21 Days - Day 1

"God's Alarm Clock"

Pastor Stephen Harrison

Read: Romans 13:11–12

I don't usually sleep with an alarm.  However, when I have something very important to attend, I use an alarm because I don't want to miss it.  It never fails when I set an alarm, I don't sleep well.  I toss and turn all night watching the clock to make sure I don't miss the alarm.   God's alarm has sounded and it's time to wake up spiritually.  We must not miss the alarm of the Lord!  The apostle Paul said, "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. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light" (Romans 13:11–12). 

It's time to wake up!  The alarm of the Spirit is ringing louder than it ever has before.  Will you sleep right through what God is doing?  Are you so ready to spiritually wake up that you can't sleep anymore?  It's time to wake up!  It's time to A.R.I.S.E.  During this 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting, let's AWAKEN to the Lord, REACH others for Jesus, INVEST ourselves in the Kingdom, START growing in the Lord, and EQUIP ourselves and others in discipleship.

Today's Challenge:  Commit today to 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting with your church.  Let God's holy alarm clock wake you up from sleeping through what He's doing.
