Overview of the Book
Millions of Christians are
experiencing something they don’t understand. In the midst of
financial, relational, or medical difficulties, they feel that God is
far away. The Bible specifically tells us that every believer will
experience what has been called the wilderness. It also commands us to
abide in Christ and be fruitful or be cut off.
A Journey In The Wilderness – Becoming Fruitful In The Kingdom,
is a new book which explains God’s purpose for the Wilderness and
His warnings to us so we can avoid its pitfalls.
The wilderness is the place God prepared all the valiant men of the
Bible. Jesus, Moses, David, Paul, and Joseph and many others spent time
being prepared for their place of service to God. The wilderness is an
important and yet rarely taught on part of the Christian life. Some
believe that it is “not faith” to acknowledge that there
can be times, appointed by God, of unrelenting difficulty; but to deny
the wilderness as part of the Christian life is to put ones head in the
In 1 Corinthians 10, Paul warned the church about the pitfalls of the
wilderness and not to be surprised when they go through it. He used
Israel’s failings in the desert to warn them. A Journey In The
Wilderness will help today’s Christians to not lose sight of
their promise and destiny in the mire of mortgages, careers and daily
living. Every Christian has a destiny and for God the deal is STILL ON.
The wilderness process is an important principle of the Kingdom for
every believer to understand. Without understanding, it is easy to run
aground on apathy, unbelief, hopelessness and wrong priorities. A
Journey In The Wilderness gently brings understanding and meaning in a
big picture overview of the purposes and ways of God with His people.
Why do Christian go through difficulties and face trials which the Lord
could easily remove from their life, yet He doesn’t? Why does He
allow us to suffer? Can God be trusted? Paul warns us in 1 Corinthians
10 that this part of the Christian life will either make us bitter and
barren or faithful and fruitful. A Journey In The Wilderness answers
the “difficult questions”, and points out the pitfalls
which can shipwreck a Christian in their call to fulfill their destiny.
