Who are you? Who am I ?

[John the Baptist] said: “ I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.”

John 1:23

Who am I ? John the Baptist did not hesitate in answering this question. He knew exactly who he was, he was not confused. He stated: “I am the voice.” He did not stutter, he did not have to think about it. He immediately knew and answered: “ I am the voice.”

Can you answered the question: Who are you? Who am I? Without hesitating, without a doubt, without confusion? I am not sure that I can answer: Who am I? without hesitation. Sometimes, I do not think I know myself who I am. Who am I in relation to God? I know in my heart I am a child of God, a daughter of the most high.

“The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”

Isaiah 40:3

What does it mean to prepare the way of the Lord? How do we go about preparing ourselves for the Lord? To prepare the way of the Lord is to prepare the way of holiness. We need to prepare our hearts for the coming Jesus Christ. We prepare the way of Jesus Christ the same way John the Baptist did centuries ago. By doing the following:

  1. Feeling godly sorrow for sin.
  2. Confessing and forsaking sins.
  3. Making amends, where possible, for wrongs done.
  4. Obeying the commandments.
  5. Turning to the Lord and serving him.

We should be encouraging, Informing, and inspiring others and ourselves to build up our faith and connect or reconnect with God. Let us use our energy to demonstrate God’s love to others, create peace, make a positive impact on those around us.

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”

Luke 3:4

God felt it important for us to prepare the way. He emphasized it by repeating several times throughout the Bible that we should prepare the way of the Lord and make his paths straight. When something is repeated over and over, it means we should pay attention and do what it is telling us to do.

Making his path straight is to clear all obstacles out of the way. We need to seek to live our lives for the glory of God, above anything else.

“ Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on you own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”

Proverbs 3:5,6

When we trust in Jesus and let him guide us through our journey of life we will be following the path He has prepared for us. We should not hesitate to let others know about our Lord and Savior. We should not need to hesitate in letting others know we are children of God ( I am a child of God, the most high King).

God Bless. Do you know who you are? Let others know. Prepare the way of the Lord. Trust God in all things. Thank you! Remember I appreciate y’all.
