Thoughts of Devotion:
This morning God is ready to do everything that He has promised to our lives. The best days of our lives are ahead of us! Days in which God will do wonders and miracles in our midst. In Exodus 15:11, it is declared, “Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, Fearful in praises, doing wonders?” We can already feel the spiritual atmosphere and a powerful move of God in our midst. The Holy Spirit is positioning everything in place in preparation for the glorious things that are to come in our future.
Realizing this truth, the question is, are you ready to experience all that God has prepared for your future? The Holy Spirit is speaking to our lives, today we must be prepared and ready for everything God promised us in 2016. It is for this reason that Joshua had to declare this to the people and his warning was clear, consecrate yourselves, because tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you! We have to be spiritually ready, we should consecrate our lives, if we really want to see the best that is to come.
There is no time to waste, today is the day to separate ourselves and read His Word, fast and pray as we have never done before. We cannot loss the opportunity that lies before us. God’s time is now! God’s clock is already running, and all that remains is for us to prepare for the new day that is in front of us. It will only be through our consecration that we will be prepared to receive the move of God in our midst. Days are coming where we will witness miracles, wonders and a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit as we have never experienced never before. We must only position ourselves for all that is to come!
