“I know your works. You have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God.” Revelation 3:1b-2 (ESV)
You thought you’re awake but you are actually dead! What an eye-opening moment! Can you imagine the shock, the horror of hearing such a statement from a messenger of God? And all awhile you believed you were fine!
There have been times when I have rolled over in the middle of the night and a heavy thing lands on my chest! Shocked, I discover that it was my arm that had fallen asleep. I was asleep, but my arm was REALLY asleep! Even when I woke up my arm had to regain circulation. You know, pins and needles stuff! And it hurts!
The Holy Spirit is waking up the remnant. He is moving through the body looking for ones who will respond. Even those who are waking up need to be fully awakened, arms and all! This awakening may require a rude awakening first, and some pain!
Join me today in praying for the alarm clock of the Holy Spirit to be heard and responded to across our city, nation and world. Invite the Holy Spirit to awaken every part of your being – your body, soul (mind, will and emotions) and spirit. Pray for your pastor to be fully awakened. Pray for the pastors and churches across our city to be fully awakened. Thank the Lord for allowing you to be here, fully awakened in this epic hour of history!
