Serve Him in Your Wilderness

Written by Pastor Kai Horn
Pastor_Horne_squareAnd you shall say to him, “The Lord God said, Let my people go that they may serve me in the wilderness. So far, you have disobeyed.” Exodus 7:16

There is a divine connection between our spiritual lives; and, the forty days of self-denial and self-discipline associated with the Lenten season. The anointing on the forty days is, in my strong opinion, the reason that it is such a challenge to designate this time in devotion to our Lord. The biblical number forty is not foreign to us. Many people have written about the forty day journey into the wilderness in scripture. If we only use the story of Moses, we then remember that the Lord said, “Let my people go, so that they can serve me in the wilderness.” (Ex. 7:16) It is truly a time of service unto the Lord.

Too many people want to run from the wilderness or come out of the wilderness too fast. The reason that we quickly run to idol gods is that the wilderness is difficult. In the wilderness we have to pray and wait. In the wilderness we have to receive God’s blessings and wait. In the wilderness, we sin and wait for the manifestation of God’s mercy. In the wilderness, we see the isolation, we feel the hunger, our throats become parched; and our sight becomes dim. However, if we are intentional about prayer, praise, worship, scripture, communion, following the path and the ways of God, then the wilderness is also the place where we learn to trust in a God who is faithful in every way.

It is not without opposition. There is opposition in the wilderness. There is also opposition getting there. Moses fled Egypt and learned the God of the wilderness in preparation to lead God’s people through the wilderness. He learned the world in Egypt. He met the God of a burning bush in the wilderness. Moses told Pharaoh this message (Let my people go so that they may serve me) from God seven times before Pharaoh would let God’s people go. How long will we hear this message before we trust God and venture in? How long will we hear this message before we resolve that there is a blessing in where we exist?

Today, I am intentional about the wilderness. If I enter in, I know I will meet my Lord. If I stay a while there is a promise land waiting for me!
