Importance of Teamwork
What Does a Life Coach Do?

Prepare the Way

"The Lord God has given Me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary.  He wakes Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to hear as the learned." (Isaiah 50:4-5 NKJV)

I attended a speaker training seminar this past weekend hosted by Sharon Houk, who in addition to having her own speaking ministry, is a Stonecroft Ministries Regional Speaker Trainer.  The room was filled with a range of attendees, young and old(er), experienced and not-so-experienced.  All of us were eager to pick up some speaking tips and ideas and Sharon did not disappoint.  In addition to the tips we received, we were charged to know the Truth and proclaim it based upon the foundational passage of 2 Timothy 2:2:

And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

We are all called to share the truth of God's word with others in some fashion and God will prepare the way for us to share it.  He will give us opportunities to proclaim His truth if we in our own hearts are prepared.

2 Tim 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. (NKJV)

As I sat in church on Sunday and sang the song "Prepare the Way" by Jared Anderson, I reflected upon the seminar and the importance of being who I need to be so God could do the work through me that He wants to do.   I've got a long way to go!  In spite of what my car's GPS system says, I have not arrived.   So in closing, take the time to reflect with me on a portion of the song lyrics.  Let the King of Glory enter in to your life to change you and prepare the way for you to proclaim His truth and to speak that word in season to those that are weary.  Let all who call His name prepare the way.

Prepare the way
Make straight the path for Him
Let the King of Glory enter in
Let the King of Glory enter in
Who is this King of Glory

The Lord strong and mighty
The Lord mighty to save
The earth is full of His glory
Creation calls prepare the way
His love endureth forever
His power is without an end
His strength is victory's treasure
Let all who call His name prepare the way
