Say to the nations far and wide: “Get ready for war! Call out your best warriors. Let all your fighting men advance for the attack” (Joel 3:9).

The word of God is everlasting and powerful. Have you ever noticed when you are reading scripture that a verse written in context thousands of years ago also speaks directly to your heart today? This passage in Joel is directed towards the enemies of God, but it also serves as a reminder to us today. We should always be ready! Ready for whatever the Lord has next for us.

Let God open your eyes to His plans and purposes for you in the world. With God on your side, you are full of strength, full of wisdom, full of “can do attitude” power. There is nothing in your future that you cannot accomplish. Open the eyes of your heart today. Stand alert. Take the limits off your thinking! Get rid of the words “I can’t,” I’m not able to,” “That’s too big for me,” God has already equipped you with everything you need to make a difference, to leave your personal seal.
