ready to go

There is always a first time, and these words record the first time that the nation of Israel dismantled their tabernacle, and set out as a nation to their next destination. Every group had its purpose, and the transport worked as designed. It took a great deal of planning and training to get this mobile nation going.

Christianity is a mobile nation as well. When God signals for us to go, we need to be prepared for the next satge of his plan.

LORD, make us ready to go where you want us to go next.
