the desert

“Is it possible for God to prepare a table in the desert?”

In Scripture, the desert is a place of temptation, testing, solitude, prayer, and discipline. Jesus and John the Baptist both prepared for their ministries in the desert. Both Jesus and the Israelites were lead into the desert by God early in their histories and Jesus often went into the wilderness to be alone with the Father.
