"Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;" Luke 3:5
IN JESUS TODAY!
When we come to Jesus there are four things that happen in our lives to prepare us in the way of the Lord. First, "every valley shall be filled": the low spots in our life and the empty places in our heart are filled. Jesus fills our heart with peace and joy in the places where our heart was once empty and void. All of the low times in our life are soon forgotten and replaced with hope for the future, Second, "every mountain and hill shall be brought low": What seemed to us before as impossible to climb or too much to bear, Jesus brings truth and reveals to us the power that we have in him to overcome our difficulties, i.e. "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me."
The impossible mountains are no longer impossible, the huge heights are no longer so high that we can't manage to climb them, third, "the crooked shall be made straight": God's truth takes the deceit away, what was once unclear and crooked is revealed to us so that we now can see straight. Our ways are no longer bent before us and we now walk a straight path, "Straight is the way and narrow is the path that leadeth unto righteousness", all the lies are gone and truth prevails in our life! And finally, "the rough ways shall be made smooth": where before we were kicking against the pricks, resisting God's ways, and it then presented us with many hardships, now the hardships are quickly made into a smooth path and a life of peace as Jesus takes control.
"Prepare ye the way of the Lord and these four will bring to your life the greatest contentment, God's desire for us, and gift to all who believe on him. Receive Jesus today and allow him to work in your life!
