01 May Wake up my soul – May 11
By: Michael Salim
In these last days of the world, the wicked world will become worse than before (2 Timothy 3:13). People who doesn’t believe in God will have their own ideas of what the believers should be. No matter how right or wrong the ideas are, they will judge our God based on our actions.
How can we look and act differently to the world? Jesus said:
‘And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever–the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.’ John 14:16-17.
If we let Holy Spirit to work in every single thing in our life and to tell us what we need to do according to His will, the world will see us differently.
‘Awakening’ is a song written by Chris Tomlin and Rueben Morgan, the song is written based on the heart for awakening to happen in nations. Friends, this is the time for us to awake our soul and be the part of the awakening movement in this world.
Matthew 26:41 states: ‘…the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak…’ This is not the time to follow our flesh desires that relates to temporary things that will pass away.
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever” 1 John 2:15-17
Let us seek the kingdom of God and lean on Holy Spirit in every single second of our life, so that we can have a discerning spirit to do His will and be an impact to the world.
