Preparing Yourself — Getting ready for a divine encounter
PRAYER FOCUS — Repentance and Cleansing
Scriptures for Meditation — Joshua 3:1-5; Psalm 66:18
Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.”Jos 3:5
From the passage of scripture that we read above, we see how important this is to God, as He readies the children of Israel to cross into the Promised Land — His instruction to them through Joshua, was to demand for them to sanctify themselves, so that they may be positioned to experience the amazing things that He was about to do in their lives.
That is the same instruction that God is giving us today, as we prepare to have a divine encounter with Him at our Retreat gathering.
Practically, sanctification demands that we have to confront and deal with the sins in our lives, and to become clean vessels for Him to use. However, the meaning of this command goes even deeper —
It also means to compose our minds and hearts to hear from God, and position ourselves to obey Him and surrender to His will.
How Do We Do This?
Spotlit By The Word
Filtered By His Spirit
Moulded By His Will
This means to clear our lives of clutter, and make room for God to fill us up with His Spirit and to mould us by His Will. That is the ultimate aim of our sanctification!
“Hear me, Levites! Now sanctify yourselves, sanctify the house of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry out the rubbish from the holy place.”
