In preparing our way before the Lord we become "vessels" for honor prepared for every good work that the Lord has in mind.
But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. 2 Timothy 2:20-21
Once the Lord uses us we become mighty, just like Jotham. The more we are used the more mighty we become. The way we are used is backward to what most of the world practices.
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. Matthew 23:11
Like usual, GOD first, others second, us last. That order is GOD's way for us. Life is tough; no question about it, but it is hard to squirm that much about problems and trials when our main thoughts and efforts are centered on GOD and those around us.
Are you prepared to face life's difficult questions? Are you prepared to conquer the foes of life that will beset you in the future? If not, begin preparing yourself today. Get to know GOD. Read His word. Prepare your way before the Creator of the universe.
While you are preparing your way before the Lord, God has and is prepared a home in heaven for those who prepare their ways before Him.
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Matthew 25:34
