A lot of people are sleeping spiritually without realising it. When you no longer pray for as long as you used to, you are sleeping. When you no longer read your Bible everyday as you used to, you are sleeping. When you conveniently sleep at night without praying, you are sleeping. You need to WAKE UP.
A sleeping Christian is a dying Christian. When you are sleeping, your eyes are shut so you have no idea what is going on around you. If someone is approaching you with a stick, you could be facing him, but you will not see him and it is until he has hit you that you will wake up. That is what happens when the devil brings a problem your way, then you will resume your prayers and Bible studies again because you want God to take the problem away. If God takes away the problem immediately, then you are lucky. So many people have opened themselves up to the attack of the enemy because they began to sleep spiritually. You don’t know when the devil is bringing his attack, stay awake.
