When God begins to work powerfully, He starts in those that seek Him with their whole heart. Preparedness comes as we seek the face of God through prayer and His Word. When God promises something, that does not guarantee it will come about, but rather He requires someone to partner with him in the process. He looks for an open and receptive heart in order to bring about what He wants to accomplish on earth. Just as Joshua went in to possess the land, so must God’s people go in to possess His promises.
