Among the important points covered in the book include:
1. In every wilderness experience God will bring special people to minister to us.
2. Spiritual leaders are never elected, they are called by God.
3. God will use our wilderness experience to open a door for us that we would not have otherwise have noticed.
4. Sometimes the most creative thoughts and ideas come from a wilderness experience.
5. The wilderness is not meant to be permanent.
6. As long as a leader is weak and dependent on God, he/she will be successful.
7. There are certain wilderness experiences that cannot be learned in the rush of life.
8. God is far more interested in our relationship with Him instead of us keeping His rules.
9. Most people are uncomfortable with silence.
10. 4 suggestions on what to do when in a wilderness experience.
While the author passed away in 1992, his words still speak loud and clear. The book, while written almost 30 years ago, could stand to be read by many Christians and others who are on the fast-moving treadmill or rat race of life.
Read, absorb, and reflect on the love God has for you, even when you are going through a difficult time.
Reading this book has shed light on the many areas that God had brought me thorugh, and the lessons learnt, but it also showed and reinforced what had been learnt and to strengthen them in my life. Jamie, having tracked through the physical wilderness that the Israelites had gone through and to climb Mt. Sinai, brings to life what Moses and the Israelites must have gone through. His writings cuts deep into the soul to search the hearts and bring the wilderness to the reader. The wilderness is not a physical place, but it is a process to bring us to the place where we can hear God and walk in His ways.
This is one book that will be read again. We need to make constant trips back into the wilderness, so that new promise lands can be found as we hear and obey God. The Epilogue is a climax close to the book as he describes the human response from a group that had tracked through the wilderness with Jamie. The responses are so human yet so divine, but unless we are constantly aware of our humanity, we would likely return to our wilderness to redicover that part of us.
