Getting ready for a move of God in my life in 2012 …

1 Corinthians 14:8 NIV Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?

Let me sound a call. Who knows when God might just turn up and move in a new way in our lives.

In many respects His timing and His place are His choice. However, we can do something to position ourselves for a move of God.

We need to always be ready. Let’s get ready.

In the bible the girls with lamps at a wedding were strongly urged to be ready, with their lamps filled with oil. Isaiah exhorts us to make a way for the coming Lord. We are to make a path straight for the coming of Christ into our lives.

The size of a forthcoming wave of God in our lives is determined by the depth of the river we have created. We must dig deep in our dealings with God, in our prayer, in the Word in our expectation.

A soldier will spend hours polishing his shoes until his face shines in it, not for combat but to please his Commanding Officer. What are we doing today to please our ‘Commanding Officer’ and get ready for Him to move in a fresh wave over our lives.
