Top 5 Fab Fabrics of the week! The Wilderness

And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. Matthew 3:17-4:1

This week I couldn’t help be inspired by the wilderness. To be honest I was once afraid of the wilderness. And if you don’t know what the wilderness is basically it’s where God leads a lot of His hero’s to. It’s not very comfortable but you have to go through it to get to the promised land. It’s basically a place where you see where you’re at with GOD. It’s a testing of the heart so to speak.

This week I’ve just had a bit of a revelation of the wilderness. If you know the story of the Hebrews coming out of Egypt then you know they spent 40 years on a 11 day journey all because they would grip, complain, Probably throw a few fists up at God. And God basically humbled them.

But I believe God did more than just humbled them. You see, they still had to face “giants” to gain their promised land. The wilderness is something we need to embrace and learn from. It’s a place where GOD strengthens you. My revelation was, that we shouldn’t be afraid of it, on the contrary we should try to appreciate it…

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, James 1:2

I know it sounds weird, but to be honest, I’ve heard accomplished entrepreneurs reminisce about the times when they were going, about the tough times and say those were one of the most exhilarating and most fulfilling times. Go figure? Others say, it always gets worse before you get your miracle. I know that to be true in labor, Lord help me.

What I’m saying is, no matter what trial you are going through, nor what wilderness you may find yourself in, that’s your opportunity to draw closer to GOD. To lean in and learn about what God is trying to work inside you. Have faith, because when you have faith that GOD is with you no matter what it may look like, you are that much closer to your promised land. God has equipped you with all you need. Give your doubts and insecurities to Him and be courageous. These are the times that you are being molded. These are the times that you see, what works and what doesn’t. Because with GOD by your side anything, and I mean anything is possible. Do you believe?

  1. It may seem like your problem is your spouse, your children, a co-worker, the traffic, the economy, your church … but actually, you might be wandering around in the wilderness, unable to find your promised land because your attitude stinks.
