Name the lies you have believed in your wilderness (last week) and ask God to reveal the truth of His heart and love for you in your wilderness.
“Moses spoke to the people and said:
“Now, Israel, hear the statutes and decrees
which I am teaching you to observe,
that you may live, and may enter in and take possession of the land
which the LORD, the God of your fathers, is giving you.
Therefore, I teach you the statutes and decrees
as the LORD, my God, has commanded me,
that you may observe them in the land you are entering to occupy.
Observe them carefully,
for thus will you give evidence
of your wisdom and intelligence to the nations,
who will hear of all these statutes and say,
‘This great nation is truly a wise and intelligent people.’
For what great nation is there
that has gods so close to it as the LORD, our God, is to us
whenever we call upon him?
Or what great nation has statutes and decrees
that are as just as this whole law
which I am setting before you today?
However, take care and be earnestly on your guard
not to forget the things which your own eyes have seen,
nor let them slip from your memory as long as you live,
but teach them to your children and to your children’s children.”
– Deut 4:1, 5-9
Remember a time when God was present and real in your life. Name how He was present and real. Know that these same characteristics of God are present in your life today.
Speak the truth of God’s character and His promises over your wilderness.
Protector and Provide
Mediator, giving us peace with God
Saviour, freeing us from the weight of sin
Comforter of our souls
- Gentle convictor
- To feed us with food for our souls
- To give light to our darkness
- To redeem and call us by name
- To never leave us or forsake us
- To lead us
- To comfort us
To remember a time when you saw and knew God to be with you
To build an Ebenezer (altar to God or a way of remembering His Promises and words He’s spoken)
We must constantly remind ourselves of Who God is, His Character, and the promises He has for us regardless of our season
Prayer for the week: Psalm 23
