If you are reading this right now, you may suppose that you are. Consider the question again: Are you awake today? Awake… .to cease from sleep, to regain consciousness, to engage in activity again. There is a lull, I presume. A strength sapping lure. A power that renders the Human fading and failing. The Human of form and function wains, it dies away for lack of nutrition. The dependent Human has independently chosen to eat insufficient foods. We are not ceasing to sleep, regaining consciousness or engaging in activity. As a race of Humans, we are fighting to survive.
Are you AWAKE? Are you conscious and engaged?
Do you see what He sees, feel what He feels? Have you let His heart govern you?
“Wake yourself, wake yourself, stand up…” Isaiah 51:17. We are not of those who fade and fail. “Awake, awake, put on your strength…” Isaiah 52:1. We are not those who die away. We are not those who slumber about seeking sustenance. We do not lull half-blind through deserted places refusing the Word of the Lord. We are those with eyes wide open. Those who know the way to the Tree of His Eternal Life. We are those who enjoy His Abiding. We are those who eat, drink and are strengthened….
“Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law,” Psalm 119:18. “Incline your ear, and hear the words of the wise,” Proverbs 22:17. We are those who humble ourselves and ask to experience the goodness of His Government. We ask to experience the goodness of a food, a Word, that by all measure of our reasoning seems to mean the death of ourselves. We ask and He answers and we are not disappointed. We humbly eat His Governmental Word. We receive the directives of His good command. And therefore, we are conscious and engaged! We see and experience things as they really are. We are awake… .for eternity! We are awakened by His command day after day!
