Stay Spiritually Awake
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for November 28, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!
Lord our God, we look upward to heaven, for you will come from heaven in the glory of the Father. May we remain true to our calling, watching and praying every day and every hour, waiting for you, who will bring into order everything on earth. Bless us and bless our land. Grant us the joy to see you working through your servants toward the salvation of the peoples. Be with us and bless us. May your living Word work in our hearts so that every Sunday, every festival, and every day from now on may be a day of joy. Protect us. Bless us. May your name be praised in our hearts! Amen.
Daily Commentary: Society has a way of getting and keeping our attention on things that are not very important but how do you stay spiritually awake in a world that constantly steals your attention? What can you do to avoid falling spiritually asleep?
Are you too sleepy to realize the truth? God has called each one of us to be alert to what is coming and fight distraction when it does come. TWe must be observant with spiritual matters as we may lose sight of the goal – our salvation. We cannot sleep through life as if nothing matters.
How do we do this? Avoid conduct unbecoming to a Christian and be able to awaken others from their spiritual stupor. Show others the ways of the Lord. Keep busy with God’s word. Avoid works that brings down to the darkness of evil.
“Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:13
Awareness is how Peter describes what our daily activities must entail and it is up to us to be vitally aware of the danger that spiritual slumber can do to us.
