Practice = Preparation

practiceIt’s been said that heroes are just regular everyday people who do the right thing when others do not. The question naturally arises, “Would I be a hero? Would I act like Daniel before he went into the lions den? Or David with Goliath?” We all hope we would.
How do we know though? The only answer is, do it now. If you are practicing listening to and following Jesus everyday everywhere now, you’ll be prepared to do it later. If you want to pass the big test on Friday, you must prepare for it on Monday.
As you practice using your biblical tools you will have trained your brain with the truth and your will to exercise that truth with the Spirit’s power. In other words, your character will have been replaced with Jesus’. Did His pass the big test at Gethsemane? It sure did as He said, “Not My will, but Yours.” Jesus didn’t all of a sudden make that decision. He had been making it everyday everywhere He went, “I do nothing on My own but speak just what the Father has taught Me.” He’d been preparing for the big test long before it ever came.
We know from Scripture that challenges will come our way, some a little bigger and harsher than others. The way to prepare for the challenges of tomorrow is to practice using our biblical tools today. Keep practicing and getting better at filtering out all the other voices, including your own, to keep hearing and following His.
