Are You in Desert Places?

The Lord just spoke a word in season to my spirit and I would like to share it.  “There are some who have been lured into the desert by God Himself and these people are unaware.  They feel deserted, forsaken, and even believe that it is the devil. But I have allowed this season in order to speak comfort and to be gracious to you.”

Are you in such a place as this?  If so, just know that God has not forsaken you in that place where He has allowed you to be.  There is a purpose for the wilderness and desert experiences of our life.  Read this passage:

“I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.”  ISAIAH 41:18

“”Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her.”  HOSEA 2:14

Now the purpose for the desert season is so that others can see the miracles of God’s river being poured out into your life and understand that it is the Lord and nobody but the Lord that brought you out!  So this season is for your growth and character development and for others to witness it also and know who God is!

Blessings to you.  Stay encouraged!


When God is Silent

When God is silent, its not time to give in.  When the world is spinning out of control- only God knows how to show the way for each day, but the quietness is almost too burdensome to bear…..for it seems as if He is unaware of the pain and loneliness, the uncertainty, the fearful thinking that is taking place right here and now!

When God is silent- we must be content with what we heard in our spirit.  Yes, that word we received in the past that caused great joy.  That same word will cover every bit of despair, knowing that He really is there! 

When God is silent what can we do?  How can we go on?  We must know of His unfailing love for us, on this we must trust.  For in the test, though there may be silence, He is as close as our next breath.  He has not abandoned us.  He will manifest His presence…..and we will not only hear, but we will yet see the salvation of our Lord who is oh so near!
