Are Ya AWAKE?

After an exhausting day of school as a new first grader, I asked my grandson, Max, what he thought of his teacher. He said he did NOT like her; he didn’t like her at all! Surprised, I asked him “Why?” He proclaimed, “Cause she keeps wakin’ me UP!”

This is the same reason I sometimes have trouble reading my Bible. About the time I’m getting a handle on a situation in my life or getting victory over a personal battle, I read the scripture and HEY! I never saw THAT before!

Never mind that I’ve read that verse a hundred times in a dozen different versions! Today, when I read it; it wakes me up to another area of my life that needs Christ’s influence!

God gave us His Word so we could have a standard of holiness and commitment. No matter how many times we read the Bible cover to cover, there’s always a new conviction, a new insight or a new revelation to mold us into the image of Christ.

Satan knows that reading scripture, spending time with the Lord in conversation (prayer) and fellowship with the body of Christ brings intimacy to our relationship. When we have intimacy through fellowship in the Word, we live triumphantly even when life is hard. Let the Word wake you up so you see clearly where the conflicts of life come from. Wake up and begin to live victoriously!

Ephesians 5: 13-14 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
