Dress Rehearsal

“Let the words of my mouth and meditations of my heart be acceptable in Your sight.”
I was listening to a crisis manager explain why training is so important. He said when a crisis hits, adrenaline starts flowing to focus the body on the event. Without going into great detail, he said adrenaline shuts down one part of the brain while heightening another.
In this case, the part that stores ingrained habits kicks into high gear during a crisis. This is why those who deal with such instances constantly train and why athletes mentally rehearse their routines.
I immediately thought of meditation. God tells us to repeatedly think about a truth He gives us before we actually need it. As we mentally rehearse this biblical truth, we’re preparing ourselves to love Jesus by following Him in any given situation.
Dress rehearsals take place before the play goes public. The time to mentally rehearse scripture is before you need it. So what are you waiting for, what truth is the Spirit asking you to meditate on?
