If you are having a hard time sleeping lately you’re probably in good company. Most people would not blame you after glancing at what’s considered “news” today. However, I’d like to submit a different reason you’re losing sleep.
In 1 Samuel 3:1-12, young Samuel was called out of his slumber by the Lord. Only after being called out of his sleep three times and being counseled did he finally receive the message God had for him. His spiritual leader Eli had failed to do what Lord required – allowing his sons to bring a curse on his house. God told Samuel that He was about to do a new thing in Israel. That’s why Samuel was awakened.
I believe Jesus is about to do a new thing in the United States. Brothers and sisters, perhaps the restlessness we feel is the Lord calling us to open our eyes to properly define what “woke” really means.
No one knows when Jesus will return – anyone telling you otherwise is lying. Let us be grateful for every day we have the opportunity to share the gospel. Let us have the compassion of Jesus to see that the harvest is plentiful (Matthew 9:37). Is it still true the workers are few?
