God's Wake Up Call!

Light shows up everything, just as the Scriptures say, “Wake up from your sleep and rise from death. Then Christ will shine on you.”  Act like people with good sense and not like fools. These are evil times, so make every minute count.   Don't be stupid.  Instead, find out what the Lord wants you to do.   Don't destroy yourself by getting drunk, but let the Spirit fill your life. 

Ephesians 5:14-18

Are you awake in this wicked world to the things of God and aware of the arrows aimed at you by Satan? When danger is at your door and you pretend it is not there you are indeed a foolish man. Today the times are evil, just as these verses in Ephesians 5 say. So as a follower of Jesus your job is to "wake up from sleep and act like people with good sense and make every minute count" in this wicked world!

When you travel across many times zones it is sometimes very hard to wake up at the proper hour in the morning. Your body may think it is still the middle of the night, but the clock says it is time for the day to begin. That is when you need a "wake up call" to jog you from your slumber and encourage you to tackle the tasks of this new day!

For whatever reason you may still be sleeping soundly and completely unaware of the dangers of this day! Ask God to wake you up to the dangers and temptations around you and to the opportunities He is placing before you today!

"Lord Jesus, I know I have been asleep when I should have been awake and alert at this late hour. Wake me from my slumber and show me the steps that I need to take today to completely do Your will. And may You be praised forever. Amen."
