    The WILDERNESS

    by Steven Hill


    Many feel that a lack of trusted leadership to relate to, a lack of

    any community or movement to identify with, a lack of miracle in

    provision or healing would be evidence of their being in a wilderness.


    The children of Israel had an anointed, powerful leader and they were

    still in the wilderness. They were part of a great movement and

    still in the wilderness. They lived by supernatural provision and

    miracle but were still in the wilderness.



    Star leadership, miracles and multitudes are not proof that you are

    in the promised land.

    They may be proof that you are still in the wilderness of immaturity

    and codependency.


    Jesus went into the wilderness alone to fast and pray. Maybe the

    true purpose of the wilderness is to wean us from our addiction to

    the approval of others, our addiction to the sensational, our

    addiction to equating numbers with success? Maybe the true purpose

    is for us to connect with Jesus alone? To settle our needs in God so

    that we can freely give to others?


    When the children of Israel reached the promised land they dispersed

    to their own portion and each had to begin to take responsibility for

    their own lives, to manage their own affairs and to provide for

    themselves. They could no longer live by Moses and miracle.


    You may feel alone and isolated...

    That may be your promised land...

    That may be the place you fully engage with Jesus.

    Although it may feel like a wilderness, it is not only a good place.

    It is the best of places!


    -Steven Hill,


    NOTE FROM Lou:

    It is not where you are at, but it is who you are with. If you are following Jesus everything will be OK.
