From The Father’s Heart
2 Chronicles 27:6
“…So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God.”
2 Chronicles 12:14
“And he did evil because he prepared not his heart to seek the LORD. “
I want you to pray for yourself that you will be ready for what God is bringing your way this year. As a person, you must pray this prayer. Corporately also, we must do the same. God gave us a mandate this year- One million souls for the kingdom of God. You must ask the Lord to show you all the preparations you need to do. Where will you have to come in as a person for the actualization of this mandate?
David prepared abundantly for the temple, even though he did not build it. Will I be ready for what God is bringing for me? The Holy Spirit must show you the heart preparation that is required emotionally, financially, physically, and spiritually to partake and take your portion. God always prepares His people for what He is bringing for them or the future He is taking them to. But most times, people are in a hurry and will not wait for God to prepare them thoroughly.
God will not give you what you cannot handle. God will wait for you until you are ready. Joseph was made; God spent 13 years preparing him for the throne of Egypt. He has prepared for him. When Joseph had learnt how to manage things and people in Potiphar’s house, God sent him to the prison to learn sensitivity to God and man, and then he was ready to reign. Don’t be in a hurry that you don’t have what to use when you get to where you are going. Let God make you first, and He will then give you. Will you be ready when your God-given platform shows up?
Till next time, go and with Jesus.
