Counted Worthy. July 6
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the son of man. Luke 21:36
While we all have plenty to pray for and much to do. Thank God for these opportunities. But always remember to be prepared for the Lords return at any moment. Jesus said to pray that we would be counted worthy to be with him on that great day. Pray for yourself and also those we love and care for, that we be worthy to go and be with him on that great day. It is easy to get distracted by all the activities. There’s an old saying “sleep with one eye open” it is used as an expression to be ready for someone or something, even in the night. Well you and I should do all we do with “ one eye towards the sky”. Meaning always have upon your heart, even if you are busy in body and mind, the Lord May come for me today. So as we go about our day, we can be whispering, Lord count us worthy to be with you, if today is the day. These instructions of Jesus is particularly true as we sense the times approaching. Today and everyday be watchful, on guard against anything that may pull you from fellowship with God. These can even be good things that are taken to far. And be waiting for our Lords return, don’t grow cold or insensitive during the wait. Continue to love God, and serve him however he leads us. One thing is certain. Our redemption is one day closer than it was yesterday, so be on guard. Watching for his return for you.
