Seeking Him Podcast

After Victory, the Desert

“I had just had a breakthrough with my mom and we got closer than ever, and then she had a stroke three months later. The timing was really amazing!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: That’s the kind of timing I see often repeated in the Scripture. After a great spiritual breakthrough, God’s people often found themselves facing a new trial. The book of Exodus tells us about the children of Israel at a place called Rephidim. There 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.

The next time you head into a prolonged, difficult situation, remember that God will never abandon you.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
