Have you been walking through a wilderness in your life? Youre in good company: Moses, David, Joseph, John the Baptist, the apostle Paul, and Jesus Himself all spent time in a wilderness or desert.
The wilderness can be described as a dry and thirsty land (Psalm 63:1); it can be a place of desolation and desperation. In Hebrew, however, we can find a secret hope that brings waters of refreshing to our soul. The Hebrew word for desert or wilderness is Midbar rbdm. A corresponding word in Hebrew is rbdm which means, to speak. It is often in this lonely place that God speaks a Word rbd to our hearts.
