Day 1 + of God and NOTHING of comfort! Waking her up!
When God calls our attention with a strong word, is not to condemn us but to warn us, because in this verse we see that God is giving us an order saying: Wake up women who are carefree and listen to my voice.
How come? Were they physically lain down? No! They were spiritually lain down; they were trusting in their salvation, but at the same time they were lying to their selves.
God give us time to react and change our behaving, for our own good! The comfort has taken us to be far away from God, distracted with worldly things, I’m going to give a few examples:
Soap operas, laziness or desire in not being attach to a spiritual purpose, gossip, bad eyes, bad thoughts, being unfaithful in the vows and compromises with God, backbiting, rancor, bad behaving, worldly attitudes, jealously, envy, using inappropriate and provocative clothes; well there are so much things that put sad the Holy Spirit.
Let’s put a finish to it!
When I was an assistant I received another assistant to stay at my house for a few days, I noticed that she watched a soap opera in the evening meeting, I remembered that I put my uniform on and she was still in the couch, completed into the soap opera, I asked her: “You are not going to church? You are not going to change?”
She responded: “No, I’m staying.”
I went to the church and when I came back, she was already sleeping. How sad seeing someone losing too much time!
It was night of liberation, there were so many people who needed help, and how can a person get to this level?
She was a person tied, nothing worked for her! She never stayed at a job, she never had a place to live, she was always moving, from house to house, and she wasn’t organized, her room was a disaster and her dirty clothes were a lot, she loved sleeping late, and she would always think about her love life. Now she is in the world, alone, with her life tied, with a sad face, getting old. But the root of it is that she didn’t have an active spiritual life.
I learned the following: if you don’t overcome the spiritual world, you are not going to overcome the physical world, everything you overcome in the spiritual world. That’s the reason why so many women inside of church are frustrate, because they are waiting that everything would come free and by magic; and that is never going to happen, you can sit and wait because God doesn’t make magic!
Do you want a change? Fight! Because who is in the fight is there to win! Who fights never thinks to give up, is going for all or nothing, doesn’t accept to lose, being humillated by the world. We are going to prepare a burlap (sackcloth) and we are going to humble ourselves all week, we are going to follow the Holy Orentation; but is to humble yourself, because it won’t make sense to put on the sackcloth and stay quite thinking in other things, thinking about giving up. Let’s hate our spiritual situation, we are going to be with you, we are in the same fight! And your victory is going to be ours.
In the midnight we are going to put on the sackcloth and we are going to humble ourselves during this purpose, let’s do it for 2 times a week, let’s separate Monday and Tuesday, to be humble and to call the attetion of our God.
