A flower blooming in the desert proves to the world that adversity, no matter how great, can be overcome. – Matshona Dhliwayo
Think of the wilderness as a place where there is no clear path or line of sight in order to move forward. It can be a place of confusion or entanglement. The wilderness is a place where untamed beasts and the wildlife roam.
Even when we cannot determine which way to go. The desert is dry, where there seems little or no hope. Your vision is blurred and where rivers have gone dry. You feel hopeless even within your own heart. A place where you are tired of trying to go even a step further. Do not let the wilderness keep you bound. My encouragement to you, is to look beyond the wilderness and past your obstacles and that God will open up your eyes to see what he has in store for you.
The desert does not stop God from creating a platform for you to excel There is no mountain that can block our God from doing the impossible.
When you trust God, he will make a clear path – even in the wilderness. Isaiah 43:19 declares, “Behold, I will do new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness.” God created the wilderness and he can create a new path for you. Trust his guidance and his wisdom.
Don’t allow any wilderness experience to distract or deter you, but rather focus on His Word. God will make a way where there seems to be no other way.
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19
