God Speaks To Us In The Wilderness…

Have you ever thought about why… we go through…WILDERNESS… experiences?

Could it be…. He takes us to the Wilderness to speak to us?… could it be that God takes us there… because we have too many distractions… our desert or wilderness experiences… tend to remove all distractions… so that God can speak to us…

God… took Moses to the Wilderness… and spoke to him through a burning bush….He spoke to Elijah… through the STILL…SMALL…VOICE….

If… we are seeking God and really want to hear his voice we need to go to the wilderness….

After 70 years of Babylonian captivity…Jeremiah 29:11… For I know the thoughts that I think toward you…says the Lord… thoughts of peace and not of evil... to give you a future and a hope…

Vs-12-14.… Then you will call upon me… and go and pray to me… and I will listen to you… and you will seek me and find me…when you search for me…. with all your heart…I will be found by you says the Lord.. and I will bring you back from your captivity…I will gather you from all the nations… from all the places… where I have driven you…says the Lord…and I will bring you to the place… from which I caused you to be carried away…

Further Comments: Wilderness can come on a personal level… or a National level…History… especially Ancient Hebrew History… shows that God often took his chosen people…to and through the desert or the wilderness…. if their Disobedience was extreme… he would allow a whole generation to pass away… in order to work with a new generation…

Our God is a jealous God… though it may seem inconvenient…or troublesome…. or unfair…. God always wants what’s best for us… but we are a stiff-necked peculiar people….

* With our divided Nation… socially.. politically…culturally… spiritually… I believe we need to draw closer and trust God…. all conflicts of prejudice and pride… and one color of skin… of a belief that one race… is superior and should control the others… is offensive to God…

We need a change of SPIRIT… we need to quit looking at the outward appearance of things… and realize that the underpinnings of all the above-mentioned… are Spiritual in nature… we struggle not against flesh and blood… but against dark Forces… Dominion’s…strongholds… entities… spiritual wickedness…in high places… that manifest through……….PEOPLE…. we need to develop our discernment skills… out of the abundance of the heart… the mouth speaks… people’s words will reveal what’s in their hearts…
