In these uncertain times of lockdown and restrictions, I have heard folks saying they are bored and frustrated. We all go through seasons of waiting, and this could be yours. A lot of times, people just sit back and wait for God to do it all. But you have to remember to do your part, and make preparations with the tools He has given you.
Making preparation is having a vision and moving in that direction. Talk like itâ€™s going to happen and act like itâ€™s going to happen. Some people might say â€œwell, what if I do and it doesnâ€™t happen?â€ Really, we should think â€œwhat if I do and it does happen?â€ Be positive. Even if things donâ€™t turn out the way you had hoped, you are better off living your life feeling positive and hopeful, than going around down and discouraged. I love what David said in the Bible, â€œGod, my times are in Your hands.â€ He was saying, â€œGod, I donâ€™t know when itâ€™s going to happen, but I know You know whatâ€™s best for me.â€
Today, go out expecting good things. Even if it doesnâ€™t happen, Iâ€™m not going to go to bed disappointed. Iâ€™m going to go to bed knowing that Iâ€™m one day closer to seeing my dreams, visions and desires come to pass!
Â â€œ…Prepare the way of the Lord…â€ (Isaiah 40:3, NKJV)Â
Yahweh, I dedicate this day to You. Father, show me how to prepare for the blessings that are coming in my future. Almighty God, help me guard my words and thoughts as I put my trust in You, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
