Get Prepared

This morning, I woke up and read some of Lysa Terkerust’s book, “Becoming More Than A Good Bible Study Girl.”  The chapter was a great parallel to my post yesterday on getting into a morning routine and I wanted to share a little excerpt:

“When I take the time to meet with Jesus each morning, I am prepared to face life with much more peace than if I just rush into my day without Him.

Because God is able to stand in my yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and He knows things and sees things for which I need to be prepared.  I love how the psalmist expresses this truth: “O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.  You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.  Before a word is even on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord” (Psalm 139:1-4).  

The Lord perceives the thoughts we’ll think and the words we’ll speak in response, and He wants to prepare us, interrupt us, and maybe even rearrange us.  He loves us enough to desire to protect us from our natural-flesh.”
