This message calls us to consider the state of our world, and even though it may be a desert, we are to work preparing the way of the Lord, so that in all things He is pre-eminent. We can be confident that He will guide us to the end.
Isaiah 40:3 English Standard Version (ESV)
3 A voice cries:[a]
“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord;
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
