Today was our final mission meeting before we set off on Monday. I cannot believe that in 3 days we will be on our way to Haiti. For our final preperation meeting meeting today we packed up all of our ministry things together. All the instruments, VBS material and medical items.
After we did all that we went through final touches in our skits and worship songs. Now we are completely finished with all of our preparations. But God gave me a very powerful revelation today.
Even though all of our physical and external things are prepared we are not finished preparing our hearts. Just because we are done packing our bags and memorizing skits and songs doesn’t mean we are done and ready to go. Because none of these mean anything if our hearts aren’t in the right place.
So God has encouraged me not just relax and wait until Monday but rather be even more diligent in getting my heart in the right place. Ultimately it’s not our preparations that will be the factor in our ministries, but God. Missions is about following God and His lead rather than doing what we desire. It’s not about about fitting everything to match our plans but for us to fit into God’s plans. The only way we can do that is if our hearts are aligned with His.
I saw God today.
