Daily Read - Judges 4:1-5:31; Luke 22:35-53; Psalm 94:1-23; Proverbs 14:3-4
When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow. Then He said to them,
"Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation."
Rise up My bride, there is much to accomplish for My Kingdom. Shake off the slumber and sleep that robs you from effectually tending your call. The enemy loves lulling My church into a place of complacency for it is there he enters with temptation.
Wake up, wake up for the hour is late, I need you to watch and pray. Much is happening, things you cannot see with your natural eyes, but the spiritual realm is alive with activity. Angelic hosts battling darkness on your behalf, waging war against generational strongholds that have kept you in bondage and captivity. Ministering angels sent to deliver My goodness, arranging circumstances to release My blessings. Yes, much is happening, but you must be awake to see it.
The world is tossing back and forth in a violent tumbler of chaos. Keep your heart close to Me in prayer and do not allow yourself to fall under the heaviness of sorrow or fear. This only leads to depression which disengages you paralyzing your walk.
Snap out of it! Arise and shake off sleepiness for it is time to advance My Kingdom. Many wait for someone to step into their lives and share My story of redemption, but a spirit of apathy has muted the mouths of many of My people.
Take the authority I give you and bind the enemy from interfering in your commission. Command slumbering and apathetic spirits bound and send them to the abyss.
I call My army to attention; this is not the time to sleep, but to watch and pray!
My alarm clock is going off....
Don't sleep through it!
Father God, You have my full permission to do whatever necessary to keep me awake. The hour is urgent and I want to be alert and ready to hear my marching orders. I don't want to miss what You are saying and I certainly don't want to miss what You are doing. I command every demonic spirit that holds me in a state of slumber bound and powerless. I send each to the abyss and I close all doors in my life that would give them legal access back into my life. Holy Spirit, I ask You to lead me into deeper places of prayer that I would remain watchful to discern temptation when it knocks at my door.
