Stay ready!

From the desk of Savannah J

I work night shift in a hospital in my area. We have been getting ready for a visit from the group that certifies hospitals. It's quite an undertaking and there is also much tension in the air; so much so that I even found myself caught up.

As we worked hard to prepare and make sure we were not only polished, but spit shined, I commented to a co-worker, if we stayed ready, we wouldn't have to go through all of this. It's a lot like our homes, if we keep them tidy, we don't have to worry about someone stopping by unannounced. When we keep our cars clean and neat, we don't have to feel embarrassed if we have to give someone a ride unexpectedly. This started me thinking on our spiritual walk.

In reading the Word, it clearly states that we should stay ready for Christ's return at all times. Now, I don't believe God expects us to live in a box in order to accomplish this. After all the Word says, God gives us "richly all things to enjoy." (1 Timothy 6:17) I just think He wants us to live our lives for Him and give our all and in doing this, He will guide us in the way of Holiness and in our spiritual walk. 

Staying ready means reading our Bibles so that we have a personal relationship with God. It's spending time in prayer and listening for His voice; being good stewards over our finances and loving others the way God loves us. Of course there is so much more but I believe it begins simply with the a fore mentioned things. We make it so much more complicated than it really is to have a walk with God the Father.

He loves us despite ourselves; He is patient with us and stands ready to defend us at all times. God's Word is the blue-print for us to follow on a daily basis to have a stay-ready relationship with Him. In doing that we stay ready for anything that comes our way. We are ready for spiritual warfare because we have our spiritual armour  on. And we have our spiritual amour on because we are prayed up and armed with His Word. 

I don't know about you, but I plan from now on to stay ready. I find that thought so much easier than running around like a chicken without a head trying to clean up and prepare for an unexpected visit. Until we meet again, stay ready!

Ciao!

Savannah J
