AWAKE – March 2024 Word of The Month

Dear Lovely Reader,

Can you believe we are in the last month of the 1st quarter of the year?! Time is flying and seasons are shifting. Not just weather wise (hopefully the UK cooperates!) but in our lives too.

Do you know you could be in a new season but are not aware of it. Or you could be the reason for delay in your life and destiny.

Sometimes I’ve met people and can tell they are still in an old season. Things have changed around them, but they are still bound to the old by their mindset. Not a great thing at all!

In this month I want to encourage and stir us all in our faith to AWAKE.

“Awake, O sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light.” -Ephesians 5:14

God has revealed to me that sometimes we can be in a ‘Sleeper state’ unconscious to the reality of who are and what we have in Christ. We can be unconscious to the reality of the world and God’s agenda for these end times. We can be enslaved to dead things that cause us to live a limited life.

However, from the scripture we see when we AWAKE from sleep and RISE from the old/dead things we receive LIGHT from JESUS CHRIST.

It’s time for us to stop sleeping on ourselves, our destiny and purpose on earth.

It is time to AWAKEN to who you are and your identity in Christ.

It is time to AWAKEN to The Truth in a world where lies and rebellion is normalised.

We can only do this by going to the foundation of our identity – Salvation.

David prays

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

-Psalm 51:12

When was the last time that we deeply thanked God for salvation and rejoiced in being set free from death? It’s not something we tend to think about due to the busyness of life. In this resurrection season, let us all make a conscious effort to pray this scripture.

The joy of salvation = we will never die, we have been rescued from hell, we are the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ, we are under a new covenant by the blood of Jesus Christ and we will reign with Him forever!

Let us pray together:

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for sending your only son to die in my place.

Thank you for setting me free from death, hell and the grave. I am so glad that I have salvation in You! Let this joy I have never be taken away, let it be rooted in my heart and mind.

O Lord, continuously restore to me the Joy of Your salvation and uphold me through every season by Your generous Spirit.

O Lord, awaken me to Your will and love for this is my firm foundation.

By your power and by the Holy Spirit, I will be fully conscious, alert and aware to what you are doing in my life, my destiny and this world.

Give me eyes to see, ears to hear and a mind dominated by heavenly wisdom to advance in life and overcome every arrow from the wicked one.

I rise from old and dead habits, patterns, mindsets and seasons.

I rise by faith to become everything you have called me to be.

I receive light from Christ my saviour.

Let this burning light of Christ shine brighter and brighter on my path till the perfect day.

In Jesus Name. Amen.
