When we are surrounded by GOD’s creation it is easy to see the magnificence of GOD.
We can see the beauty and intricate detail that HE put into the wilderness that surrounds us.
The silence allows us to truly listen for GOD’s still small voice. The peacefulness gives us perspective on what really matters. Stepping into the wilderness and away from the bombardment of noise and rush of our normal day to day life allows us to reset and realign with our true purpose.
Just like the compass that we use when we get lost deep in the woods, the wilderness helps us to reset and focus on our true north.
As Fred Bear said, if we can enter the wilderness with high moral values and ethics, the experience will be rich and we will be able to draw closer to GOD.
“When a hunter is in a tree stand with high moral values and with the proper hunting ethics and richer for the experience, that hunter is 20 feet closer to God.” – Fred Bear
