“Surviving the Wilderness” – the ancient Israelites went through the Reed Sea … into the wilderness. Jesus went from the amazing experience of His baptism … into the wilderness. Sometimes it seems like we go from our experience of conversion, forgiveness & renewal in the Spirit … into the wilderness. Why? What does it mean? How do we get through it? Just because you’re in the wilderness doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you. God brings us into the wilderness – so that He can bring us out of it!
