If we are going to do anything for God, we are going to go through a wilderness experience. Well, really, as part of the human race, we are all going through the valleys of life anyway. However, It is how we handle those situations that determined whether or not we will receive an anointing of God as a result of the experience.
Last week, we talked about Psalm 23. In Psalm 23, David poetically expresses how the Lord leads us into green pastures, still waters which paints a pleasant picture. However, in the next verse, David says that “He restores our soul”. Something happened in between verses one and two.
All hell broke loose!
The Israelites went through the wilderness, Jesus went through the wilderness and so must we.
It is when we are in the wilderness, that our faith is tested.
If we stand in the face of whatever the devil has thrown at us and we “fear no evil”, but trust that the Lord will sustain us, then He will surly prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies.
How Do We Stand?
Paul the Apostle tells us how to stand in the day of evil. If we are going to overcome in the battle for our minds, then we must take heed to what he saying to us. I have never heard of so much talk about the breakdown of mental health. Do you know why? If one refuses to call upon the name of the Lord in the day of evil, then there is no other result for them to experience then to fall into the hands of the one who is causing the adversity in their lives.
And pray for me. Know that I am praying for you.
Jesus. That name that is above every name. And at that name, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord!
