Can You Hear Me Now?

I wonder if God has ever asked that question of us?  Can You Hear Me Now?

When you are in the desert, you hear from God.  Why?  The desert forces you to listen to God.
- When my marriage was in the desert, I heard from God.
- When my ministry was in the desert, I heard from God.
- When my church was in the desert, I heard from God.

I don't mean that I heard something that I thought was God.  I mean I heard from God loud and clear.

The desert was a place to receive revelation.

Deuteronomy 8:16 who fed you in the wilderness with manna that your fathers did not know, that he might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end.

Where did Moses receive his calling to go to Egypt?  The Desert
Where did Moses receive the Ten Commandments?  On a mountain in the desert
Where did Moses receive God's Law?  In the Desert
Where did Elijah hear the still small voice of God?  In the desert?
Where did John the Baptist preach about the coming Messiah?  In the desert?

If you find yourself having a desert experience, listen!  God is about to reveal something to you.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, help me to listen to your voice today.  AMEN
