The wilderness becomes a lush pasture . . .
The grasslands of the wilderness becomes a lush pasture.
Even a wilderness place can become a place where you can be fed and nurtured. Why? Because I AM with you, My Presence with you makes even the driest wilderness lush. How? Because like I've told you, in My Presence is fullness of joy; (Ps 16:11) You come sweeping in from the desert on the arm of your Beloved. (Song of Solomon 8:5)
It is in the desert that you find Me to be all you need and more. I carry you through the wilderness as a Father carries his son close to His heart. (Deut 1:31)I provide for you in the wilderness, manna, water, quail, clothes and shoes that don't wear out. Dependence on Me is a beautiful thing and it oftentimes happens in the wilderness. The poor in spirit find the Kingdom of God. Rejoice in your wilderness because it is there that you will find Me. It is there I will show you who you are and whose you are. You will be tested but not to break you but to prove your character, just like happened with Jesus in the wilderness. Be one with Me and allow me to nurture you in your wilderness.
