You’re Ready for This

"His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness."

2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)

You will never face anything for which God will not ensure that you are adequately prepared and significantly equipped.

I’m not saying you won’t get tired. I’m not saying you won’t get frustrated. I’m not saying you won’t get hit hard sometimes. I didn’t say that sometimes life won’t trip you up and knock you to your knees.

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They will mount up on wings like eagles, run and not get weary, walk and not faint. You can be encouraged and stay encouraged because no matter how tired you are, every day you wake up, God is bringing daily bread to you. Every day, He supplies your needs according to Hs riches in glory. Every day, He’s got fresh manna. Every day, He’s got fresh anointing. Every day, He’s got fresh favor. Every day, He’s securing the hedge around you. Every day, He’s answering your prayers. Every day, He gives you wings like the eagles’ so that you can soar.

Don’t panic about the trouble you face. He’s already worked it out. All you have to do is walk it out, because He has worked it out. You walk it; He’ll work it. And if you walk by faith, you’ll discover that He’s had the plan synchronized all along. Your steps have been ordered.

God’s timing is a testimony to His eternality. He synchronizes events to make sure that nothing hits you for which you are not ready. You are always adequately prepared, as long as your faith is connected, healthy, and strong, and your convictions are deep in the soul. Your God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all you could ask or think.

These are perilous times we are living in, but that doesn’t matter. They are also the best of times if we live in the knowledge that our God is never going to leave us nor forsake us. He’s promised to be with us always, even to the end of age.

So live life today in the knowledge that you are prepared to handle whatever comes your way, thanks to Him.
