I was impressed to go back a few years in my journal to post a message I needed to be reminded of.
1-18-12 “It’s time to get the attention of those slumbering. Awake I say, Awake! Stop living in your comforts and ease, your spiritual laziness is keeping you from the readiness you need to be in. I’m releasing promise. I’m releasing vision. I’m releasing a multitude of giftings, but so few are paying attention.
“Awake, daughter of Zion. Awake from your slumber. Get your lamps trimmed and filled for the day has come, the marriage supper is being prepared. Do you sense the longing in you? Do you not sense it? Prepare yourself to receive what I’m pouring out on the earth, for in due season, you will reap if you faint not says the Lord.”
Perhaps you’ve heard the call, the tugging on your spirit to come away, be with Him, your beloved. There’s an old song I used to sing called, I Miss My Time With You. It goes like this:”I miss my time with you, those moments together. I need to be with you each day and it hurts me when you say, you’re too busy, busy trying to serve me, but how can you serve me when your spirit’s empty. There’s a longing in my soul, wanting more than just a part of you. It’s true, I miss my time with you.”
I used to make up every excuse in the book to avoid my mornings with God. Too much to do, not enough time, work, kids, too many demands. But the bottom line was, I didn’t know the value in spending time with God. I didn’t realize it would change me so, give me this much strength. I’ve always loved God, always had relationship with Him, but my friend, until you’re intimate with someone, you’re not one with them and unable to produce any offspring. And isn’t that what this life is all about? He wants you to give Him more sons and daughters.
Revelation 22:17, “And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.” What will your response be? Excuse me while I run into His open arms of love and am swept away in His presence.
Father, I heard You call into my room, “Wake up! It’s time to get moving! I have plans for you today and you’re going to need My direction to do it.” So here I am, awake and ready. Give me Your instructions, and may I walk in the authority and power You gave me. May the lives that surround me be changed and awakened to Your call as well. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Kingdom come! Will be done on earth as in Heaven. Amen
