be prepared… to stop…

The call to stop… and pray… intercede on behalf of others… has me thinking…

His Word… it says…

…be prepared in season and out of season…
2Timothy 4:2
…in season… when conditions are favorable…
… out of season… when conditions are unfavorable…
Be prepared… to… stop…
when it’s convenient…
when it’s not convenient…
when it fits easily into your plan…
when it seems completely unreasonable…
Be prepared… to stop… when He calls…
You don’t know what the eternal impact might be…
I just heard of a man I know who died…
a possible suicide…
And I wonder… Did He call someone… to stop…? to intercede…? but the conditions weren’t favorable…?

I don’t know…
But I do know… it was not convenient for me to stop… to walk through a garden… and pray…
I know… I could have made excuses… justified not stopping… hardened my heart… and moved on… I actually tried to…
I’m glad He continued to press…
hold me to my desire… for my days to be His…
both in season…
and out of season…
You just don’t know… what difference it may make…
So… give Him your days…
Be prepared… mentally… emotionally… spiritually… to stop…
in season… and out of season…
Father God… I give You this day…
let it be… Your day… Your way…
Hold me to my desire… to be prepared…
to stop… at Your call…

What steps… do you need to take… to be prepared… to stop…?
