Read today’s scripture: Mark 1:1-3
The wilderness can be terrifying. I, personally, love a good plan, with lots of contingency points and back ups for the back up plan. The wilderness throughs my safety net to the wolves though. Seasons of life bring us in and out of the wilderness and it is always with purpose. Testing always happens in the wilderness–it refines us and redirects us. But, salvation also comes in the wilderness. Before us, Moses, Elijah, and David all went to the wilderness and found safety; refuge. Jesus Himself was tested in the wilderness and came back prepared to lead His earthly ministry.
Wherever you are today, it is on purpose. The Lord, way-maker, path-creator, ultimate healer, goes before you. He will redeem this. You can be restored.
