Good morning! Yesterday God showed me something that I wanted to share with you all. About 3:30 in the afternoon or so, I looked out of my office window as the afternoon storms were about to rush into the area. You could see the darkening clouds and the wind shift direction, so you knew that a good one was on the way. As I looked upon the rushing clouds, I also noticed people running out to their cars to put up their windows or their convertible tops in preparation for the rain. All that entered my Spirit was how small we really are; how at the drop of a hat our entire day can be changed by an event that our Creator uses to keep life going on this planet. The other thing God showed me was how this is an example of how we need to prepare for something much more eventful than an afternoon rain.
See my friends, God has given us our freedom for now, but the storm clouds are just on the horizon; there is a day coming where your choice to live for Him will be over and He will give you what you desire. He will either give you an eternity filled with love, beauty and eternal happiness, or a eternity without Him filled with suffering and the realization that you are forever alone. Yesterday, some of my co-workers prepared for the rain by running to their cars; I ask you this morning, how are you preparing for the storm of all storms? The return of our King! It’s not about religion and its different customs, its not even about how many times you went to church or how many “spiritual posts” you put on Facebook. Instead, its about a real relationship with the One that gave His only Son Jesus so you could be absolved of your past, present, and future sin and give you an eternal life…a true life. What this day will be your desire? How will prepare for the storm?
