Miracles In The Wilderness
Mark 8:4 NKJV "Then His disciples answered Him, “How can one satisfy these people with bread here in the wilderness?"
For people who live by sight, a wilderness is the least likely place for extraordinary things to occur. A wilderness is a barren land, a wasteland, a deserted area; it's certainly not a place that inspires hope.
But in the Bible, many amazing miracles were done in the wilderness! God is as powerful in the wilderness as He is in other places; in fact, it's in the wilderness that He does the most amazing miracles and displays His mighty power. Where men fail, God shines! Where men see nothing good, God is glorified! Where men have given up, God is highly exalted!
Where you are is not the problem: maybe you have just been posted to a dry place and you're wondering how you will make it there, cheer up, God still does miracles in the wilderness! Have faith in God, He will cause you to prosper in that very place. See what God can do: Psalms 107:35-38 says, "He turns a wilderness into pools of water, and dry land into watersprings. There He makes the hungry dwell, that they may establish a city for a dwelling place, and sow fields and plant vineyards, that they may yield a fruitful harvest. He also blesses them, and they multiply greatly; and He does not let their cattle decrease." Hallelujah!
