1 Thessalonians 5:5-6 TPT, “For you are all children of the light and children of the day. We don’t belong to the night nor to darkness. 6 This is why we must not fall asleep, as the rest do, but keep wide awake and clearheaded.”
AWAKE AND CLEARHEADED
“Some of us will never move forward spiritually before we’ve broken secrecy with ourselves…”
“We’re called to be WARRIORS, not sleepers. Put your ARMOR on, not your pajamas.“
To do that, we have to remain awake and clearheaded.
We win battles in the spiritual.
We see things through the spiritual
Not the emotional, not the physical.
FASTING helps us to see through the physical and the emotional.
BE SKILLED. BE FAITHFUL. BE QUICK.
Thinking you know everything, is a really quick way to fall asleep.
There is something unique about the Christian experience, that is asks us to CONSTANTLY and self-sacrificially CHALLENGE ourselves...just like HE did.
Your skill-building isn’t about YOU...
You can’t fall asleep standing up!
The spiritually AWAKE, give their time generously to people.
Be what God has called YOU to be. Some of us are mothers, some are evangelists. Some are prophetess’, some are business-women. Some are homemakers, some are church elders! Be the YOU, that God has called you to be, and STAY AWAKE. You can fall asleep at ANY age, any stage of growth. Don’t.
For you are all children of the light and children of the day. We don’t belong to the night nor to darkness.
