The Wilderness Companion

Fifteen years ago, the Lord spoke to me to begin writing down everything He spoke to or showed me, saying I would “need it to tell the story.” I never asked what the story was, and until He spoke to me to write this book, I never knew.

I never expected my life would produce anything grand enough to write a book about. I was surprised when the Lord sent me a word through more than one person in one week in 2010, that He wanted me to start writing. For months I prayed and struggled to understand what the book was to be about. What is it You want me to write about, Lord? What can I possibly know enough about to put into a book for You?

Finally, late in 2011, the answer came when He spoke this to me:

I want you to tell others about The Wilderness. I want you to tell them about how I took care of you there.

This book is the story of my journeys through The Wilderness, through those desert places where everything is barren and dry. The desert places are not places of comfort. The heat is on, and nothing in your life is the same as it was before in the desert, but it is there that you will learn more than ever before about yourself, and about your God. The book is full of dialogues between the Lord and I, as He taught me during my wilderness seasons, and includes visions not released anywhere else.

In a wilderness walk, God is trying you, refining you, proving you. But He is also proving Himself to you. He is proving that He and His word are both true. He is taking more of your fleshly nature, the part of you that wants the things of this world - out of the equation and filling that empty space with His glorious spirit. The end result is a lot less of you and a whole lot more of Him as well as an increased understanding of Him, that ultimately results in a powerful testimony that has the power to reach others for His Name's Sake.

A wilderness experience is something that happens in the lives of those who are about to be promoted to a new level of anointing, but the greatest reward of walking through the wilderness is a closer intimacy with the Lord. When you walk through fiery trials with someone and survive them, you have a closer bond with that person, because you experience things in the fire that you don’t experience at other times of your life and only others who have also walked through that fiery place truly understand. Like the brave men and women of the armed forces who have fought on the battlefields will tell you, intense battles tend to bring out both the best and the worst in each of us and when you battle side by side with someone, you share both fear and courage. You weep tears of sorrow as well as tears of joy, but you weep together.

I pray my story will inspire you to reach a little higher, risk a little more, believe a little bit deeper than ever before. 

The purpose of this book is to share with you what I have learned through my wilderness experiences. In sharing them, it is my prayer that your walks there will be a little less dark and terrifying, that you will walk with a little more faith than I did, that you will have the assurance of knowing even the desert places don't last forever. This too shall pass. It is my hope that by telling you my experiences in the wilderness, you will be encouraged in your own.

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” (Mat 11:12) Have you ever wondered what this “violent force” looks like? The Wilderness Companion is the living example of such violence lived out. This book is about the violent seizure of the Kingdom of God, and the events that surround refusing to let go at any cost.
