Possibly sleeping Christians-here’s some quick tips…

When you get into a place where your doubting, feeling hopeless, feeling disconnected from God, depressed, like giving up, confused, fearful, unsure, impatient… 😱where it’s hard to see clearly & your foggy headed… or maybe you have completely lost sight of what your even doing with God… you may be in a wilderness place!! You also may be asleep. I believe these are different and you could be dealing with both. Either way if you want the quick way out here are some VERY VALUABLE TIPS:

#1 remember the TRUTH (IDENTITY)-

who He is & who YOU are in Jesus. Remember all that He has done & His goodness & faithfulness. Look behind you to remember what He has done & how you first fell in love with Him…Satan is working overtime to make us forget who He is & who we are. When you believe his lies, your giving him to power of your agreement. Renounce the lies & declare the truth!!!! 👑🔥🔥🔥“And David was greatly distressed….But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.” 1 Samuel 30:6

#2 sincerely repent for any possible sins you’ve committed- known and unknown. If you don’t know- ask that Holy Spirit shine His light and expose them. Sins can also be lies that we have believed- either about God or ourselves or others. Be honest with Him & bare your heart before Him.🙏🏻🔥 “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:6-7 ESV

#3 ask for angels to be released to fight your battles in the heavens…ask God to fight your battles😇😇😇

#4 do all this in FAITH! Gather up what faith you have and believe with all you’ve got…. faith is so key!🌊

#5 truly expect Him to move!! Do this from the posture of your true Identity & from your renewed mind of who He is!! 🧠🔑👑🔥

#6 continue to renew your mind with His word- saturate yourself!

#7 ask for deeper revelation and knowledge of your Identity & who He truly is so that you don’t slip into this wilderness cycle anymore.

[You do not want to circle around in the wilderness forever. I promise! Don’t forget who you are…life goes by. Give it over, forgive, stop believing the lie, trust God, yield your heart- whatever it is that’s delaying you….just do it.]

“This is why the Scripture says, “Arise, you sleeper! Rise up from your coffin and the Anointed One will shine his light into you!””

Ephesians 5:14 TPT

Follow the light…

As I’m in my kitchen, feeding my children that “last snack” (after brushing their teeth) that they begged for- saying, like most nights, they’re too hungry to sleep yet…

I try to hustle them along since we’re past bedtime, and as they finish up the last blueberry, I turn off the light in the kitchen/dining area.

I did this to further assist them in the understanding that we are moving on… were no longer dwelling in this place (the kitchen).

We’re moving along. My son says “Mommmmm!! Turn on the light I can’t see!!!” But mom is not doing that, I don’t say anything- just move toward the next room. He gets it. He sees by the light of the lit room that lies ahead, and gets that “mom is moving on”. I just sensed a God moment happening here. Isn’t it so parallel to our walk with our good Father? Our wise King.

We go through various seasons and conditions with the Lord. It is part of our journey. But through it, He is with us. Guiding and leading us. He is patient, gentle and loving but also very wise and firm. Sometimes, if we’re having a hard time moving on, He will allow a fog or as He moves- the light also moves. He is the Light.

He does this because He is done in that place and is moving on to something new. To be with Him & to be able to see clearly- we must follow Him & go where He is going. This brings to mind this story about the Israelites journey in the wilderness:

Numbers 9:15-18.

On the day the tabernacle, the tent of the covenant law, was set up, the cloud covered it. From evening till morning the cloud above the tabernacle looked like fire. 16That is how it continued to be; the cloud covered it, and at night it looked like fire. 17Whenever the cloud lifted from above the tent, the Israelites set out; wherever the cloud settled, the Israelites encamped.

The featured photo was from a much needed hike I was privileged to take. I believe in this place began the transition from “the wilderness” to this new and higher place He is leading me to. I wasn’t able to see very clearly and got a bit stuck in this previous season. But He lovingly helped me along and as I am making my focus >[being with Him]< everything is naturally being ILLUMINATED 🔥🕊.
