• “There may be love, understanding love, all around us, and yet we may be needing some word of life in our own soul, something that would do what only the Divine can do. “Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life.” – Amy Carmichael

Prepared in the Desert by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/12/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you want a successful life and ministry? Then expect God to give you some desert experiences.

Jesus had a powerful earthly ministry. Luke 4 tells us that He “returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit…. He taught in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.”

There’s something important there. When it says He “returned to Galilee,” where was He returning from? From the desert.

This successful ministry came after Jesus faced danger, loneliness, and temptation for forty days in the desert. God had been preparing Jesus for His earthly ministry during this difficult time.

Maybe it feels like you’re in a desert—what seems like a hopeless, never-ending situation. Can I encourage you? God may be fitting you for future service. He may want to use your “life message” in a powerful way, so trust Him and let Him prepare you for what lies ahead.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
