We are familiar with the thrills of dating. The excitement, anxiety, shivers and joy as loving pairs get to discover one another. The desire to be alone lost in each other oblivious of the world around consumes the couple imaginations. Maybe what we have never know is that our Heavenly Father is a master when it comes to dating. God would do anything to get time alone with us and especially so when the detractions of life deny us a close fellowship with him. God describes himself as a jealous God who will not compete for attention with another. Of particular importance is knowing that God has a preference for the wilderness as his dating site. He doesn’t meet with us in the Internet or some other dating sites and coffee joints, he knows a wilderness in our lives will keep us focused on him. He knows we always come to the end of ourselves in the wilderness. He knows how to make us attentive waiting for his still small voice. God’s dating site many times is in the form of some wilderness far away from other detracting where He can get some time alone with us. Which wilderness are you in today? Could you be wishing to run away from a place God desires to have time alone with you? Could the challenges you are going through currently a way of God seeking to draw your attention? How is God speaking to you through the challenges associated with Covid 19? It’s not every wilderness we should run away from. We meet God best in the wildernesses of life. A gardener is never close to the vine than when he is pruning it. Likewise, God is an ever present help in times of trouble and always close to the broken hearted. Don’t desire to be taken away from that wilderness so soon because it could be the only place you can have a transformational encounter with the love of your life!
““Therefore, behold, I will allure her, Will bring her into the wilderness, And speak comfort to her.”Hosea 2:14 NKJV
