How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved him in the desert!Psalm 78:40
I am not sure if any of you have ever lived in the desert. I have two times both being in Phoenix, Arizona. This is not the world's hottest, driest, or sandiest desert, but a desert never the less.
In the Bible we read of many times in the desert when people complained to God what they were going through. Things like, "why are you leaving us out here to die" and on the complaining went. Many of us in life may have our desert experiences or know of someone going through one whether this person is aware of it or not.
When things seem dry and you feel like, where is God, you do feel like you are in the middle of a desert. Doesn't God care? Where is he? Why can't He fix this? You may just want things to hurry along and get you to that refreshing spring of healing and peace. A desert experience may be when a person is doing their own thing and it is something God would not be pleased with. So if you are a prayer warrior for this individual, you continue to pray and have faith for God to walk them out of this desert experience and bring them to a spiritual healing oasis. God hears you and he cares.
PRAYER: Thank you Lord for the good and bad in life for it is in hard times that I grow. Give me courage to press on and not complain. In Jesus' name. Amen.
