Being prepared could be as simple as increasing your capacity to receive. Once, several years ago, I received a prophecy that God was taking me into a time of pressing in to Him, a time of fasting and prayer and that I was to prepare myself to receive all He had for me. At the time, I thought ‘that’s silly; I am ready for whatever God wants to pour on me.’ What I later learned was that the things God wanted to give me were much bigger than I was prepared to receive and I had to enlarge my capacity to receive. My faith was at level 6 and He wanted to give me level 20 blessings ~ so my faith had to increase to receive it. Think about it, if you are going to give your child a bicycle for Christmas, you won’t try to put it in a shirt box will you? Of course not ~ you will have to get something large enough to contain it. Faith and blessings work the same way, your faith has to be large enough to receive your blessings. So, how do you enlarge your capacity to receive? Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Get in the Word of God and build up your faith, increase your faith level.

I encourage you to ask God what you need to do to prepare for what He has for you and then do it. Get prepared. Just as you would get prepared for company, prepare yourself for God to come and overwhelm you with His blessings! Do whatever it takes to make all things ready ~ because He desires to come and do mighty works in your life ~ are you ready for that? There is a scripture that tells us to be instant (or prepared) in season and out of season. It means to be ready when the opportunity arrives…don’t let His blessings pass you by…get ready and stay ready. His eyes are going to and fro across the earth, looking for someone to show Himself strong on their behalf…let that someone be you…let Him see that you are ready, prepared and standing firm on His Word. He won’t let you down and He won’t pass you by.
