I was in Noble County this week and I saw a sign that said, "God’s ready when you are."
What does it mean? If it is about salvation I know God is always ready to save a soul. If it’s about coming home I am ready when God says, "Come." Maybe it’s about serving God. Could He want me to do something more; something different?
I try to listen carefully and follow the directions that He gives; when He makes His will clear to me. I want my will, desires, and wishes to be the same as God’s will for my life.
I will watch and listen, and then if God is telling me something I won’t miss it. I will see or hear the message He is sending my way.
I have one other thought about the sign. It may not be for me. I believe at times I have tried to carry a burden, fill a need, or perform a task that was not mine at all. God had other plans. When I realized this I let go of the task or burden, leaving it for the one God intended. This also left me free to follow what God had for me. My feet belong on the path, in the way that He has designed for my life.
When God is ready for me and I see or hear what He says I want to respond quickly and without question. I have asked Him many times to make His will clear to me. I am so thankful when He answers in ways that I know are from Him, and for me.
It’s a blessing to know that I am ready when God is.
