Prepare Your Feet

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’”

– Isaiah 52:7

In addition to equipping our minds, hearts, and hands for action, the fourth and final thing we should do to proactively move from a place of waiting to preparation is to ready our feet. Just as Jewish worshippers cleansed their legs and feet during Mikvah as a symbolic way of asking the Lord to guide their coming and going, we should listen to His voice before we commence or stop any forward motion. When I was in college, I had a spiritual mentor teach me to pray every day, “Lord, please let me be in the right place at the right time doing the right things with the right people.” And though it seemed simple then, I sincerely believe this posture of heart has kept me in the center of God’s will through the years. There’s something about being willing to go when He says go and stay when He says stay that affords an abundance of divine peace and spiritual prosperity. In fact, I believe our readiness to surrender our own desires and follow His lead, even when it doesn’t make sense, positions us to receive showers of blessing in our future. While many people have the right mind, heart, and behaviors, few are willing to swiftly move when He speaks, and this often makes all the difference.

My friend, position yourself to follow your Good Shepherd’s voice along the path of divine peace, and He will faithfully lead you into the fullness of His good plan and purpose. While knowing what you should do is important, the surest way to inherit your Savior’s best is take action when He speaks. If he says to do it, then do it, and if He says to stop, then stop. Because He sees the beginning from the end, He knows what’s right for you, and since you are His priceless, precious, and beloved child, His way always leads to an abundant and overflowing life.

Prayer


Jesus, prepare my feet to move whenever you tell me to, and help me to stay put until that time.

Reflection


Will you move when the Holy Spirit speaks?

    Right now.It is not an appropriate time for me to go back to the lector ministry at St Catherine of Siena Catholic Church.It is still a dangerous situation out there and now is not the time to let our guard down. With these different strains of Covid 19. And people congregating. Who knows what will happen. So that’s why I’m not taking any chances risking my own health and also of my sister because with her being on oxygen.Any germ she gets could be fatal. I want to lay low as much as possible until the curve levels are flat.I hope that God will forgive me for not obeying one of his commandments.
