And that is certainly what life is all about. So thanks so much again. So let's dive in. Are you ready? Let me ask you, what is God up to today? What has been working up for you? What have all the days of your life brought you to this day? And I bet you thought you were gonna wake up to just another normal ordinary morning where you have to drag your butt through the day, but you would be so, so wrong today.
(02:03): You and I, we both, we have this invitation to wake up and live like never before, an invitation to shift your perspective on your whole life and then watch your whole life change right before your eyes. You know, I don't know. Did you wake up today with anticipation, anticipation for all that God has aligned for you, anticipation for his provision in miraculous ways, anticipation for his beauty and goodness to surround you, or did you trade that anticipation for anxiety, anxiety over all? You have to do the list that is a mile long, that I bet you and only you created, but you don't wanna do it anxiety over all that could go wrong or may go wrong, has ever gone wrong with this inception, that wrong is coming your way again. Have you ever gotten so wrapped up in living that you've forfeited the ability to really live or you here, but not really here awake, but maybe sleepwalking through your days.
(03:01): Just going through the motions, checking the boxes, doing the things, but finding little joy in it. All guys is time to wake up in Romans 13, verse 12 through 14, uh, the message. It says, make sure that you don't get so absorbed and exhausted and taking care of all your day to day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off oblivious to God. The night is about over Don is about to break, be up and awake to what God is doing. God is putting the finishing touches on the salvation work. He began. When we first believed we can't afford waste a minute, get outta bed and get dressed. Don't loiter and linger waiting until the very last minute dress yourselves in Christ and be up and about man. That is so, so good. Have you dozed off in your own life?
(03:53): Are you so exhausted with your daily duties that you become oblivious to all that God is doing around you? Are you wasting your minutes? Assuming these minutes you've been given. Aren't valuable enough to really wake up for when I began really devoting my days to fully living with fire and joy. I began to understand that God's desire is to give you a life you want to wake up for. Imagine that a life you would wake up early for simply because you want 30 minutes more of it, a life you're not willing to forfeit for sleep a life so full. You are left drinking from the saucer because your cup is overflowing. Yes, this is the life that Christ came to give to you. This is the life to the full Jesus said in John 10, 10, I have come that they may have life and have it to the full a life worth waking up for is what Jesus is offering you.
(04:46): And you have an enemy in this world who tries to take everything Jesus came to give you. There's another sentence in this first, a warning of what the devil tries to do to you. Every single morning, the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. Our enemy's goal is to steal everything offered to you by Jesus. Jesus offers a day of life worth waking up for, and the devil comes to steal that gift and make it a day you dread. Is that what he did to you this morning? Did you know, did you dread, waking up? He stole the gift of a new day of life for you, and instead of wanting to wake up for it, he made you regret having to wake up. That's a snake right there for you guys. He's been stealing from you. Jesus offers you strength and energy for this day.
(05:32): And the enemy comes in to kill that. Is that what he did to you this morning? He killed your willpower. He smashed your energy and left you exhausted before the day even began. Jesus offers you joy with each new morning in Psalms 30 verse five. It says joy comes with the morning. If you didn't wake up with that joy this morning, could it be because the thief has been destroying it? If, so, this is not, not God's best for you. This is not his plan, his desire or his will for you, his masterpiece, his chosen one, his hand selected set apart for a time such as this girl, God wants to open your eyes to a life worth, waking up to. He wants to give you a passion for living each day. That is so great. You would willingly wake up 30 minutes earlier just to get more of it.
(06:20): If you don't have that, it's not because it's not being offered to you. It's because the enemy has slipped in and has been stealing it from you. This is your divine wake up call. You've been snoozing through a life that is entirely too precious to miss the life God has for you is right here. It's not in some distant destination that will be worth waking up for when you arrive. No, your life is worth waking up for today. This is your destination today, right here, there is priceless living to be had. You can't save this up for a more special day. That special day you're saving for may never come. You know, the weekend, the summer, that whatever day that you're pushing for that special someday guys, don't, you know how fleeting this is. Don't you know how fragile every detail of your life really is.
(07:06): And we're all in a perpetual state of dying. How crazy it would be to wait to live until you're closer to dying. That sounds like a dumb ploy of the enemy. To me, that's his nasty work right there, trying to convince you to wait to live all while life is never promised for tomorrow. So you save up what you could enjoy for some unknown date that may never come waste. That's wasting life. Remember the story Jesus told of the money that was given to three workers by their boss. I mean, I think you can read it in Matthew 25 versus 14 through 30, the boss gave each of his three workers money. Then he went away for some time. And when he returned, he asked for an account of what they did with the money while he was away. The first two workers used the money and had doubled to show for what they had been given.
(07:52): The boss was pleased with them. However, the third worker was afraid to lose what he had been given. So he had buried it and done absolutely nothing with it. The boss was furious and took from him and gave it to the other two who had proven to use what they had been given. God has given you an eye time. He has given us days to live. And one day when he returns, he will ask for an account of what we did with these days to the one who was afraid to live it afraid of failure, afraid of hard work, afraid of the unknown. There will be disappointment. Please don't let that be. You. Your objective is to live an UN wasted life. An UN wasted life is today. Make something of this time, make something of these opportunities, make something of this miraculous beauty all around you.
(08:36): Wake up. This is your wake up moment. And I get it. Wake up calls can be alarming. They can shake us up and wake us up from a dead sleep. Wake up calls can come in the form of life. Altering circumstances, close calls, harsh realities. See it for what it is. It's not here to destroy you. It's here to wake you up. You've been going through the motions in life and this shake up was meant to shake you awake. This is your life. Stop wasting. It respond to this divine, wake up call and live your life. As only you can live, don't allow yourself to be tricked into the exhaustion of the daily grind. Let live in the dream, right? God has given you strength to do all. You need to do. Set your mind to receiving that strength. Instead of receiving the defeat, the enemy offers a few weeks ago, we talked about creating new brain trails.
(09:25): Use them be awake to what God is doing. Open your eyes, to see all his offerings and be ready to seize them. And as you practice being fully alive and awake to see everything God is doing each day, you will begin to overcome the enemy's attempts to kill steal and destroy God's offerings. With this practice, you will become so alive that you genuinely wanna wake up earlier just to enjoy more of the day of the life given to you. Imagine waking up an hour earlier, just to live an hour more when you're living right, living will be so important to you that sleeping through it is no longer an option, no more hit and snooze, man, I'm fired up. And if you're want even more fire in your day, there's so much for you to do so. You can follow me on Instagram snag, a copy of my book, set free on Amazon.
