation, and loneliness. However, with just a little bit of rain (The King’s Reign), the wilderness/desert can become a type of garden all its own where life not known by many exists and flourishes. Balance is necessary.
Noah along with all were in a type of wilderness for probably much more than 150 days; the Israelites wandered in the wilderness for 40+ years; John the Baptist lived in the wilderness; Jesus went through temptation in the wilderness; and so forth and back.
This page will be focused on lessons from the desert/wilderness. There are many guests, servers, workers, etc. that have been, are, and will be from this place in one fashion or another. The King has delegated what He has delegated for the Grand Event! We just have to keep moving and making our way to The Way!
Isaiah 32:15 – Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, And the fruitful field is counted as a forest.
Isaiah 40:3-5 – The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; Make straight in the desert A highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth; 5 The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
