Get ready for tomorrow
A small boy asked an aged sailor, “What is the wind?” The old man replied, “I don’t know, son; I can’t tell you what the wind is, but I can tell you how to hoist a sail.”
It is not really necessary to know all about the wind if we know how to set our sails. We simply make them ready, and let the wind come.
This is what we are doing in a worship service-setting our sails for whatever gale the tomorrows may bring. Here, as it were, we adjust the wind-catching paraphernalia of our lives. Then we will be ready for life’s gentle zephyrs or its howling storms. Here we align ourselves, set ourselves right with reality, and then, whatever winds may blow, we can receive their forward-thrusting force and sail on.
This is what the LORD says in Psalm 50:14-15. Today worship the LORD with thanksgiving. Praise the LORD with all your heart today. And then, when you are in trouble, call unto the LORD and HE will deliver you and you will glorify Him again.
Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High, and call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall honor and glorify Me. (AMP)
Have you worshipped the LORD today?
2 Chronicles 7:14 “If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
