Today on our Daughter of the King Global Facebook page someone had put a very short video clip that talked about preparedness. It really jumped out at me and I have been thinking about it all morning.
God is doing something new in so many areas of life and in so many different ways. As the scripture I got at the beginning of the year says; "Behold I will do a new thing, will you not be aware of it..." that is certainly happening all over the world right now with COVID-19. We are not always going to be in lock down, but what will life be like after COVID-19?
When God does something new, it is not going to look like anything we have been use to, so we will have to find a new normal again after COVID-19.
So the question we should ask ourselves today is "Grethe(insert your own name) are you prepared for the new"
Definition of unprepared: If you are unprepared for something, you are not ready for it, and you are therefore surprised or at a disadvantage when it happens.
Definition of prepared: made ready for use- ready to do or deal with something - to make ready beforehand for a specific purpose.
As God's Ambassadors we need to learn to live prepared because we never know when our King is going to send us on an assignment. Remember though that when He sends you or asks you to do something, He will give you everything you need to fulfil the task.
A new assignment can be anything from moving to the other side of the world or simply sharing the Gospel with your neighbours, or praying and everything in between.
Ephesians 2:10 ESV For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Our Father in Heaven has already prepared the new for us, He just needs our YES LORD here am I, send me.
Philippians 4:13 ESV I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
Father today I pray that you would give us eyes to see, ears to hear You and a heart to obey You. Father show us if there is anything in our lives that would hinder you from filling us with New Wine. Lord we want to be ready , we want to be bold. Lord fill us today with your boldness, Your wisdom, Your courage and Your love for others we pray in Jesus Name. AMEN
