How are you doing in the desert – or do you even feel like you’re in the desert? It is, after all, possible for the church to be in one season and for you to be in another, and apparently, there are some for whom these are the golden days. If that’s you, we rejoice with you; lay your hands on us that we might receive this gift also! But for those of you who find yourselves in a dry and weary land, I pray that you will take heart: The LORD is working his purposes in the desert, even when we don’t perceive it. As a popular worship song declares, “Even when I don’t see it, You’re working; even when I don’t feel it, You’re working. You never stop; You never stop working.” In those moments when we neither see nor feel it, we can stand on his promise that he will never leave us, nor forsake us.
