“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” II Corinthians 1:20 NKJV
Welcome to the 49th weekly devotional recap of the year. This week, we learned how to prepare for a camp meeting.
We started the week by learning how to prepare for a camp meeting through prayers. Preparation starts in the place of prayer. Beyond planning for feeding and accommodation, create a prayer plan. Pray that the eyes of your understanding are enlightened (Ephesians 1:16), for more people come to know Christ, that every minister teaches boldly and every worker is strengthened. With prayer, you can prepare your heart for the meeting.
Tuesday’s article instructed us to prepare for victory. You must pray with conviction and an expectation that your prayers will be answered. Refuse to be distracted or to give room for doubts. Set your expectations and believe that you have victory (II Corinthians 2:14).
Wednesday’s devotional taught us how to prepare for prophecies. Every word of prophecy is certain (Joshua 21:45, Psalm 119:89), showing us possibilities in the Spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:20). The Bible instructs us not to despise prophecies. We must believe and hold firmly to them. We must pray, in order to align ourselves to prophecies, and rejoice in faith that we will receive all that God has said.
We took the series on how to prepare for a camp meeting, a notch higher on Thursday when we learnt about preparing for miracles. We were taught to expect miracles, to be eager to receive them and to have no room for doubt in our hearts. From the example of the woman with the issue of blood (Mark 5:25-34), we emphasized the need to be unwavering and relentless in our faith in the miraculous.
Finally on Friday, we were taught to prepare for testimonies. We can trust God to keep to His word. Get anxiety out of the way and build conviction in God’s ability to exceed your expectations (1 Peter 5:7). If God said it and you believe it, that settles it.
Our anchor scripture tells us that God’s word is yes and Amen. He can be trusted. Ensure that you pray, write out your expectations, believe and get ready to testify, because you will. Glory to God!
