The Purpose of the Desert Experience

The Purpose of the Desert Experience

“And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, even with joy and singing” (Isaiah 35:1-2).

Have you ever been in the desert? I’ve been in many deserts, both physically and spiritually. My husband likes to minister to people who live in the desert where there are miles and miles of sand. There are huge sand dunes with nothing else that the eye can see. Miles and miles of sand everywhere.

We were given a desert rose from North Africa that was forged under heat and pressure in that vast desert area. Even in the driest of situation, toughest of places, there is life. I cherish that special rose made out of rock and sand. It is so beautiful and so meaningful to me.

Many of us feel like we are in a desert. We feel isolated because we can’t go anywhere or see anyone, and every day seems endless with the threat of the coronavirus. 

God brings us into the desert in our spiritual life, often not because we are doing something wrong, but because He wants more of us. He wants our undivided attention. He may even take us out of a busy and fruitful time, and this may seem so inconvenient and unnecessary to the carnal mind. But always know this: your Father knows exactly what He is doing.

During those personal times in the desert you may feel like everything has shut down for you. You may not sense favor where you once did. You may feel that your relationships are more distant and may even feel that God has abandoned you. But I want to say to you, “Do not fear. God is in the desert. He is developing you into a rose.”

What are you leaning on for your support? Is it ministry, popularity, or money? God wants you to lean solely on His strength for your stability. He will make you strong in days when everything else is shaking. He did not cause this virus, but He is using it for our good. He is always strategic and purposeful in all that He does. God has set you apart for Himself in this season for a purpose.

A Breakthrough Prayer for Power in Prayer

A Breakthrough Prayer for Power in Prayer

Lord, teach me the power of intercession. Help me to devote myself to prayer and prioritize it in my life (Colossians 4:2). Help me to cultivate praise and thanksgiving on a daily basis. I want to raise my expectation of what You can do in and through my life. Raise my view of You. I want to discover Your supremacy and majesty in a greater way. I want to believe You for something bigger than myself. I choose to step out of my comfort zone. Increase my faith. Your Word says in Hebrews 11:6, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” I earnestly seek You Lord.

Teach me to focus on Your plans rather than my own needs when I pray. I want my prayers to be purpose-centered and focused on Your big plan. I choose to practice Your presence every day. Teach me to pray Your Word and wait upon You. I submit myself to Your authority in every area of my life. Teach me to be like Elijah who was a man of the Spirit and sought after You with his whole heart.

Lord, teach me to prayer journal on a regular basis so that I remember Your works and the things You have done in my life. Help me to process my thoughts and hear what You are saying to me. I want to meditate on Your faithfulness. Help me to give You extended periods of time. I want to see life from Your perspective. I want to ascend the heights in prayer. Help me to hear from You. I desperately want revival in my life. Do a deep work in my heart.

“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting” (Psalm 139:23-24). Forgive me for my sins. Remove any hindrances in me that would prevent personal revival. [Have a time of silence where you confess before God any sins that He reveals to your heart.]

I long for revival in the land but let it start with me. Change me and make me like You. Like John the Baptist I want to prepare the way for the Lord. I want to make straight paths for You (Mark 1:3). In Jesus’ name, amen.

Help me to ascend the heights in prayer. I want to touch heaven and change earth with my prayers. David said in Psalm 34:1-3, “I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the LORD; let us exalt his name together.” “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him” (Psalm 34:8). In Jesus’ name, amen.
