• “If our children were to grow up truthful they much be taught by those who had a regard for truth; and not just a casual regard, a delicate regard. On this point we were adamant.” – Amy Carmichael (Gold Cord)

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.

  • “When we begin to understand what the blood of Jesus does for us, we will testify to the power of His blood, and shall thus have power continually to overcome the enemy. It is blessed to note that the blood of Jesus is the purchase price of our full salvation. ‘Take heed…to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood’ (Acts 20:28)” – Carrie Judd Montgomery
