A Time To Be Alone: Jesus, Moses and David

A Time To Be Alone: Jesus, Moses and David

Many people in the Bible lived through "A Time To Be Alone" before they begun their public ministry. 

A good example of this is Jesus for we can see that He was in the wilderness where he fasted for 40 days and 40 nights before the devil tempted Him. (Matthew 4:1-11) After this He went to Galilee where He begun to preach. (Matthew 4:17)

Another example is Moses who was in the back side of the desert tending the flock of his father-in-law Jethro. (Exodus 3:1) It was while he was here in the back side of the wilderness that God spoke to him from the burning bush and commissioned him to go and to Egypt and ask Pharaoh to release the Israelites. (Exodus 3:10) 

A third example is David who entered the limelight as a giant slayer after spending  some time in the wilderness. We know this from the fact that when his brother heard him asking about the reward for killing Goliath, his brother came and asked him who he had left his sheep in the wilderness with? (1 Samuel 17:28) 

Therefore if you find yourself going through "A Time To Be Alone" understand that God may be trying to instill something in you as He prepares you for your next season which may be in the public limelight.

Therefore instead of struggling to join yourself with others, use this time to Draw near to God  and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8)

View this season as a time to sink your roots deeper into God like a seed which has been planted all alone in its hole sinks its roots deep into the soil before its shoot is seen publicly above the ground.
