    Thanks Jason.

    This is where the prosperity gospel falls down. We may be in wilderness financially or emotionally or otherwise, but often God can lead us there to bring us a greater blessing through knowing Him more deeply.

    Hey Bro,
    Wonderfully written piece, succinct and to the point!
    This is a battle that we all face, but when we bring this into the right perspective and look at it through the lens of the gospel, we find ourselves understanding that God quite often propels us into the desert place without an attitude of vengence or judgment. Thanks again, it is refreshing and biblical!

    Thank you for this wise reminder. It takes complete trust in our sovereign, wonderful God to actually cheerfully yield to being in the driest desert, yet believe with all your heart that you are loved and that God is incapable of doing anything but good … especially when your desert is more like 40 years, rather than 40 days. Just resting in His almighty hand – “Be still and KNOW that I am God.” His lovingkindness IS abundant and totally incomprehensible to this undeserving child.
