When you are struggling, whether physically or spiritually, it can be easy to fall into despair. You can
get so lost in the darkness of your troubles that you forget about the light at the end of the tunnel.
Keeping God at the center of your life when your world seems to be falling apart can be difficult, so
here are 5 things “thou shalt not” do when going through a wilderness experience
1.Thou shalt not throw a pity party. When you feel as though life is treating you unfairly, you
need to rework your perspective. If God allows you to go through something uncomfortable,
trust that it is for a good reason. Don’t get so caught up in your own feelings that you get down
on yourself, start believing God is against you and has forsaken you. Philippians 4:4 NIV says,
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” And yes, that means even in the rough
2. Thou shalt not become a recluse. Whether you are fighting against an attack of the devil
or an attack of the flesh, don’t fight by yourself. Form a group of believers. Get some
accountability partners. We all need somebody. That may be your family members or your
closest friends, but never go it alone. After all, 1 Corinthians 12:26 (ESV) says, “If one member
suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” Have people there
who will declare victory over your situation when you are at your wits’ end.
