Main Text: Ephesians 5:14 – Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
Romans 13:11 – And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
Spiritual slumber is described as a state of spiritual weakness. The bible refers to ti as spiritual deadness. It is a situation where a Christian becomes alive in the flesh. Sin is no longer wrong to you. At this point, prayer becomes a hard labour and worshipping God becomes last in your to-do list. Your service in the house of God begins to suffer and then you begin slack behind.
Spiritual slumber makes you to be spiritually un-alert to your environment and you lose the covering of God over your life. When you are spiritually weak, you become vulnerable to the devils plots. It can also expose those you are leading to the devil if you are occupying a leadership position in the house of God.
Being in a state of spiritual slumber is a dangerous place to be because situations that seemed as nothing before with the power of God will begin to defeat you. So, you need to get out of there, if you have discovered yourself in this condition. Being in this state makes you doubt the voice of God and believe the voice of the flesh.
To get out of this state, the first step is to ask the Holy Spirit to help discover your way out. Secondly, start recalling God’s faithful to you in time past because it helps to lift your hope . Thirdly, you commit yourself to God through prayer and claim his promises as he has outlined them in his word. God has never failed anyone before.
SPIRITUAL SLUMBER LEADS TO DEATH. GET OUT OF IT.
Prayer: Lord, put in me a spiritual alertness all the time so that I will not sleep.BY BISHOP NGOZI DURUEKE (HE REIGNS CHAPEL INTERNATIONAL) To send your testimony, write us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
