The Lord showed me a picture of someone in the driver’s seat of a car, but they were asleep behind the wheel. He said, “I have given My people full control of the vehicle but they are not driving.”
The Holy Spirit is showing me that He wants to move in our lives and ministries, but there are many of you who are asleep behind the wheel to the things that He has assigned and entrusted to you.
The Lord says,
“I Am calling My people to awaken from their slumber, and arise to the high calling that I have placed on their lives. It is time to release the anointing that I have deposited on the inside of them. Arise from weariness, and awaken to righteousness. Throw off the grave clothes because I am about to move among you in a mighty way. Come out of your spiritual seclusion and allow Me to take dominion in your life. Allow Me to move among you in miracles, signs and wonders. This is a new day. Awaken to My plans and purposes that I have for you. Shake off your slumber and come out of your spiritual lethargy. Prepare yourselves for what I am releasing in your life.”
The night after I received this word, I had a dream in which a prophet came to me and said “Awaken the Sleeping Soldiers“.
“Arise mighty warrior. It is time to take your stand and take ground from what the enemy has stolen from you. Do not be afraid to move forward into all that I have created for you to do. I have called many of you to be leaders in the days ahead. I am calling the generals to lead the troops and equip their fellow soldiers. I am calling those to the front lines who are brave and determined, and does not fear what lies ahead. As you perceive the seasons shifting and the changes coming into the world, it is now the time for My body to awaken and walk in the calling and authority that I have entrusted to them,”
says the Lord.
“Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.'” Joel 3:9-10.
“Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak”” Matthew 26:40-41.
“Therefore He says: ” Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil” Ephesians 5:14-16.
“You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier” 2 Timothy 2:3.
