I found this in my Bible yesterday…written on an inconspicuous piece of paper…right on time for this changing season!
Are you awake to the things of God? Has God put you in a deep sleep to pull out of you the very thing that you didn’t even know you needed? Is God blessing you with CHOICE today? Everything with God is a heart issue. God spoke things into existence then inspire that which he created in His image with breath of life. We have the ability to reflect God’s character and His glory to all we come in contact with. I will NEVER forget the day that I woke up from my deep sleep to the things of God, to purpose, to understanding. Our generation is a sleeping one. The world is distracted cannot see the signs and wonders of heaven’s creation because they are wide awake…but still dead asleep.
Everyone has been gifted for honoring and serving God but so many in this world are using their gifts in perversion, relying solely on the flesh to find a mate, thinking only of finances, attraction, and the things of the the heart that do not satisfy. Are you ashamed to do what is right and honorable in the sight of God and man? I want to be unashamed, using the choices God gives me to eat from the tree of Life. I want God to light the path ahead of me to show me signs and seasons, just as He does to all on earth if only they would see. God created light to govern changing seasons, so what light do I shine in this beautiful, blessed season ahead of me? Is my light powerful enough to push people that will come across my path out of their current season and into their new one?
Genesis 2:18-22 – Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” 19 So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. 20 He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.
God put Adam into a deep sleep. Why? To birth out of him the very thing he didn’t even realize he needed. God, I am grateful for the helper you have molded me into being. I was perfectly content and complacent in being alone but you saw otherwise. I am grateful that you have brought me a man that is comparable to me…and I to him. Thank you for waking us both up out of a deep sleep, and for forming us daily to be one with you but also to each other. Thank you for equipping us each individually with gifts and lights that we can use to shine into others. Thank you for changing my season, Lord. We are created perfect for one another. Help us to always resist temptation and bring our thoughts to you. Thank you, Lord, for CHOICE. We want our obedience to be true and never hollow. There are so many things on the horizon, decisions that need to be made, roads to travel that will become our home. God, I don’t ever want to hear the words from You, “Who told you that?” just like you asked Adam and Eve in the garden when they realized they were naked and ashamed before you. I want to always be able to say… “Lord, You told me that…and I stand in freedom and unashamed and beautiful before you.” I want to come before you Lord…blameless. I don’t want to be separated from you because I act on my own desires. I can’t hide from you, Lord.
All God has to do is speak for things to be heard and be commanded into action.
“THEN GOD SAID”
His deepest desire is to be in fellowship with us. On the third day, the number of completion, God spoke into existence FRUIT and the tree that yields fruit…the tree of life…the TREE…the CROSS. And on the 4th day, God said, “Let the lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night and let them be a sign to mark the seasons, days, and years.”
The season is changing, the time is here, and God is SPEAKING us out of our deep sleep…
