Champions In The Wilderness – Book Review
Are there times when your spiritual life has felt dry… parched… fruitless… where you’ve felt like your prayers bounce off the ceiling… when you’ve wanted to journey to the promised land, but instead, you’ve found yourself wandering in the desert?
If so, you’re not alone! Those seasons happen to all of us and Bob Santos – the founder of Search For Me Ministries – has written a book to help you find your way to the other side.
That book is called Champions In The Wilderness – Fifty-Two Devotions To Guide And Strengthen Emerging Overcomers and it’s one of the most practical and encouraging devotionals you’ll ever read!
The premise of the Champions In The Wilderness is simple. Putting the concepts into practice, however, is another matter. Bob writes:
Throughout the Bible, we find stories of men and women who, for one reason or another, found themselves in the midst of a wilderness experience. Whether or not the desolate territory they traversed was a literal wasteland or not is immaterial; each set of circumstances pointed toward a greater spiritual reality. More often than not, their response to lonely and adverse situations became the factor that determined who emerged as a champion and who sank miserably into defeat.
As you journey through these 52 devotionals, you’ll find situations that resonate with you – passages that speak to you – action steps that challenge you – prayers that stretch you. The format may appear simple – but going through the experience can be profound.
Bob guides you through your wilderness journey in four stages:
- Stage One – Understanding The Nature Of Your Journey
- Stage Two – The Wilderness Faith Walk
- Stage Three – Finding Rest, Purposes and Security In Desolate Places
- Stage Four – Journeying With A Purpose
Each weekly devotional contains a:
- Bible Verse
- Probing Questions
- Action Step
- Closing Prayer
- Further Reading
In addition, there are several useful Appendices with information about:
- Inspirational Bible Passages and Promises
- How To Join The Family Of God
- Tips To Help Find A Local Church
I really enjoyed the premise and the practical information contained in Champions In The Wilderness and recommend it to readers who may be going through a wilderness season of their own and could use an encouraging guide!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
