Preparing ourselves

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Thursday, July 5, 2012
Our Toyota FJ Cruiser is on the way! 

Over the last few weeks I have been preparing myself for the gift that I have been praying for. It might sound strange to some, but I not only asked the Lord for a new vehicle, one that would help us travel around South Africa that will be reliable and safe, and so I decided to go down to the dealership, sat in the vehicle and thanked the Lord for the vehicle. Took pictures, posted them online, took the car for a test drive and cleaned the garage out, while all the time thanking the Lord for what He has already done for us.

In the same way, I believe that we are to prepare ourselves for those things the Lord has promised, not to sit around in active, but proactively preparing our hearts for the glory that is to come. I am convinced that if God says He is going to do something that it will come to pass and so, we must, form our side, do everything in our power to ensure that we prepare ourselves so that when the promise manifests, our hearts are not overwhelmed, but joyously embrace it.   

Andi and I are more than ready to receive our car and we have done everything in our power to ensure that everything is ready to receive it. In the same way, we must prepare our hearts for the goodness of God will be poured out upon all flesh and it is no longer a matter of if this happens, but rather, when it does.

So we ought to prepare our hearts for the goodness that is to come and do so with a sincere expectancy and see ourselves as having already received the promise...

Our love for our Father

Mark Labuschagne We are a vessel set apart, cleansed, emptied, consecrated; just standing, waiting every moment for God, in Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to work out in us as much of the holiness and the life of His Son as pleases Him We worship Him only!
