Awake, Oh Sleeper

As I was in that state between dreaming and awakening this morning when my spirit heard the Lord say, “Proverbs 21.” Verses 1, 15, 16 and 18 jumped out at me:

“It’s easy for God to steer a king’s heart for His purposes
as it is for Him to direct the course of a stream.
When justice is served, the lovers of God celebrate and rejoice,
but the wicked begin to panic.
When you forsake the ways of wisdom,
you will wander into the realm of dark spirits.
The wicked bring on themselves the very suffering they planned for others,
for their treachery comes back to haunt them.”

You don’t have to look far into today’s news to witness the panic unfolding. It is like one desperate last ditch effort to keep their webs of deceit from unraveling. Their webs have served them well in the past to deceive the masses – those who slumber to the lullaby of lies, tangled mistruths and shifting perceptions. With their lies, they sweep Truth away with smoke and mirrors, (or so they think) causing entrapment into slavery of souls unaware of the covenants of darkness they are agreeing to. But there is hope.

Are you awake? Ask the Lord to stir your spirit from slumber and let Wisdom be your companion. When Wisdom comes, she brings her companions: Understanding, Knowledge, Fear of the Lord, Wise Counsel, Might and Spirit of Jesus. Let Wisdom guide your declarations for the day. Align your spirit/soul/body so that you are in agreement with God’s plans. With a yes in your heart, allow the Light of Truth to gently shake your shoulder, shaking off the lies and opening your gates to allow God’s Truth, Power and Authority to flow from Him and through you. It is time for the sons to rise and shine, to command the morning.

Job 38:12-15: “And have you ever ordered Morning, ‘Get up!’
told Dawn, ‘Get to work!’
So you could seize Earth like a blanket
and shake out the wicked like cockroaches?
As the sun brings everything to light, brings out all the colors and shapes,
The cover of darkness is snatched from the wicked—
they’re caught in the very act!”

The Word says that Righteousness and Justice flow from God’s throne. The sons are awakening to their true identity and aligning with Righteousness and Justice as they abide in this flowing from His throne and rest (not sleep) in Him. Remember Proverbs 21:1,

“It’s easy for God to steer a king’s heart for His purposes
as it is for Him to direct the course of a stream.”

His sons are awakening… ruling, reigning, governing in His authority, allowing His alignment to flow through them and into their sphere of influence. They are atmosphere changers…. frequency releasers. They are co-creating in Oneness with Him for the restoration of all things.

My declaration for today is Amos 5:24: “BUT LET JUSTICE RUN DOWN LIKE WATER, AND RIGHTEOUSNESS LIKE A MIGHTY STREAM.” The word ‘LET’ means that it already exists inside of you. It is part of your identity, your Oneness with Christ. The word ‘let’ is also a key, a choice, an act of your will. It is choosing to let those very things that already exist inside of you be released through your will gate… to the great awakening… to the release of Truth… to the advancing river of Justice… to the flow of Righteousness. We are abounding in His Mercy. We are surrounded by His grace. We are resting in His Oneness. We are releasing His power into His ever-advancing Kingdom. LET’S release His heart, through our Oneness with Him today.

The song “Awake, Oh Sleeper” by Kelanie Gloeckler sums it up perfectly:
Awake, awake, oh sleeper
Arise, shine, for your light has come

Awake, awake, oh sleeper
The glory of the Lord is upon you

Beautiful bride, city on a hill
See My army in the valley sleeping still
Sons and daughters slumber in the light
The night is gone, the day has come
It’s time to prophesy
Say to Zion, My anointed ones
Rise to the glory, grow in the light of the Son

Arise, arise, shine…
Daughter of Zion, arise, arise and shine

Kings and priests, whose vision is gone
You shall rise to the brightness of the dawn
Great is the darkness, greater is I AM
Shake off the dust, come with us
It’s time to sing again
Say to Zion, “Let the Church arise
Come together, beautiful Body of Christ

Sound the alarm, tell everybody it’s time to wake up
