📖: 1 Thessalonians 5:1-28
Confession: 2 Thessalonians 3:3
As Christians, our conviction is our faith in the salvation of Jesus Christ, possessing the determination and zeal for Jesus Christ. The moment we become born again Christians through salvation (John 3:3-8) and we receive the Holy Spirit (1Peter 1:2-3), we become a new creation. Acts 1:8 says we receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us.
Spiritual awakening therefore, is the resurrection from spiritual death.
Acts 1:8 says we receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us but due to the trying circumstances of life, our inner fire can quench and spiritual death occurs. It can be a gradual process or it can be swift. Devetional time may diminish or reduced to zero, thereby we stop growing spiritually and the Spirit’s fire in us can be quenched. “This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”( Ephesians 5:14).
We must understand that we live in this world but are not of this world. Therefore, we must not grieve the Holy Spirit so that we don’t fall into spiritual slumber but rather, have minds that are alert and fully sober (1 Peter 1:13).
To awaken from spiritual death, we must maintain our relationship with God for the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. 1 Thessalonians 5:5 says we are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness hence must humble ourselves, pray, and seek God’s face, and turn from our wicked ways; then God will hear from heaven, and will forgive our sins, and will heal us (2 Chronicles 7:14), and we will have spiritual awakening. Stay connected to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. For those yet to surrender their lives to Jesus, this is not negotiable, do so now, tomorrow might be too late. DO IT NOW!
PRAY THIS PRAYER; in the name of Jesus, I repent of my sins, come into my heart and I will make You my Lord and Saviour. Stay connected! Stay focused! Have blessed week. Shalom!!!
🙏 My spiritual power, stolen by dark powers, come back in the name of Jesus.
🙏 By the resurrection power, my dream life and spiritual life, awake from your slumber, in Jesus’ name.
🙏 Oh God arise and empower me to always overcome the strongman and re-possess good things the enemies stole from my life in Jesus’ name.
🙏 Every agenda of darknes for the rest of this year, I cancel you, in the name of Jesus.
🙏 Every power mocking the power of God in my life, what are you waiting for? DIE, in the name of Jesus.
