Author Walter M. Brown Jr. describes the wilderness as an inner feeling of barrenness. Through the spiritual direction in Why the Wilderness?, he hopes to help you better understand your own desolate times by seeing how God assisted him through his own.
God allows - and sometimes even plans - your personal wildernesses to mature you for life and ministry. Once understood, this process can help immunize you against these experiences. Brown provides advice on how to overcome "wildernesses" of rejection, silence, and continually changing circumstances. He guides you in the quest to rise to what God intends for you, to better understand the connection between hope and faith, to address and overcome your secret fears, and to bring to light your areas of personal darkness. Also included is a 40-day devotional guide, complete with poems, questions, and reflections.
Negotiated wildernesses are important to your spiritual growth and your fulfillment as children of God. One thing is for certain - until we address and venture through the wildernesses in our lives, the angels cannot come!
