Five Minute Friday – READY
Are you ready for some football? Ready to go? People get ready, Jesus is coming! When I think of the word ready activity comes to mind. Sunday morning daddies looking at their watches: Ready? Coaches looking to the player on the bench: Ready? Savoring the thought of Thanksgiving repast: Ready?
Yet the Lord asks us to get ready and it’s nothing to do with activity. It’s a word of the heart. It’s an action required within. Everything from life to godliness is given to us from the inside out. We are made ready by the washing with the water of the Word (Ephesians 5:26) We are given the amount of faith to ready ourselves for living this life, preparing for becoming Christlike and to have access to heaven for eternity. He makes us ready, we just live in His readiness. What a peaceful exchange to the immense activity the world demands of us.
The Lord Himself is ready as well. For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You. Psalm 86:5 What beautiful words to contemplate the readiness of God Himself, the King and Lord of Heaven and Earth!
Oh beloved, it’s Friday. As you ready yourself for the day and prepare your activities for the week-end be sure to carve out some time to unwind and prepare your heart for God’s message to you – His message of Love, Grace, Peace, Contentment and Blessing. He wants to speak to your heart. Are you ready?
I Samuel 3:10 Then God came and stood before him exactly as before, calling out, “Samuel! Samuel!” Samuel answered, “Speak. I’m your servant, ready to listen.” (MSG)
