Thought of the Day !!

Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you."
                            Joshua 3:5 (NIV)

Joshua wanted the people to prepare themselves for a sacred event that was about to happen.  They were about to cross over the Jordan River into the Promised Land.  They had been wandering in the Wilderness for 40 years, and now was the time for something special to happen.  They were about to take the land that was to be their inheritance. 

If you knew that tomorrow God was going to perform some sacred event around you, would you do anything special to ready yourself?  Would your prayers be more plentiful...more penitent...more sincere?  Do you think that you'd clean up some things that had gotten out of hand in your life by apologizing or forgiving?  If God asked you to consecrate yourself for the "Big Event" (whatever that might be), what would you do?

Tomorrow could be the day that God performs a sacred event in your life.  It could be the day that brings you to a crossroads.  It could be the day that He blesses you with something special or gives you a specific calling that will change your life.  It could even be the biggest of events...the day that Jesus comes back.  As Christians we believe that Jesus not only died and was resurrected, but that He will come again in glory.  Tomorrow could be that day!  Who knows?

Since we don't actually know if tomorrow will bring a sacred event or not, maybe the lesson for us is to simply consecrate ourselves, or ready ourselves, for whatever God might decide to do in our lives.  It might be HUGE!  And it might be small.  But anything that God does is important.  So let us ready ourselves for God, expecting Him to do something each day.  And if we do this...He just might exceed our expectations.

In the love of Christ,
