Prepare Ye The Way

Prepare Ye The Way…

One of the most famous verses in Scripture is Isaiah 40: “Prepare the way for the Lord.” It doesn’t say “Prepare a place for the Lord.” It says, “Prepare the way for the Lord.”

The difference is a place is limited, it comes to an end; but a way goes on and on. Too often we prepare God a place, but not a way. We give Him time for worship, events, and experiences.

But spaces end – the Sunday high stops and you have a Monday morning low. But the key of a life for blessing isn’t to prepare God places to fill, but to prepare Him a way. A way is a space that keeps going – a “derech” in Hebrew means a path, a lifestyle, a way of life.

You need to turn those holy spaces at Worship Service into godly ways that go right through Monday – for blessings of God must need to flow… Give them a derech, a life of holiness, and joy.

Then your innermost being will well up with a river of life when you obey the command and prepare for the Lord, a derech, a way, in your life.

As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: “A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.” Luke 3:4

Think of some action steps that you can take today to “prepare the way for the Lord”.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
