”Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you." (Joshua 3:5 NIV)
I hear the garbage truck coming every Tuesday morning. It comes to haul away our rubbish. They do it for us. However, we also must do something if our rubbish from our home is to be hauled away. We gather up all our rubbish and carry it out to the garbage can prior to the garbage truck’s arrival. If we don’t do so our garbage remains in the house.
We must also regularly gather up the rubbish that’s become attached to our lives. We, in the presence of the Lord, must regularly seek into our spiritual house and sweep clean. It’s so easy to allow the small sins to remain. We become so used to their being there that we don’t notice them. But we are to carry our rubbish to Him, and He disposes of them.
A freshly cleaned house – what a feeling – both as it concerns our home and concerning our inner being. Today’s Bible verse says Consecrate yourselves, bring purity to your inner life. Do it in preparation for the infusion of the Lord’s super-natural power in your life.
Lord, if You see anything in my life that is not as it ought to be, I want to give it over to You just now in order that You cleanse me. I want to live each day in purity so that You will, with joy, share in fellowship with me in all that I do
