Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James 4:10 (NIV)
DADs…last week we reflected upon the preparation that God does.
As we also mentioned last week, preparation of the heart is an ongoing process.
Today we will look at the preparation we do.
It involves holding our heart out before the Lord, with an attitude of desiring to please Him in all areas of our life.
The preparation on our end requires each of us saying to God: “Prepare my heart, Lord, for what You have in store for me. I trust that any change initiated by You is for the better, no matter how it appears at the time. Help me to yield to Your plans for my life, which are always good and full of hope.”
DADs…how many times have we heard ourselves say, “I just don’t see God in this situation," "I didn’t connect with the pastor’s message today,” "I cannot seem to find God in this place."
It is in these circumstances, we must prepare our hearts and be still.
DADs...when we humble ourselves before Him, confess our great need of Him, and desire to do His will, we will meet God on the path He lays out for us always.
God is always on the job, but in order for us to be reMade, we must reflect and relent,
doing our preparation allowing God to change our hearts.
To God be the glory!
“Get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day God gives you!
