GOD PREPARES THE WAY

Posted on October 14, 2021 at 4:55 AM

                                                                                                                                                       

This work is taken from  GPAN June 1, 2011

The following excerpt is taken from Touch The World Through Prayer by Wesley L. Duewel:

 

                     God Needs You to Help Prepare His Way

 "A voice of one calling: 'In the desert prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken'" (Is. 40:3-5).

 

Our Greatest Hope

My friends, our world is sinking into the pits of the evil one, and it is time for us to seek the only One who has the answers for our escape. He is our Lord God.  What we know fom history is that mighty works of God are done only after He has blessed adequate preparation. It is time for us to  be on our knees to pray believing ~ You, Lord, prepare us adequately for this purpose too; we trust You Almighty God.


                                                                            


God planned to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt and into their new home in Canaan. He planned to deliver them from idolatry and to make them into the people who were to receive God's revelation in the Old Testament and to be the people of the Messiah. 
 But first God had to make great preparations~

 

He prepared Moses for forty years in the desert before Moses was ready to lead Israel. Through the miracle - judgments of the plagues in Egypt, He prepared that nation to release Israel from their bondage. Through those same events, Israel was prepared to accept the truth that Jehovah alone was God. It was necessary, too, for Israel to be prepared to receive the Ten Commandments and Old Testament law. For this purpose God used their experiences between Egypt and Canaan and His revelation of Himself to Moses at Sinai.

         

                                                                     



The coming of Jesus was also carefully orchestrated...  God permitted the Greek language to become the commercial or trade language of the Mediterranean world, including Palestine and Rome, so that the New Testament in Greek could be immediately usable throughout the whole area at the dawn of the early church. Roman roads, Roman rule, and Roman peace were also used of God to expedite the spread of the Gospel. Babylonian captivity had at least cured the Jews of their repeated relapses into their besetting sin of idolatry. Christ could not come until idol worship was utterly forsaken.


                                      

  

(Highways in that day were literally elevated roads, built higher than the surrounding countryside in many places. Passes were opened through mountainous areas, rough areas were leveled, the crooked was made straight, and all impediments were removed. It was painstaking work, requiring hard labor on the part of many. But it was essential preparation for a road worthy of a king).


                                                                   

 

(Only God knows how many hidden intercessors prepared the way for Christ's first coming. Just as the intercessors of Ezra and Nehemiah enabled the Jews to return to their homeland, so heaven's honor rolls (Exod. 32:32; Ps. 56:8; 87:6; Mal. 3:36) include many names of intercessors over the centuries who prepared the way for the Incarnation. Their role will be recognized at the judgment seat of Christ (2 Cor. 5:10). Their testimonies will be shared with us and will undoubtedly be researched by the historians of eternity.)




In every great revival or time of spiritual harvest in the Christian church, history records preparation by God's people. God usually makes use of some evangelists with prophetic messages, especially just before some mighty work. But by far the greater preparation seems to be shared by many people, often in hidden places. Theirs is the preparation of prayer. Often the extent of the prayer preparation is unrealized until after God's work of power when research uncovers the true facts.


                                                                                    



So my friends God is working in our times too. We know He created all of us for a purpose, and He blessed us with talents and abilities which He will help us develop. To state a Biblical phrase: "Who knows whether you were not born for such a time as this?"  Holy Spirit has been given to us to aid us in our growth and understanding of our Purpose. Pray for His help as You find need, and know He is working in You.


This is true for all who have invited Christ to abide in, live in their hearts. If you have not done this yet, do it now. Jesus died for us a horrible death of crucifixion to pay for our sins, so we would be cleansed of ALL  our sin.


                                                                                       


He paid our debt in full. Repent of your sins and ask Jesus to come and live in you. When we invite Jesus, God’s Son, to dwell within us. we become new creations, true sons and daughters of Almighty God. All the blessings of being a part of God’s family become our inheritance. . . includes joy, peace, freedom from sin's chains, and a close relationship with Almighty God.


Please do not delay! The rewards are great!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
