Let’s all take a minute to count on one hand how many times our faith has led us into a dry and arid place instead of a vacation by the sea. What’s that you say? Are you going to need to borrow someone else’s hands and feet to count them all? I get it. I’m with you, and I’m sure many others reading this right now are too! What fantastic stories we could tell each other around a campfire on a starry night!
Now let’s remember how near God was to us when His Spirit pulled us away from our comforts and into the wild. Let’s remember all of the things we learned and the ways our faith became a deeper reality and not simply a nice concept that good people put into practice.
We are always on God’s mind. It’s why His Word says that He jealous for us. He wants our attention. He will do whatever it takes, and He will take us wherever we need to go so we can see His face more clearly and follow His heart more closely. Then, like two best friends or lovers sitting around a campfire in the wilderness, telling stories and gazing at the stars, we will know without a doubt that He sees us, hears us, and is committed to being with us.
When we give God our full attention, we can be assured that we will receive a more magnificent revelation of His goodness in Christ as she shows us His glory and His kindness. In this way, He leads us to want better things and more of Himself.
Today, I have a fun story to share with you to kick off this month’s #bravethewilderness spiritual training. In just under 7 minutes, I promise you will have a clearer picture of how close God wants to be to us, even when we lose our cool in a spiritually dry and desolate season.
