Father wants to put fresh, new spiritual destinations in your heart, along with a compelling purpose for pursuing them. This is a time to be listening!‘
Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.’ (Isaiah 43:19)
The Hebrew word ‘wilderness’ means, ‘a vast open field where cattle are driven’, ‘uninhabited land’, or ‘large tracts of open land and pasture’.
The picture is of someone herding cattle like a drover and discovering uninhabited, vast plains of land that is virgin territory.
The thought is not that of dryness. Quite the opposite! ‘A road in the wilderness’ speaks of a place where there is an abundance of food for cattle—and settlers can come and prosper in a new land. The ‘wilderness’ speaks of new territory. Expansive new territory!
So if you feel as though you are facing a wilderness, be encouraged. The promise of God is that He will give you a ‘road’ that will cause that wilderness to become accessible and a place of great fruitfulness.
Love and God bless,
