 "His going forth is prepared as the morning"  Hosea 6:3

Prepared...a picture of God arising as the sun over the darkness of the night.

Prepared...a Vision we need in our day. this broken day of ours where the old order of things is falling apart, and the new is as yet unknown and unproved, and we suspect its ability to bring about the change we need.

Everything around us is clothed in uncertainty but God's plans are as certain as the morning.
    His Coming is certain,
        His Working is certain,
            His Triumph is certain.

God wants us to Look from our broken world and see Him Ruling and Working in the midst of the years of our lives.
He desires us to see beyond the Shadows, the Obscurity and the Dungeon.

Prepared...God is ready to bring to pass all His work in us, and through us
Our lives were meant to be a day by day unveiling of that which He gives...without impediment, "a morning without clouds.''

Can we ask Him to roll away the clouds and show us the Clear Shining in all its glory...and not be satisfied until we find ourselves seeing only His Light, knowing only His working in our lives?

Today...if ye will hear His voice.

Today..."yesterday's gone, and tomorrow may never be mine".

Does my response to God today correspond to the measure of what He gives to me?

In our world everything, always, is given by measure.
We give in a measure which corresponds to our estimation of the worth of things.
In God's world there can be no measuring - with God a thing is either of eternal worth or it is worthless.

Time is a thing, a thing to be "redeemed" (bought back).
Bought back from the time which our trivial world of man demands of us.
Bought back from our internet, our television, and all our time wasting activities.

The time redeemed becomes for us a part of eternity;
a part of the kingdom of God.

We move out from our things to the Presence of the One Who is eternal.

We move into that eternity which is not merely length of days, but an eternity as broad and as high and as deep as it is long.

We come to the sphere of the infinite, where God can begin to teach us of Himself, of His purposes, of His promises, and that all things "in Him are yea and in Him amen."

How can we hear?

How can we hear?

When there are so many voices c
When so many clueless writers flood us with so many clueless words?
When so many who try to enlighten us are themselves living in shadows?

Let us Live this year in fulness of Life.
Let us Live by shutting ourselves off from the world around - from its humdrum existence and its insistent clamor.

Let us concentrate all our attention to find that which is not of this world, to find in God a Living Fountain, a Quickening Flame and a faith which will triumph day by day by day.
