Jesus was driven by the Holy Spirit into the desert when He was baptized. In 40 days, a work was done in Him of preparation for His purpose.
Israel was driven by the Holy Spirit into the desert when they were baptized (1 Corinthians 10). In 40 years, two of the several million original citizens and all of the next generation had received preparation for their purpose. Those who died in the desert did not learn the lessons they were offered through the experiences they had there.
Some people over time will gain 10 years of experience in their field. Others simply gain 1 year of experience 10 times. These are circling the desert.
You are accepted in God’s Beloved Son (Ephesians 1:3-6). Study, to show yourself to be accepted (2 Timothy 2:15). If you feel that you are not equipped to study on your own, study to be equipped to study. Find the tools that extract truth and life from the words in the Book and learn to use them. Study listening to the Spirit.
Prepare yourself to exit the desert and enter your destiny!
