Are You Sleeping? #StayWoke ~

And when He returned, He found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him (Mark 14:40)~ Too many of us are asleep on our watch! Not just about social injustices, but about our eternity! We must set a strict guard upon our souls; keep our hearts from doing hurt, and getting hurt. Above all, we should seek from the Lord Jesus that living water, the sanctifying Spirit, issuing forth unto everlasting life. Thus we shall be enabled to put away a froward mouth and perverse lips; our eyes will be turned from beholding vanity, looking straight forward, and walking by the rule of God’s word, treading in the steps of our Lord and Master. Don’t get complacent because you feel like everything is going smoothly (because if you really look around, you’ll know that it’s NOT going smoothly right now). But you might actually have a lot of good going on right now, even with all the craziness in the world, and for that you are truly blessed; so in fact you must even more intently Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1 Pet 5:8).  In other words, WAKE UP and STAY WOKE …there is a force of darkness looking for ways to cause you to fall! And if you think, “That will never happen to me” because it’s going so good right now, look around… there is a whole world of people who never thought they would be susceptible to “falling” and yet they have. It’s prideful to think otherwise; and Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” (Prov 16:18). Don’t be naive- most people who end up down the wrong path didn’t set out to get there. Be aware of your choices- A major battle is won when we stop asking what’s wrong with certain choices, and instead, ask what’s right with them.The choices we make everyday dictate the life we lead. To thine own self be true! Moreso, to God be true! He IS returning – will you be alert? Sober? Vigilant? Or will He catch you sleeping? Are you Woke yet?
