Wake Up!

Wake up everybody no more sleepin’ in bed!
No more backward thinkin’ time for thinkin’ ahead.
The world has changed so very much,
From what it used to be so
There is so much hatred war an’ poverty.

Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way.
Maybe then they’ll listen to whatcha have to say.
Cause they’re the ones who’s coming up and the world is in their hands.
When you teach the children, teach em the very best you can.

For some strange reason I hear this song in my head. I am convinced this has a spiritual message behind it. It is time for the all of God’s children to wake up!

Wake up, wake up, O Zion! Clothe yourself with strength. Put on your beautiful clothes, O holy city of Jerusalem, for unclean and godless people will enter your gates no longer.  Rise from the dust, O Jerusalem. Sit in a place of honor. Remove the chains of slavery from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. (Isaiah 52:1-2 NLT)

After we wake up, God desires that we change the way we think. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. (Romans 12:2 NLT) The world has changed from what it used to be because satan desires to wear out God’s chosen people and change the laws that the Word tells us to live by.  And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. (Daniel 7:25 KJV)

The song instructs for teachers to teach a new way. That’s a message that’s echoing through the Kingdom of God now. No more church as usual…no more religion…it is time for TRUE relationship with the King. It is time to be taught the Word because “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6 KJV).

Chorus:
The world won’t get no better if we just let it be.
The world won’t get no better we gotta change it yeah, just you and me.

Is God calling you today to NOT to let it be? Is God instructing you to be a conduit for change? Is He giving you visions or dreams of helping parents be better, mentoring the youth, or being an example in the marketplace? If this is you, WAKE UP! Be that channel that will cause healing and deliverance to take place to release captives into the liberty that Jesus died for. Yes, its done by you and me! He needs a yielded, willing vessel to wake up, arise and walk in authority!

Dear Daddy,

Father, in the Name of Jesus, today I release fear, procrastination, lethargy, slothfulness or any other unclean spirit that is hindering me from being our change agent. I thank You now in the Name of Jesus for courage and discernment to fulfill my purpose. I thank You for equipping me to carry out what You have ordained me to do. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Ladies, I EMPOWER you to be a CHANGE REACTOR that causes a CHANGE REACTION! Let your actions, presence, deeds, and words cause others to move forward. I EMPOWER you to walk in holy boldness and cause others around you to WAKE UP!
