“Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.
Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.”
– Luke 3:4-6
The Lord is coming soon, His arrival is imminent…and we would do well to prepare ourselves spiritually for this great event. We need to fill the deep and dark valleys of our heart; level the cold mountains of our ego; straighten what’s crooked in us; and smoothen all that’s rough and unbecoming.
If we stop and humbly ask the Holy Spirit to totally take over and to melt us and mould us, He will fill us and renew us. With His divine grace, and our eager cooperation, He will purify our soul through a new interior conversion.
The Holy Spirit will help us prepare ourselves well for the coming of the Lord, our God – our King!
I want to be ready for the Lord when He comes.
I want to prepare myself for Him,
and make myself presentable
– not just externally, but especially internally.
Come, Holy Spirit, and take over all that I am.
Change me and make me fit for the King.
Come, Holy Spirit.
