Hopeful Preparation


Exodus 14:13 "And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever."


"In times of uncertainty, wait.  Always, if you have any doubt, wait.  Do not force yourself to any action.  If you have a restraint in your spirit, wait until all is clear, and do not go against it." ~Streams in the Desert


It is difficult to wait.  But the reward of obedience is always blessing.

Make yourself ready.  Complete your preparations.  Pay attention, waiting for His signal.

Then, and only when, God gives His command, go forth to accomplish your task for Him.


Luke 8:40 "And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him."


When we wait for Him, He comes – every time.  He will not disappoint us.  He will move at just the right time for His will to be accomplished through us in just the right way.

Let us not despise the waiting, but use that time to prepare our hearts for the mission ahead.
