Author Walter M. Brown Jr. describes the wilderness as an inner feeling of barrenness. Through the spiritual direction in Why the Wilderness?, he hopes to help you better understand your own desolate times by seeing how God assisted him through his own. God allows-and sometimes even plans-your personal wildernesses to mature you for life and ministry. Once understood, this process can help immunize you against these experiences. Brown provides advice on how to overcome "wildernesses" of rejection, silence, and continually changing circumstances. He guides you in the quest to rise to what God intends for you, to better understand the connection between hope and faith, to address and overcome your secret fears, and to bring to light your areas of personal darkness. Also included is a forty-day devotional guide, complete with poems, questions, and reflections. Negotiated wildernesses are important to your spiritual growth and your fulfillment as children of God. One thing is for certain-until we address and venture through the wildernesses in our lives, the angels cannot come!
Jesus' wilderness experience in the fourth chapter of Matthew formed the basis for his inspired relationship with God. His devotional life was key to navigating difficult times. Jesus knew how to systematically get into the presence the Father. Dr. Brown has compiled a forty-day devotional guide to assist believers in their personal devotional studies. This 40-Day devotional guide presents a systematic approach used by the author as he negotiated the wilderness of a wartime deployment and his failure to select for promotion. He learned to journal his journeys through the wilderness. This book contains space for the reader to do the same. Lessons learned can advance our present spiritual development. These valuable lessons can be presented to others. The final added feature is that these devotional stories actually take you onboard a USS Aircraft Carrier. Everyday at sea is unique and challenging. These presented situations take you where Sailors live, work, and eat - a unique perspective of life underway. Readers will come away with a greater appreciation for the unrivaled competence of our sea service personnel and the power of God's Word.
