Someday along this journey of your life you.WAKE.UP. With groggy mind and heavy eyes you wake and look around at your life. The fog with the depth of sleep hangs fuzzy over everything. You had fallen asleep, something had lulled your spirit into a deep paralyzing coma. Yet now, with eyes adjusting to the blurry reality you LIVE.IN. Something woke your spirit up. Maybe it was a Word. The Word. In power whispering your name, “wake UP!! My child, wake up!”. Eyes open you start taking.it.all.in. The Light illuminates the dark and you start to see the Truth about YOU, your life, your past, your people, your church…everything that was once hum-ho-ing endless in a dream, maybe even a nightmare, is taking shape in the light. It all looks different. At that moment you start thinking, how long have I been asleep in the dark? What put me to sleep and why. Your spirit wakes and starts crying out…for the Truth, for food, for the Way. The Holy Spirit searches and reveals. Christ attends and feeds. You start to strengthen as you have to re-learn EVERYTHING in the Light.
If this has not happened to you. Ask God to breath life in your spirit and wake.you.up.
If you are awake and the fog is heavy and you still feel like sleeping. Ask Christ to whisper His Truth and Light to lift the fog.
Get ready to be KNOCKED off your rocker!! Reality CHECKS are painful but most beneficial!!
I am awake. Wide awake. My eyes are adjusting more and more to the light. I see depravity and brokenness. I see what steals peace and I see sin for what.it.is. I see how the Enemy “programs” are minds as just babies to be paralyzed in fear. Then out of fear we struggle to survive and use manipulation to get what we need. It starts young while brains are still forming. Pathways are burned into the brain and we sleep in the dark in automatic Pilate wrapped in sin and talking in our sleep passing what we believe to all who are near us. We pass on fear in the name of life…If we die in that state, we exist in death for eternity. It doesn’t matter how much we say the name ‘Jesus’ and do things in His name…if our spirits are in sin, we are dead. The Breath of Life came to overcome Death itself and with breathe of new LIFE into your spirit and retrain.your.brain. NO more fear. NO more lies. NO more sleeping in a dark nightmare. There will be struggle. There will be pain. There will be great resistance to keep you in the dark and your mind captive to fear. But our GOD is BIGGER. STRONGER. BETTER.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2 ESV)
I beg you to wake up. I beg you to start praying over your spirit the Way. TRUTH. LIFE. and if you don’t have the strength or the words…have someone start praying over you. Everyday. Pray. LIFE. Retraining take time…repetition…dedication…You will like how your are programmed to live.
For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:13-21 ESV)
Here are some tools I use to pray…over and over….pray.
