Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“Let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober” (1 Thessalonians 5:6).

The exalted Lord is speaking through His words to the Church at Sardis, and also to us with great earnest, “Be watchful” (Revelation 3:2). We are spiritually asleep where three things are concerned: prayer, the Word of God and our testimony.
• To be awake in our prayer lives means that we take the power of prayer seriously; that “above all things” we are on our knees and continually pray to God because we know that He hears prayer. The Lord is waiting for you now. Perhaps He has been waiting all day to see if you would seek Him. He is the source of blessing, but He says, “Ye have not, because ye ask not” (James 4:2).
• Sleep where the Word of God is concerned is just as deceptive. Are you holding fast to the promises that God has given you? God’s will concerning our sanctification is clear from His Word, just as clear as the fact that He desires the salvation of all men.
• Only the victorious prayer warrior has power and authority in his witness; only those who take the Word of God seriously and do not let themselves be held up by mental tiredness, but persevere before the throne of God until they are heard. Only those who live in prayer and stand on the Word of God, have power in their testimony.
