SEPTEMBER 8, 2013 – WILDERNESS WALKING – What is the longest walk that you have ever taken? Spiritually speaking, Moses took a forty year wilderness walk, and to the human eye it looked all messed up. He killed a man and fled to the hills! Then we have Joseph who spoke of things to come and he was cast into a pit by those closest to him (his brothers, the tribes of Israel). He was sold into slavery and was later sentenced to prison. These things look messed up to the human eye and they took place in about a twenty year span. Here’s what the human eye does not see – the intimate relationship that these two men had with their God! I guarantee you incredible moments happened to these men while they were alone with their God, as they each walked through their own wilderness. No one knows what is taking place in your wilderness, as you are walking with your God. It’s so important in this life that you listen to God.. If Joseph would have listened to his brothers he would have just lay down and died in that prison cell, but Joseph knew something that his brothers did not understand – his own intimate relationship with his LORD! Jeremiah 1:5 ”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”(NKJ)
