Recently, well today, I had a friend ask me what did God show me on 6/23/17? I’ve been telling people- friends, family and believers, that the Lord has recently woke me up.
6/23/17 I was awakened! Before “my awakening” I didn’t even know I was sleep. I didn’t even know that Believers could be sleep. I mean I was loving the Lord, I was somewhat following the Lord, I was in the Church meetings! How could I be sleep?
I was unbothered when I heard about girls living in sex slavery, children in MY VERY OWN CITY cutting themselves, people on drugs, and prostitutes selling their souls!
But God woke me up. And I love Him differently. I love His people differently. I love my enemies differently. People’s pain affect me. I find myself weeping more because it. I find myself praying more. I find myself DYING to selfishness. I find myself saying Lord use me. And really meaning it!
This is what the Lord has been showing me since 6/23/17. I pray it blesses you, encourages you and empowers you to find your identity in Christ and to walk in Christ enjoying Him as your life!
6/23 The AWAKENING Choose to be a living overcomer! Aka “To live victoriously Daily”
6/24 thru TODAY The Lord has showed me- I was allowing myself to be a defeated Christian by choosing to love the World, indulging in the pleasures of my flesh, seeking my own will above God’s will.
QUICKLY after 6/23 He began to bring me back to the basics, coming o Him first, believing in Him, Trusting in Him. Allowing Him to take the lead basically letting Him be God and not becoming god myself!
SLOWLY after 6/23 He began to show me my purpose, pull this purpose out of me causing me to seek Him like I’ve never sought Him before. Causing me to love Him and others like I’ve never done before. Causing me to want to die to myself/ decrease so He can increase! Helping me find my identity in Him
SURELY giving me the confidence to walk in Him boldly and use my gifts to bring Him glory while inspiring a generation to do the same
THANKFUL– I’m so very thankful He would wake me up to be alive in the age and apart of the generation and God’s plan to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to build His Church aka His beautiful Bride!
TAKE AWAY – Jesus overcame the World! And now the overcoming One lives in US! We should be spontaneously overcoming enemy, our flesh, and any obstacle meant to destroy us. As we enjoy Jesus as life we spontaneously overcome. THIS HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE since 6/23/17❤️
If you have never made the decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to, feel free to ask your local pastor or believer. Or you can PM me on social media. Or you can pray right now. Lord Jesus I believe you love me with an everlasting love. I believe you came into the World to die for my sins and forgive my sins. Please come live in me and dine with me. I choose you to be my Lord and Savior! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
The Bible says, “anyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” Romans 10:13. Please share with a believer if this is your first time to pray that prayer! And please feel free to let me know by leaving a comment!
