“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.” Luke 1:80
John the Baptist didn’t show himself until he grew strong in the desert. Moses never led Israel until after spending forty years in the desert. Even Jesus did not start His ministry until He spent forty days in the wilderness. Can you see that it takes some desert and wilderness to make a minister out of a Christian?
