Day 1: Prepare and Sanctify
And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you.Joshua 3:5 (KJV)
Reflection: As Joshua’s people prepared for a miracle, we, too, are called to sanctify ourselves – to purify and set ourselves apart for God’s use. This act isn’t just about cleanliness, but a spiritual readiness and willingness to receive the Lord’s blessings. As we cleanse our hearts, let’s create a dwelling place for God’s wonders to manifest.
Illustration: Consider a fresh canvas in the hands of an artist. Before it can become a masterpiece, it has to be primed, prepped, and prepared. That’s exactly how we must prepare our hearts for God’s touch.
Prayer: Lord, guide us as we seek to sanctify ourselves. Cleanse us from within and prepare us for the wonders You’re about to perform in our lives. Amen.
