About

My search for the truth has taken me from putting my hopes in politics to religion and finally from religion to finding that the Truth is a person and not to be found in the thoughts and dogmas of men. As Jesus told the religious scholars of 2000 years ago, “You search the scriptures and in them you think you will find life and it is they which speak of me and you will not come to ME that you might have life.”

I have been married to Dorothy ever since 1966 and we have four children and ten grandchildren. We live in north Idaho in north-western USA. Dorothy is integral to our service to the people of God in that she does most of our editing, web design, publishing and printing in our home office. We would be lost without her. George Davis and I have been writing together since we met in 2000 and currently have written thirteen books that are available for free on our website http://awildernessvoice.com. If you are looking for writings on the deeper life that is ours in Christ as believers, you might enjoy the blog and our site. You can read my testimony, at least my first 30 years of following Christ here:

    Hi,

    I have really been blessed by this Blog and your main website. You articles are very powerful and Holy Spirit inspired. I have done a lot of searching on the Internet and there is some good stuff, but also some not so good. I appreciate your humility and that you are not self seeking.

      Tony,
      How does one respond to a comment like yours? Thank you. It has been our prayer for many years that God would do such a deep work in us that His words would be what we speak from the heart of Christ and that we would only do those works that HE has foreordained that we should walk in. This has required more stripping than I ever thought possible and has put us on a journey that never ends, the way of the cross of Christ. BUT if you want to get a true evaluation of who we REALLY are, just talk to our wives. 🙂

      Bless you to, my brother,

      Wow, Anna! You are one of the few that have gone to our website from our blog and taken any time to read its content and come back and let me know about how it has blessed you. George and I have hundreds if not thousands of hours in our books and articles the Spirit has given us to write and we believe that they are there for all that He sends that way without us blowing our horns about it. We see ourselves as His scribe, not authors, so as much as we can we listen and He uses us to write.

      A compliment like this from a published author as yourself is a real blessing my sister. BTW, You can see Anna’s book and read part of the first chapter and introduction here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Rose-Garden-Daughters-Story/dp/1602478902

    • Michael says:

      Thank you, Steve. Yes, I do hope that I am a voice of God’s Grace to all. I have been through the mill in the last 45 years since I first totally surrendered my life to Christ for Him to give and take away from it as He chooses. I read your post on your blog about anxiety and could relate as well. For me my anxiety comes on me like a flood, all at once and usually it is triggered when I feel out of control and if I don’t DO the right things it will get worse. But, dear brother, herein is the problem. Our faith in God and being restored to it does not happen by our “doing,” but rather by resting and trusting IN Christ!

      Thou dost keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee, because he trusts in thee. Trust in the LORD for ever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock. (Isaiah 26:3-4 RSVA)

      Did you know that God created man at the end of the sixth day, the very end of all His creation works and then rested? He made man to enter into HIS rest, not to continue trying to do His works. Our bodies and souls are made for faith in what God has done and rest, not for fear, anxiety and doing. In Hebrews ch. 4 he makes it clear that not resting in God, but trying to do works that please Him is unbelief. You mentioned your tithing record as if God is ready to pull the plug on you if you do not tithe on everything you bring in or have. What bondage! We are no longer under the Old Covenant and anywhere that church leaders appeal to the Old Law to get people to give to them or do THEIR wills, that is bondage, not freedom. Paul put it this way,

      O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun with the Spirit, are you now ending with the flesh? Did you experience so many things in vain?–if it really is in vain. Does he who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you do so by works of the law, or by hearing with faith? Thus Abraham “believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.” So you see that it is men of faith who are the sons of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “In you shall all the nations be blessed.” So then, those who are men of faith are blessed with Abraham who had faith. For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be every one who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, and do them.” Now it is evident that no man is justified before God by the law; for “He who through faith is righteous shall live”; (Galatians 3:1-11 RSVA)

      Brother, when you give up law keeping as a way to please God and totally rest in what Christ has done for you and in His grace, most of your anxiety will vanish.

      “Dear Father, please let these words fully enter into Steve’s heart so he can see what a blessing is his as He abides in the finished works of Christ and rests in your heavenly presence. Purge his mind of all these false teachings of church men that have held him in bondage to dead works. Amen”

    Years ago I stood before the wood stove on a wintry night in Idaho, when I was asked by my friend’s mother if I thought that her son would ever come back to the faith.
    I knew the reasons he had left the church and appeared to be living a carnal, materialistic life, but I could not share them with her on his confidence.
    I replied, “There is an answer to everything within the Christian life, and that answer is Christ.”
    This was not something I expected to say. I didn’t even know what it meant at the time.
    Now I am no longer a Christian and Christ is installed in me. I can hear His voice, plain as day, at any time. Answers are at the ready. The answer is a person. The answer is Christ.

      Thanks, Steve.

      I pray that Paul’s prayer might become a full reality in us both that,

      “The eyes of your [our] understanding being enlightened; that you [we] may know what is the hope of his calling, and what is the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he performed in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,” (Eph 1:18-20, KJ2000)

      Wow! The same power that Father worked in Christ, the Firstborn of many brethren, to raise Him from the dead and place Him at His right hand is available to bring we who believe into full sonship as He is in the Father. What shall we say if we neglect so great a salvation as this?

      Thank you, dear Susanne, for “In the Stillness of Our Being” as a “Featured Article” on your blog. You have written so many important things over the last 2 1/2 years on here, but the need for us to enter into our wildernesses rest and hear HIS whisper is the most important thing. Hebrews ch. 4 bears this out and to not do so is to live our lives in unbelief.

      True faith is a state of rest, even when He gives us a task to do. It is interesting to me how Moses would daily go into the Tent of Meeting to be with God and all the people would stand in the opening of their tents and watch him go by. Not one of them joined him, but they preferred their own tents of unbelief to meeting with God and thus they murmured and complained against God all those forty years. God often puts us into our wilderness times to bring us to an end of ourselves and our doings so that we can “be still and know that He is God” and know HIS wilderness whispered voice.

      Your life and your many daily times alone, your “breaks” that you take, with the Lord have been a shining example to me. I must admit that I have been slow to follow, but our Daddy is getting through to me about how important it is. Thank you so much for being who your are IN the Son,

      • You are very welcome, dear Michael! 🙂

        I do not know whether what I wrote was important, however, sometimes the Lord nudges me to read some of my ‘old’ stuff and I wonder, “Who the heck wrote THIS?” 😀

        To me, this post was a good reminder and confirmation as to God’s leading in my current life situations today as I realized while rereading it.

        That is indeed interesting what you said about the whole people only watching Moses meeting God. I presume they murmured and complained because they did NOT know HIM Who provided everything they needed in His perfect time. It is the same with our prayer breaks, I think. As for me, I truly need them in order to get my restless mind settled and to see (sometimes afterwards and sometimes even during my prayer times) how God answers my requests. He does not hear all of our prayers immediately, yet He always answers them, sooner or later. Without ever praying we might be inclined to believe that all things happen accidentally or that Satan might be the ruler of our lives if everything we expected turns out wrong in our view.

        Thank you so much for checking out this old post once again, my dear Michael. You are a continued encouragement to me! ⭐
