3/27/17 Are You Spiritually Prepared?
As I’m sure you’re aware, the world is changing at an alarming rate. Times and seasons are moving in the direction of prophecies being fulfilled time after time with biblical accuracy. As a wise husband and father, it’s becoming increasingly important to have clear direction for the safety and preparedness of you and those the Lord has entrusted to you.
The seasons at hand will require more than simple economic or business savvy. They will require spiritual insight and a working relationship with the Lord so that you have His wisdom to lead your family through the challenging times ahead. The question is two-fold. Are you prepared to navigate the unique times on the horizon with proper spiritual insight, and have you also helped to spiritually prepare those you are a steward of? As things change, it will become increasingly clear that Sunday school classes will not be able to replace intimate family times of seeking the Lord for guidance and direction.
As the Lord’s plan unfolds, only those who have an alive and vibrant relationship with Him - those who are familiar with waiting on Him for each step they take - will be able to overcome the challenges posed in the coming months and years. Those who wait on the Lord will have insights far more important than any abilities gained in the past. Only they will know the proper directions to take and the dangers to avoid.
Now is the time for all of us to take an appraisal of our directions and motives. Are you putting aside those things that have little value, and trading them for those things the Lord considers of worth? Are you preparing yourself to be able to hear the Lord’s words as He says, “This is the way; walk in it”? Are you also preparing your family to be able to hear His clear voice in a time when many voices will be clamoring for their attention? If not, what are you going to do when you are out of answers and they are looking to you for direction?
