I am not sure God sees the desert this way, Angel. In Hosea 2:14, speaking of Israel as if the nation were His unfaithful wife, He says, “Therefore, behold, I will allure her, bring her into the wilderness, and speak kindly to her. Then I will give her her vineyards from there, and the valley of Achor as a door of hope. And she will sing there as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.” The desert has been, and will continue to be, a place where God can effectively cut us off from our dependence on this physical world and develop deeper, loving trust in Him. It’s a preparation for better things, a place of intimacy with Him. What do you think?
