More important than physical preparation is spiritual preparation. That’s because nobody knows what’s going to happen in the future. We can speculate; but we can’t foretell.
Furthermore, even if we knew what the future held, we wouldn’t know exactly how to prepare. We wouldn’t be able to anticipate every possible scenario and circumstance. You see, “There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 14:12)
That’s why I feel it’s so important to ask yourself: “Am I tuned in to God? Can I hear His voice and obey?”
The way I see it, nothing will be more important in the years to come than an intimate relationship with God. Only He has the vision, strength, and wisdom to see you through.
As Solomon wrote, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Provers 3:5,6)
Take some time to get to know your Creator on a more intimate level. The more you get to know Him, the more you’ll trust Him — and the more you’ll understand how completely He knows what He’s doing.
Don’t be scared. Be prepared.
