SERMON: OVERCOMING YOUR WILDERNESS

THEME SCRIPTURES: DEUTERONOMY 8:15-16 He led you through the vast and dreadful wilderness, that thirsty and water-less land, with its venomous snakes and scorpions. He brought you water out of hard rock. He gave you manna to eat in the wilderness, something your ancestors had never known, to humble and test you so that in the end it might go well with you.

WHAT IS A WILDERNESS? IT IS A TESTING GROUND,SCHOOL OF JEHOVAH GOD,A PLACE TO EXAMINE YOUR TOTAL DEPENDENCE AND SUBMISSION TO GOD. IT'S THE PLACE EGYPTIAN CANNOT EXAMINE,NEITHER WILL THEY EXPERIENCE, IT'S ONLY MEANT FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD(HIS CHILDREN).

CHRISTIAN TEND TO COMPARE THEMSELVES WITH EGYPTIAN (UNBELIEVER),THEY DESPISE WHAT THEY CARRYING. WILDERNESS IS A LEARNING CENTER OF JEHOVAH WHERE ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE KINGDOM WILL BE GROOM AND GROWN. IT IS A PLACE WHERE GOD WILL REFINE YOU LIKE A GOLD IN THE HAND OF GOLDSMITH, UNTIL YOU REFLECT GOD, JUST LIKE THE GOLDSMITH WILL BE REFLECTED IN THE REFINED GOLD. HEAVEN IS NOT FOR EVERYBODY UNTIL YOU PASS THROUGH THE WILDERNESS YOU CAN'T SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD NEITHER CAN YOU MOVE OVER TO CANAAN LAND.

AS YOU ARE FELLING THE PAIN IN THE WILDERNESS GOD IS ALSO FEELING THE SAME, JUST LIKE THE GOLDSMITH IS FELLING THE FIRE PASSING UNTO THE GOLD. WILDERNESS IS A DRY GROUND,IT IS A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL WORK THREE (3) DAYS WITHOUT WATER AFTER WHICH YOU WILL FIND WATER WITH BITTERNESS .

WILDERNESS ARE MEANT TO DISCOVER OUR PURPOSE ,GLORY AND THE VIRTUES OF GOD IN US. JUST AS DAVID SAID IN THE BOOK OF PSALM 66:12 You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.

IT IS IN THE WILDERNESS GOD WILL PERFECT YOUR FAITH, WITHOUT TEACHER HOW CAN YOU WRITE EXAM? WILDERNESS IS A TEACHER, WHERE THE SON OF GOD JESUS PASS THROUGH AND RETURN IN THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT.

WILDERNESS IS NOT AS A RESULT OF SIN BUT IT IS A PROGRAM STATURES OF GOD WHERE HE BIT OUT THE DIESEL IN THE CRUDE

DEUTERONOMY 8:2-3:

2 Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.3 He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.

IF WHAT WE ARE GOING TO EAT,DRINK, WEAR IS THE PROBLEM WE ARE UNDER A CAUSE, WHY WILDERNESS? IT IS TO MAKE MAN LIVE BY THE WORD OF GOD, IN EVERY AREA OF OUR LIFE,IT IS THE PLACE YOU LEARN TO TRUST ONLY IN GOD. WILDERNESS IS WHERE GOD TRAIN YOU SO AS TO RELY UPON HIM AND HIS WORD.

THE MORE YOU KNOW THE ESSENCE OF WILDERNESS, THE MORE THE DEVIL RUNS AWAY FROM YOU, THE MORE YOU BEGINS TO GAIN STRENGTH FROM GOD. WILDERNESS IS A JOURNEY THAT HAVE END.

JESUS SAID EVERYTHING WRITTEN CONCERNING ME HAVE END. THE BIBLE SAYS IN THE BOOK OF ISAIAH 48:10: THE LORD SAID I HAVE REFINED THE BUT NOT WITH GOLD AND SILVER:BUT I HAVE CHOSEN THEE IN THE FURNACE OF AFFLICTION: THIS IS A TEMPLATE OF WILDERNESS, THE SCHOOL OF GOD.

WE MUST NOT RUN AWAY FROM WILDERNESS,IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GOD TO DECLARE IS POWER AND MAJESTY IN YOUR LIFE WHEN IT COMES BECKONING. GOD NEVER COMES LATE:WHEN THE 3 HEBREW WERE TRIED,CAST INTO THE FIRE GOD NEVER CAME, BUT HE CAME IN THE RIGHT TIME TO DECLARE IS MAJESTY AND POWER IN THEIR MIDST IN THE JOURNEY OF WILDERNESS:IN THAT SITUATION GOD ALWAYS WANT IS NAME TO BE DECLARE AND MADE MANIFEST IN EVERY NATION WHERE HIS CHILDREN ENCOUNTER CHALLENGES.

THE MOMENT YOU SAY YOU ARE OUT OF THE WILDERNESS (SCHOOL OF GOD) YOU START TO DIE.

HOW TO OVERCOME THE WILDERNESS

WORK IN THE COVENANT OF ABRAHAM THAT SECURE VICTORY IN THE WILDERNESS OF ISRAELITE. WHEN THE ISRAELITE WERE MURMURING, GOD HEARD THEM AND REMEMBER THE COVENANT OF ABRAHAM. IN LUKE 13 THE WOMAN IN THE POSITION OF STAGNATION FOR 18 YEARS WAS DELIVERED AS A RESULT OF ABRAHAMIC COVENANT SAME AS GALATIANS 3:13-14 IF YOU WANT TO BRING GOD OF ABRAHAM INTO YOUR BATTLE WORK IN COVENANT.

FOLLOW THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE WILDERNESS:IN THE WILDERNESS GOD IS ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU ISAIAH 43:2,EXODUS 13:21 YOU MUST NOT ALLOW THE TROUBLE OF WILDERNESS TO OVERWHELM NEITHER TAKE AWAY THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT FROM YOU BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THOSE WHO ARE LEAD BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD ARE CALL HIS SONS. NUMBERS 9:15-22 WHEN YOU ALLOW THE LEADING OF THE SPIRIT THE AUTHORITY OF THE LORD WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU. IN THAT WILDERNESS YOU ARE, ARE YOU FOLLOWING THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT? YOU MUST BE LIKE I WILL NOT DO ANYTHING UNTIL GOD SPEAK, I WILL NOT TAKE ANY STEP UNTIL GOD LEAD, I WILL NOT MARRY UNTIL GOD SPEAK, THIS WILL HELP YOU OVERCOME THE JOURNEY OF WILDERNESS
