There are times when you awaken slowly, just to see that it’s only been two hours since you fell asleep.
There are times you sleep so soundly, you are surprised you woke up so much later than you expected.
There are also times where you awaken with such a start, like somehow you are missing something important.
Are you missing something, knowing that you have an obligation to keep, but your focus has changed to put it off? Does that make it less important than it really is?
The Voice of The LORD has been calling out to those who have been slow to wake up. His Voice has been calling out to those who have been sleeping so sound about what your calling is, that you willingly sleep right through it, not realizing that your ineffectiveness is caused by your slumber.
Putting it off really does has its effect, doesn’t it?
But the time is coming when those who know their calling have been starting to awaken to the realization that something important seems to be missing, and you are waking up with a jump in your spirit, because The Spirit of The LORD has thrown something at you to get your life back on track, “Hey; where are you going? That is not what I called you for!.”
Runners in the Olympics, running laps on the track, don’t all start at the same line. They are staggered an equal amount of yards, or meters, so that when they come to the same finish line, they all have run the same distance.
At the sound of the gun that marks the start of the race, they all take off at the same time, and finish at the same line.
Some are faster than others, and all will finish according to their own level of speed. Their speed depends on how well they all trained for their race. But they all were awakened by a start.
God has been sending forth the Word By His Spirit. Faith does come be hearing the Rhema Word of God. This Rhema kind of Word is what has been giving you a “START” calling.
It is the Word That Is Sent. It causes your spirit to “see” the Word of God jump out at you; it gives you a “start”; opening your understanding that the Rhema Word you are seeing has a meaning that will be transforming you by the renewing of your mind.
It will enable you to prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. Because it is changing your life according to the call of God upon your life. There is nothing that is hidden from His sight.
His ways are higher than our ways; His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so much higher are His ways than our ways, and His thoughts higher than our thoughts. (Isaiah 55).
Waking up can be hard to do. But where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. Therefor, you have a START in your spirit.
The revelation of this will propel you, Revelation will be your portion.
