I didn’t think about it, I just supposed that today is one more day in my daily routine. I am wrong.
It’s another day of preparation. I need to recognize what is going on. Much of the time I don’t. The stories of Joseph, Esther, and David alerted me to the fact that God is actively preparing me for service.
In some cases we’re serving now, but God continues to prepare us because there is something else for us to do and we must be prepared for it. Preparation is constant. God is busy all the time, even when we’re asleep.
This is the fun part of being a follower of Jesus. Well, actually, sometimes it’s not fun at all. It isn’t fun to be falsely accused. (Joseph) It isn’t fun to be despised. (Esther) It isn’t fun to be mocked. (David) But afterward, preparation can be a fun experience, can’t it?
Today is different from yesterday and it’s different from tomorrow, because everyday is preparing us to accomplish something new and different. This is key.
