Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"Get ready. Get set. Go!" These words from our childhood are significant for us today as we seek to do God's will. God wants us to be ready. But all the personal preparation in the world will not make a difference if we have not dedicated and consecrated ourselves to do what we do to glorify God. What plans do you have for this next year? What plans do you have for tomorrow? What plans do you have for today? Before we "Get set." and "Go!" let's "Get ready." by dedicating ourselves to the Lord and his work!

My Prayer...

Father of Mercies, I recognize that my plans and my ways are not necessarily your plans or your ways. Please help me as I dedicate myself to reading Scripture, listening to Scripture for your will, and following the lead of your Holy Spirit. I want to honor you in all I do and dedicate my efforts to your glory, honor, and praise. In the name of Jesus, my Savior and Lord, I pray and praise you, Father. Amen.
