Today is Your Best Day Because of Preparation

But now, O LORD, Thou art our father; we are the clay, and Thou our potter; and we all are the work of Thy hand. Isaiah 64:8 KJV

Like clay in the hands of a skilled craftsman, God is forming you for His purposes, shaping you for His plans, and molding you as a vessel fit for the Master's use. The vessel He is shaping you into will have no errors in its design. Do not think that your vessel needs to be a certain shape or size to be significant.
  • God may shape you into a tiny vessel that can easily be used to pour oil into the wounds of others;
  • He may shape you as a candle and place you in a dark place to shine for Him;
  • He may shape you into a cup to bring living water to a thirsty soul;
  • He may shape you into a handheld basin that can humbly be used to wash a disciple's feet.
God is using you today and is fulfilling His perfect plan for your life, and at the same time, He is also preparing you for what He has ahead. God is preparing you for a prepared place, a prepared ministry, and for a prepared people that He wants you to reach. God will use various things in your life for His preparation, even the things that are unpleasant:
  • He used the desert to prepare Moses;
  • He used opposition to prepare Jacob;
  • He used slavery to prepare Joseph;
  • He used famine to prepare Gideon;
  • He used persecution to prepare Paul;
  • He used isolation to prepare John.
Nothing about your day is being wasted. You are in God's capable, loving, skillful hands, and you are living under His constant watch-care. He knows how to perfectly prepare you for what He has ahead.
  • He is teaching you so you can respond to His voice and learn the importance of quick obedience;
  • He is testing your faith so you can learn how to trust Him completely in the battles of life:
  • He is disciplining you so you can stand tall as you march under His banner;
  • He is building your character so you can represent Him as His witnesses to a lost and needy world.
