RENEWAL Devotional: Spiritual Wilderness Mentality
Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for Renewal at Brookhaven Hospital
Do you ever feel stuck in life? We may feel that way when we just can’t seem to get past our struggles, and it seems like we are going around circles. This could be the result of loss, feeling helpless or hopeless, financial stress or broken relationships. We need to view life as an opportunity that offers adventure, instead of feeling stuck.
While in the wilderness, the Israelites struggled with their emotions, even after God showed them miracles upon miracles. It should have taken the Israelites 40 days to come out of their 400 year mental bondage, but instead it took them 40 years.
How long will you remain in the wilderness mentality? God’s grace is all sufficient [2 Corinthians 12:9] and He is ready to bring you out to the land of milk and honey- a resting place full of joy and contentment.
