We are a purpose driven people. If we know the reason for the season we find it easier to endure.
The wilderness is a custom made spiritual school – with courses tailored to our individual needs!
As Moses made His way in the wilderness He found himself at the mountain of the Lord. This is where the school of fire starts.“NOW MOSES came to Sinai, the mountain of God.” Exodus 3:1
At the time Moses did not know that this was the mountain of the Lord. He did not know that being in the wilderness at this time was a Divine appointment – a life changing, life altering moment.
And so, is your wilderness season. God is leading you to His mountain. He wants to expose the lies and impart the truth of your wilderness journey. He wants to teach You His ways and He wants to teach you about your journey. He wants to show you the way out. He wants to equip you. He wants to open your eyes to see as you have never seen before. He meets you at the burning bush! Here, you meet your Teachers – Yeshua as the Angel of the Lord (the manifest Presence of God) and the Holy Spirit as fire.
In the wilderness school you get to study:
God introduced Himself, He calls you by your name and teaches you the school rules and dress code. All of this is different from what you are used to.
“God said, take off your shoes this is holy ground.” Ex 3:5
The Teacher starts by telling you about your journey… and all this time you thought you were alone out there.
“And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of My people; for I know their sorrows and sufferings and trials. And I have come down to deliver them.
God my Defender
God introduces Himself as your Defender. He tells you the way forward. His master roadmap to move on!
In order to deliver us He needs to take us through the wilderness. The wilderness is not your final destination.
It is on route to a land of promise; supply and rest.
TRUST ME I KNOW THE WAY.
“God said, I will surely be with you; I AM WHO I AM and WHAT I AM, and I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE” Ex 3:12,14
You see only after a fire encounter with God are we able to walk on! The fire enables us to see as He sees. It enables us to believe and trust and follow! This fire is found in the wilderness – at the mountain of the Lord.
Father, please lead me to Your mountain. Please take me by the hand and bring me to Your school of fire. Baptize me with fire – change the way I see! I want to see as You see. I want to follow where You lead. I want to know You as my Deliverer and Defender – the One who knows the way. Thank you that You never stop pursuing us – even when we are feeling alone, hopeless and abandoned in the wilderness.
Today. I pause in Your Fiery Presence and tomorrow – I walk on. Hand-in-hand with Him who WILL take me through the wilderness.
Thank You for meeting me in this place! I choose to embrace your Fire!
