REALITY CHECK “WORTH CONSIDERING” 10/29/20 From Ken Smith, Kona
Today’s Scripture (Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. (Romans 13:11, NKJV)
When God first put that dream or promise in your heart, you were excited; you told people what you were going to do. But now it’s been months, maybe years, and things haven’t turned out like you planned. Today’s Scripture says you are closer now to seeing it come to pass than you’ve ever been. You’re coming into a high time. High time is when things suddenly change in your favor, when blessings chase you down. High time is when your healing shows up, you break the addiction, you meet the right person. God makes things happen that you could never make happen.
If you’re going to see this high time, you have to wake up out of your sleep. That means to get your passion back. Start believing again, start expecting things to change, start talking like it’s going to happen. You can’t be complacent and step into the fullness of what God has in store. My question is, are you awake?
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for the call to wake up, to get my hopes up, to start expecting things to change. Thank You that I’m closer to going to the next level, to seeing explosive blessings than I’ve ever been. I believe that I’m about to see this high time. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Actually, seems to me, that Apostle Paul is seeking to wake up the Roman Christians that the day of their graduation is getting closer day by day. That they should wake up to the need to get out of their comfort zone and get to work serving the Lord and His coming Kingdom. To realize that the testing time on earth is very precious potentially for our spiritual growth and development. And that what we do on earth for HIS Kingdom will have eternal benefits as done for Christ Jesus and out of love for HIM. I use the following tract a lot to help remind people that we are really just pilgrims that are passing through this very unique dimension of time to decide how to use our freewill profitably.
Let There Be Light
And God said, let there be light and there was light: (1). Arise, shine: for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee (2). Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light (3). This is the message which we have heard and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all (4). He that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (5). If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin (6). This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (7). For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (8). But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light (9). Thy Light shall break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward (10). Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (11). The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light (12). The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the Light thereof (13). And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever (14).
1. Gen. 1:3, 2. Isa. 60:1, 3. Eph. 5:14, 4. 1 Jn. 1:5, 5. Jn. 3:21, 6. 1 Jn. 1:17, 7. Jn. 3:19, 8. Jn. 3:20, 9. 1 Pet. 2:9 10. Isa. 85:8, 11. Matt. 5:14, 12. Rom. 13:12, 13. Rev. 21:33, 14. Rev. 22:5, Eph. 4:11-16.
It is my prayer that you will carefully read this and consider your life style. Is it for comfort here or is it a serious consideration of the gift of eternal Life that our Creator has potentially extended to you.
