Don’t Go To Sleep
There is a spiritual slumber that can come upon a child of God. Devastating things take place when Satan lures us to sleep. It comes through sin.
“Watch” is a military term that signifies the need to stay alert and on the look out for the enemy to approach. Many lives have been destroyed due to the enemy ambushing soldiers while they were asleep.
· Sisera was slain when he was fast asleep and weary. Judges 4:18-21
If you abide in the without light, your eyes will start to adjust and become heavy. If you continue in darkness long enough, you will fall asleep. Once you are asleep spiritually, your spiritual enemy will come and sow tares in your field, wreck your spiritual life and family and all the while you’re not alert to see it.
According to Romans 13, spiritual sleep comes through abiding and walking in spiritual darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 1 Thessalonians 5:6-8
