Are you hard to wake up in the morning? When I have to wake my kids up, usually after the 5th or 6th time I have to threaten. “If you don’t get up I am going to leave you there!” How do you think the Lord feels when he tries to give us wake up calls in our life and we just keep on sleeping. I think God is very merciful and loves us very much. But how do we know what tomorrow will bring? If we rely on our own strength or anything apart from the Lord you will be left disappointed and depressed. In 1 Timothy 4:1, The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. We have to be in the Word every day to decipher what is from the Lord and what is not. In John 16:13, But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8
