After Victory, the Desert
Woman: So my mom and I were finally starting to connect! Our relationship was getting so much better. And then, just three months later, she had a stroke!”
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: After a great spiritual breakthrough, God’s people often find themselves facing a new trial. For example, the book of Exodus tells us about the children of Israel at a place called Rephidim. That’s where God told Moses to strike a rock, and water came out.
The people had witnessed a miracle! And then, almost the very next verse, they were off to the desert of Sinai.
God led them into the desert, and He was with them there. He’s with us, too, when we face dry times spiritually. That’s why your desert can actually become a place of blessing. There are aspects of God’s character, His heart, and His ways that we can’t see anywhere else but in the desert.
So the next time you head into a difficult situation, remember: God will never abandon you.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
