Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ~1 Peter 1:13
So, because of all the things that God has done for us (see 1 Peter 1:1-12), we ought to diligently prepare ourselves for our daily walk, because its tough...not to wander about aimlessly and without Godly direction as we serve Him...and to look forward to all that He is going to do for us even though we are undeserving.
God gives me such clear direction...when I remember to ask Him for it. James tells us that He gives wisdom liberally to whomever desires it. Boy, do I need wisdom!
