Are you where you want to be? Are you accomplishing your desires? Is your life making an impact? I prayed, ‘Lord let Your Kingdom come, and Your will be done in my life, just like it is in Heaven. (Matt. 6:10)  ‘I will be faithful over the little that You’ve entrusted to me, then you can trust me with much more.’ (Luke 16:10) I am so aware of my need for: wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, for doors of Divine access, for favor with God and man, for miraculous supply and good stewardship, and for platforms on which to stand and declare the good news of the Gospel. Knowing you’re dependent on God is not a bad thing!! I confessed struggling with not having accomplished more by now.  To this He replied, “I just want you to prepare.

  • to make something/someone ready for use or consideration
  • create in advance – pre-plan
  • make someone ready or able to do or to deal with something
  • be willing to do something
In whatever direction you feel God calling you, or you just want to go…prepare.  FAITH ACTS as if what we hope for is so (Heb.11:1), and faith without corresponding works, is dead (James 2:26)  It’s time to go to yet another level of PREPARATION!!   
As we are faithful to prepare for what God is calling us to, He is faithful to use His power, influence, provision and people to help prepare the way! You and I are not special in this, God prepared the way for Jesus by using the prophets Isaiah and John the Baptist. (Reference Mark 1: 1-4):    
1This is the Good News about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God.It began 2just as the prophet Isaiah had written: “Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, and he will prepare your way.3He is a voice shouting in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord‘s coming! Clear the road for him!‘” 4This messenger was John the Baptist. He was in the wilderness and preached that people should be baptized to show that they had repented of their sins and turned to God to be forgiven.
It’s hard for us to imagine that God would want or need to set up a preparation plan for His Son’s coming to save the world, but He did: probably not so much because He wasn’t ready, but because WE weren’t ready. HE is ready for us to do and be all that He has said…but are WE ready? Let’s get there…  
The Roman Philosopher Seneca said, “‘Luck’ is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”  We don’t believe in luck, but in God’s Divine plan and destiny. What if God had people, provision and possibilities all lined up, but they were just waiting for a PREPARED YOU?!   
New Life Covenant Cincinnati’s  30 for $30 campaign is on NOW!! Please be a part of what we’re doing to make an impact in the City and beyond…
