Get Yourself READY!!! - Jeremiah 1:17-19

Greetings! 

BlogFam as I write this post, I, along with men and women from around the country,  are just over halfway through our 21 day commitment to fast and pray to seek and to see God's VISION for our lives! The MY VISION FAST is an opportunity to focus on seeing God, seeing yourself,  and seeing clearly what God has created you to do and be in this season and in your life. It is in large part a time of intentional preparation to gain clarity about what your next right step must be in order to fulfill the purpose(s) for which you were created.

I am convinced that too many of us want the assignment (Vision) of God without the instructions of God. We want to know the ultimate end but we don't want to take the time to go and grow through the process to prepare ourselves for that end.  This is an unfortunate and lazy attitude to have.  It is unfortunate because lack of intentional preparation reveals a lack of maturity necessary for your spiritual and intellectual development that will aid in accurately attempting and completing your Godly assignment.  It is lazy because lack of intentional preparation also discloses the time that you have wasted in advance of this divine assignment to get your life, relationships, finances, and any other area of your life ready for this new call.

But BlogFam it is not too late! (I hope) 

For today we are reminded in the call story of the Prophet Jeremiah...

17“Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them.
18 Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land.
19 They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
[Jeremiah 1:17-19]

BlogFam, GET YOURSELF READY!!! In light of these verses and what I have already shared, I do not know what more to add to this directive from the Lord to the Prophet and I believe to us as well.

GET YOURSELF READY!

You can only go so far without intentional preparation.  And yes the Lord can make us ready in ways that we might not be able to see until after the fact. However, do not miss the grace that has been extended to each of us to willingly avail ourselves to be made ready by God so that when the time comes, we can stand up and say/do whatever the Lord commands AND we will NOT be afraid!!!

BlogFam, GET YOURSELF READY! 

  • What do you need to do? 
  • Where do you need to go?
  • How much more do you need of whatever it is you think you need?
  • Are you in the right place spiritually or physically or financially, etc.?
  • When will you start to get yourself ready?
  • What excuses do you need to let go of in order to remove the mental and emotional blocks to your own progress? 
  • What is your next right step? 


Friends, I invite you to take a few minutes on today asking the Lord about the ways that you need to get ready for what's next in your life. I invite you to be open to whatever the Lord's instructions are to you and trust that everything you are going through right now will in some way work TOGETHER for your good.  I invite you to be mindful of the creative ways our God will fortify you so that whatever you are called to face or endure will not overwhelm or overcome you!  I invite you to rely on God to rescue from any person, place, or thing that might seek to distract or destroy you! 

BlogFam,  GET YOURSELF READY! 
And know that our God has been,  is, and will be with you EVERY step of the way!

God Loves You and I Do too! 
Delesslyn
