[MFM Daily Devotional 6TH November 2019] Topic: SLEEPING ON DUTY

Posted by: On November 6, 2019 || Categories: Devotional

Fire Scripture: Ephesians 5:14-16

Memory verse: Matthew 13:25

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
Fervency in prayer by the power of the Holy Spirit is a good preservative against thoughts rushing in. Flies never settle on the boiling pot.

Motivational Quote
Prophetic Word: You will not do the work of God deceitfully.

Sleep is a sweet and desirous exercise for every human, especially after the daily activities. The Bible clearly states that God gives sweet sleep to His beloved, Psalm 127:2. Such sleep connotes a peaceful rest. Unfortunately, when a person sleeps in the wrong place, in spite of his need for rest, there is more danger than peace.

Imagine a soldier sleeping on duty! We are soldiers of Christ called to be alert and be watchful. It is nothing but spiritual indiscipline and imminent danger, when a soldier of Christ who is supposed to be battle-ready soldier is found sleeping at his duty post, instead of watching, praying, evangelizing, preaching or doing any other kind of service for the Master. This is the unguarded hour in the life of a Christian! We must be very careful!

Sleeping at such moment implies many things ranging from spiritual lukewarmness, nonchalance, compromise or carelessness. Little wonder that the enemy gains entry into such a life so easily. To sow tares means, to pollute a life, sow evil seeds that could bring misfortune, hardship, affliction and all such negative things into a person’s life. It implies a life whose very fabric has been tampered with and stained. It takes more efforts to uproot these tares than to plant good seeds. It could adversely affect the health of other plants.

Why should a Christian be so careless! Would to God we are more careful, and not caught unawares by the enemy of our soul! We are charged to awake unto righteousness in Ephesians 5:14-16. This is a clarion call to those in spiritual slumber. Stop being a spiritually dead Christian, awake unto the light of God. In Him is the light that gives life to all men (John1:4). Let His light brighten the darkness around and within you.

When you walk in His light, you will become wise and not simple (Psalm 119:130). You will be able to make use of every available opportunity to outsmart and overcome the antics of the enemy. Remember, the Master is coming soon. The devil is never on vacation. Arise and be alert! Greater is the One in you than the one in the world! Awake, soldier of Christ; hear the battle cry, heed the call of our Captain, Onward Christian soldier…!

1. Am I a soldier of the cross?
A follower of the Lamb?
And shall I fear to own His cause,
Or blush to speak His name?

And when the battle’s over,
We shall wear a crown!
Yes, we shall wear a crown!
Yes we shall wear a crown!
And when the battle’s over,
We shall wear a crown;
In the new Jerusalem.
Wear a crown, wear a crown,
Wear a bright and shining crown;
And when the battle’s over,
We shall wear a crown;
In the new Jerusalem.

2. Must I be carried to the skies,
On flowery beds of ease,
While others fought to win the prize,
And sailed through bloody seas?

3. Are there no foes for me to face?
Must I not stem the flood?
Is this vile world a friend to grace,
To help me on to God?

4. Sure I must fight if I would reign,
Increase my courage, Lord!
I’ll bear the toil, endure the pain,
Supported by Thy Word.
– Rev. Isaac Watts, D. D.
