The Wilderness Desert Experience by Ruth Dickson

The Wilderness Desert Experience:
Everyone will be tested by fire. Indeed, the child of God will be tried and tested. The trials and testings are tools used to change a pathway from a crooked one, to a straight one.

The inward work of the Holy Spirit brings about transformation that eventually reflects on the outside.

The Experience Permitted:
God allows the wilderness; desert experience to remove what needs to be removed. It is used as a molding instrument. Maturity comes from the wilderness and desert experience. God knows what to do to equip you for your journey here on earth.

In Christ, your ultimate destination is Heaven. Take solace in this. In Christ alone, all hope is found.

Preparedness by Ruth Dickson

Be Prepared


Matthew 25:1-13

It is not a coincidence that the Bible uses “Oil” as a symbol of the Holy Spirit.  Without Oil, a machine cannot function; in other words, a car cannot run on empty gas.  

How many of us run on empty and expect to be filled up – whenever we have need – from the brother or sister who is connected with the Holy Spirit. This is what happened in the story of the Ten Virgins ( Mat.25:1-13). It is not that all the Ten Virgins were not tired… Scripture says that, “As the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept.” Both the wise and foolish Virgins were in the same position, tired, fed up and weary, however the wise virgins did not have their vision of Christ  obscured.

What is it that obscures your vision of Christ? What is it that makes one spiritually dead?

When we are not connected to the Spirit of God, but connected to buying, selling, social gatherings; including gatherings on social media, seeking pleasure (in all it forms), it shows ones heart and soul is entangled.  We walk in unbelief if we are not expecting the return of our Saviour, no matter how tired we are!

Are you waiting for the Lord to  return until you have Faith in God? By then it will be far too late ( v.8 -11). You do not know the day or hour of the Lord’s return, so you must be spiritually tuned in to the Spirit of God.  

Heaven is open to all who “truly” believe in Christ, but shut against those who walk in doubt, fear and unbelief.  Those who believe the Word of God know for SURE what they have believed.

“You are the God who sees me,” said Hagar. –Genesis 16:1-15 written by Ruth Dickson

“You are the God who sees me,” said Hagar. –Genesis 16:1-15

The book of Genesis hosts a somewhat controversial story of a woman who gave God a name… The writer of Genesis thought it a story worthy of record; to etch it in history, for the whole world to see.

Hagar, an Egyptian maid-servant, met the “angel of the Lord” by a spring of water.

The Spirit of the Lord, is a Spring of Life to all who drink from Him. In this case, the angel of the Lord found Hagar. He met her in her wilderness and spoke life over her.

What a story of Grace!

 Hagar, a maid and least in her society, found mercy and grace, where she least expected it. Do you know God reaches out to the least in society, He goes out of His way to fight for the disenfranchised. God speaks on behalf of those who face injustice. God saves the souls of those who are lost.

What a wilderness experience!

So much so, that Hagar gave Yahweh (God) a name, recorded in history forever. “She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her”: EL ROI.

“You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.” (EL ROI).

The Spirit of Grace by Ruth Dickson

The Spirit of Grace by Ruth Dickson

The fact that a person believes in God, is a Work of the Spirit. A person does not come to faith on their own.

The person who feels drawn to the things of the Spirit, is drawn by the Spirit of God.

Salvation is by grace, through faith in Christ. How does a person come to believe in Jesus Christ? It is by grace and grace alone. This removes self-effort, self-acclaim and self – boasting from the matter. No one can talk about how good they were, or are; how righteous they were or are, in coming to faith in Christ. It is God who showed them mercy in the first place and anyone who believes in Christ, lives by God’s mercy and grace alone.

Justified by Faith by Ruth Dickson

Most of all, having being justified by faith, you are no longer at war with God. You are no longer an enemy of God. Your conscience is cleansed, the guilt of sin removed, you now live at peace with God.

To live a life of grace, you must walk by faith. Hallelujah! The Just live by faith!

Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ went through trials, tribulations and persecutions on this earth.

In His darkest hours He cried out to God His Light, Salvation and Deliverer.

In your darkest hour, the Lord is your Light. He shows you the way out and leads you home.

The Lord is your Salvation, He has rescued your soul.

The Lord is your Stronghold, the Strong-tower you run into, in times of trouble.

David provided a reason for every statement He made to God in Psalm 86. His closing words in Psalm 86 were: “Show me a sign of your favour”

And his reason:

“…that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame.”

I pray that just like David prayed: May the Lord “help” you and “comfort” you. May the Lord show you a sign of His super-abounding, immeasurable “FAVOUR” to the point where your haters may see it, and be put to shame.

The Mysteries of God


No entity compares to God Almighty. There is no joy that compares to the joy of those who know their God.

Those who know God wait for Him because they discern His promises. Discernment comes by the Spirit of God. He is the revealer of secrets.

He Knew Before You


Before you were formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you. He predestined your pathway on this earth.

It is by the Spirit of God, a chosen generation of people listen to Christ and conform to his image

Those who have been called by God, belong to one family and Christ is the Head of this family. He is the firstborn of an innumerable people.
