God was about to do a mighty work before His people. They were about to see the swollen banks of the Jordan River become dry. They were about to cross through a dry riverbed as their parents had done forty years before as they passed through the Red Sea to escape Pharaoh’s army. But they had to do something first. They had to consecrate themselves. Why? Because if their minds and hearts were not ready, not open to consider the glory of God, they would miss it, even if it was right in front of their faces. Doubt it? Go back and look at what happened to their parents in the Book of Exodus. Time after time, they had seen God’s mighty hand work only to miss it because they were not in the right heart posture to receive it.
And the same can be true of us. We too need to consecrate ourselves day by day, moment by moment. God is at work all around us everyday, but will we see it?
What are some ways you can consecrate yourself each day to see what God is doing and follow Him?
