Prepared and Ready

As he studied the military campaigns of Julius Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte concluded that one factor more than any other contributed to his success: how the camps of his army were organized. This produced amazing advantages.

Caesar had followed a tradition established in Rome years earlier, which provided maximum protection and readiness. In fact, for more than a thousand years, it was said that “there is no case where one of their camps was overrun.” They always seemed ready.

God gave the Israelites specific instructions about how to set up camp. Each tribe had a specific role, and everyone had an important assignment. When they did everything God commanded, they were organized and safe. It was an efficient operation.

We can be sure that each of us will face many kinds of spiritual attacks and challenges. How often might we be vulnerable because we are not ready?

If you want to be prepared for life’s battles, be sure to surrender your life to Jesus, be filled with the Spirit, and operate in His power. Fill your mind and heart with His Word, and declare His promises to be true for you. Be a person of prayer, constantly seeking His wisdom.

Be sure you are armed and ready. Be protected by the whole armor of God, so you can be “Strong in the Lord and in the power of His might” (Ephesians 6:10).
