Solomon said, “Surely, in vain the net is spread In the sight of any bird” (Proverb 1:17).
Spiritual awakening is the secret of authority over the physical world. Once you are dead spiritually, it just a matter of time you will soon be out physical. Bishop David Oyedepo said, “If it is well with you spiritually, it shall be well with you everywherely.” Another name for spiritual awakening is spiritual alertness. Paul said those who sleep, sleep at night (1The 5:7). Night in this context of devotional means the late age of your life. What the above entails is that the only time you could neglect your spirituality if you choose to is in your old age. What age then is old age? According to the scripture, old age is between the age bracket of 101-120years, the bible says a child shall die at 100 (Is 65:20). Even late king David said those who are planted in the house of God (Children of God) should bring forth fruit in their old age. Spiritual vacation is a risk Bishop David Oyedepo says.
This is the secret; not to be prey for your enemy, you must pray. Not to be a food to your adversaries, you must be full, and not to waste away, you must wait on God. Prophet Isaiah said those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength (Is 40:31). Two verses before verse 31 of Isaiah 40 says, “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.” Therefore, no matter how weak you are today, God, He will supply your strength if you wait on Him. One of the things waiting on God does is to give and makes you alert and awake to the situation of life. It was a command when Paul said, “Awake, you who sleep…” Until Jesus Christ fell asleep, the storm did not come to the boat (Luke 8:23). As a bird that is awake could not be prey to the predator, so is a Christian who is awake will not be prey to his oppressor. It is time for your spiritual awakening.
…be inspired, live an abundant life, and help others.
