Awake, Awake!

Awake, awake!  Stay awake at all times, praying for strength. I am pouring out a deposit in this time of waiting. Will you receive it? The strength you need.  The eyes to see. The heart of joy. The place of rest. A deposit to be withdrawn in the days to come.  A deposit of compassion.  A deposit of hope.  A deposit of courage.  A deposit of my power.

Awake, O sleeper and arise from the dead, so the light of Christ will shine on you.  Anything that is visible is light. I will illuminate the darkness for you to walk through, as if it is day. It will be clear to you, when you awake, your vision will not be hindered by the shadows. I will shine and you will carry my light into the night.

Awake, awake! Put on strength, as the arm of the Lord. My arm carries burdens.  My arm removes obstacles.  My arm lifts up.  Put on the strength of my arm.  You know the time, the hour has come for you to wake from sleep, for salvation is nearer than when you first believed. I will rescue you. The hour is upon you.  Do not miss it, in this season of waiting.  It is the time stand in my strength. Awake, be watchful, stand firm in the faith, be strong.

Awake, awake! Put on your strength O Zion; put on your beautiful garments. I have prepared them for you.  A garment of praise.  A garment of joy.  A garment of truth.  A garment of light and life.  They are layered and they flow over you, like my presence. They were made for such a time as this.

Awake! Do not sleep as others do, keep awake, and be sober. Do not take your vision lightly. Be alert.  Look for me amidst the chaos. Look and you will find me, in the eye of the storm. Peace, peace. I am the peace.  Open your eyes to see me.

Awake! Prepare your mind for action. Set your mind fully on the grace of Christ.  Guard your mind.  Focus on me alone. Protect what goes into your mind. Your thoughts steer your life.  Let me guide them. Center them on me.

Awake. Wake up, watch and pray so you do not fall.  Watch and pray.  Watch and pray.  Watch and pray.  The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. I speak to your spirit to rise up, and be strong.  Clothe yourself in strength.  Awake, be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Do not let it be you.

Awake, Awake.  Stand in my strength as in the noonday sun.  Shine your light.  My joy is your strength.  Clothe yourself in my joy.  All will be well.  All will be as it should be.  I am the light in the darkness. Awake and walk with me in the garden.  I will show you the way to walk with your eyes open. Awake!
