Read Jeremiah 31:17 and Matthew 25:6-10
Preparation reduces worry
Whatever it is you are hoping and expecting, it is important to be prepared for it. How can you say, one day I will do this or that, but are lacking to put yourself in a position to be able to receive it? In Jeremiah 31:17, God says there is hope in your future. This lets us know the very thing you are hoping shall come to pass.
Prepare and expect
Read Matthew 25:6-10. There are ten women who set out on a journey – all expecting to meet the bridegroom to attend a marriage. There is something very powerful about this passage -ALL TEN WERE EXPECTING! So, if all ten were expecting to meet the bridegroom, why is it only half were prepared?
A chosen few
Many times when we set out on our journeys with hopes, aspirations and dreams we may all start at the same place, but only a selected few obtain victory because of simply preparing in advance.
So, what are you expecting from God today? Is it success on your job, a long and healthy life, a marriage, financial success or simply peace? You have to begin to not only believe, but also start preparing yourself today.
Reflection: Take time today to list five things you have been expecting and praying for from God. Next to each item, list what preparations you can begin to take in order to be prepared to receive it.
