Faith Lessons Volume 12: Walking With God in the Desert by Ray Vander Laan.
Filmed on location in the Middle East, Walking with God in the Desert will transform your understanding of God and challenge you to be a true follower of Jesus. In this first of seven sessions from the Walking with God in the Desert DVD, Ray Vander Laan teaches you that the desert of affliction brings suffering, provision, and blessing. God uses everything in life, especially deserts, to reveal His love and mercy and to show us that He is with us, shaping us into his children.
For those of us who seek to live as God's people today, it is essential that we understand the stories of Scripture as more than ancient history. The ancient stories of the Bible describe God and define the faith walk of his people. God's people come to know him by what he does, not by attempting to define him with precise doctrine. God's people come to live the way he desires by remembering, retelling, and reliving his great redemptive acts.
Like the ancient Hebrews, we need deliverance from bondage. We need to be amazed by God's power. We need to respond to his voice. As we wander through the deserts of our lives, we need to set our feet firmly on the foundation of depending on God and living by his every word. Their story is our story.
