“Every believer must cross a few spiritual deserts in his or her pilgrimage to the Celestial City.

Some arid places may be traversed in an hour or a few days. Occasionally, however, you may be required to travel for weeks with an almost withered soul.

Press on in worship. Cry out to God for a renewed awareness of the ‘rivers of living water’ (referring to the Holy Spirit) that Jesus in John 7:38 promised would flow in every believer.

But don’t stop worshiping. Never give up in the desert. You don’t know how wide it is, and you may be almost across.”

~ Donald S. Whitney
