Prepare the Way

Luke 3:4 “Prepare the way for the Lord’s coming! Clear the road for him!” The concept of behavioral design increasingly fascinates me, and I’ve optimized my morning routine to have a clear head and heart when I start my quiet time with God. This morning I had an early call, so I rolled out of bed, jumped on Zoom, and afterwards found myself processing random requests for an hour before getting my day going. Needless to say, I did not feel clear headed. Thankfully I had the space to get centered, and God did eventually speak to me on a few things, but one of those was that I need to defend not just the quiet time, but the preparation for the quiet time like it’s a matter of life or death. In Luke 3, John the Baptist quotes Isaiah in saying calling all people to clear the way for Jesus’ arrival, which was a standard practice for Kings when they travelled in those days. Dear Father, the truth is that every day I have the opportunity to prepare the way for the King of Kings to enter into my heart. I thank you for that amazing gift, and for speaking to me on the need to take this seriously. I’m on it and I love you. In your son’s name, Amen.
