Prophecy: God Had a Purpose for Your Journey Through the Wilderness

by | May 31, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

What a journey it has been for some of us in recent times. Many have been on a path that seems like the absolute roundabout course of direction.

“But God, I thought you were going to do this—this way. I didn’t expect my miracle and breakthrough to come about like this,” you might find yourself saying.

Although the way or form you have gotten to where you are was unlike anything you foresaw, it is still the time and correct path for crossing over into your promised land.

“We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” (Rom. 8:28).

The Lord does not desire for you to have gone through such warfare. But in this process (and for some of us it has been a rough road), He has worked good through it.

As I was studying the Bible about the Israelites’ journey through the wilderness before crossing over the Red Sea and escaping slavery, I stumbled upon these verses:

“Now when Pharaoh had let the people go, God did not lead them through the way of the land of the Philistines, although it was nearby. For God said, ‘Lest the people change their minds when they see war, and they return to Egypt.’ Therefore, God led the people around, through the way of the wilderness to the Red Sea, and the children of Israel went up prepared for war out of the land of Egypt” (Exod. 13:17-18).

Many commentaries point to the fact that, although the Israelites journey to get to that epic moment of crossing the Red Sea was the roundabout course, through the process they gained military order to better prepare them for facing Pharaoh and the Egyptians.

This roundabout journey you have gone through in pursuit of your own miracle has been the greatest training ground. You have learned tools of weaponry during this season that could only have been learned through the wilderness.

Don’t Look Back

The Lord spoke to me clearly that as we cross over into our promise and shift to the new, it is very important that we don’t look back but keep our eyes fixed firmly forward. By keeping our eyes fixed forward, we will gain momentum and not get setback by the discouragement and trauma from the wilderness season.

Look at the progress you have made! Celebrate what the Lord has done.

Part of stepping forward into God’s promise over our lives, is shifting our mindsets.

Thank you, Jesus, for what You have led me through. Thank You for where I am going. Thank You that I am gaining ground. I’m stepping forward. Hallelujah! {eoa}
