14. Mystery of the Wilderness Experience
There is always a season in our lives that we have to pass through the wilderness experience. The wilderness experience is also called the Night Seasons, The Storm or The Midnight Hour. It is a period we must all go through before we experience a promotion in life. The Israelites went through it after they were delivered from Egypt, the land of captivity. They had to pass through it before they were able to get to the Promised Land. Jesus, our role model himself had to go through it a number of times before going to the next level. He went through it before starting his earthly ministry. He experienced a storm before the glorious deliverance of the demon possessed man who lived in the tomb in the country of the Gadarenes. Luke 8:22-39. He was forsaken and denied by his closest friends and disciples. He was tortured and crucified to death, but eventually, He rose from the death victoriously. God had to give him a name above all names in Heaven, earth and beyond. Philippians 2:8-11.We must always remember that there will always be a time in our lives we have to face the test of life before experiencing the promotion God has for us.
