Matthew 13:25 (KJV) But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

The alarm is ringing; it is time to wake up! The Bible says in Ephesians 5:14 (NIV), “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Wake up from your slumber and do not allow the enemy to sow tares among that which you have sown, planted and watered. Look after what God has given you, treasure and nourish it. There is a saying which goes like this, “Never take your eye off the ball.” Stay focused on your goal, always be alert. For when you take your eye off the ball, and when you begin to lose your vision and you are no longer focused on your goal, and you are inactive in sharing your faith, or to put it another way, you are sleeping when you should be awake tending to your harvest field, then the enemy will come in to discourage you, to rob you and try to destroy your good work.

It was while Samson slept that Delilah cut off his locks of hair,

It was while Saul slept that David took away his sword,

It was while the ten virgins slept that the bridegroom came,

It was while the man slept that the enemy sowed weeds into his field.

The best serving soldiers, while on duty, will tell you to always be alert and ready for action. Stay alert in your prayer life, stay faithful to your Bible reading and devotional time with the Lord, always maintain a cutting edge to your faith and sharing the good news of gospel, stay focused on your goal, for when you do, you will not be found sleeping.

My friend, when you are on fire for God, you are never sleeping! Your spiritual man is always alert, ready for service and fully focused on his goal. Having your eyes closed half way, as if a sleeping, while having a mediocre approach to serving God, becomes worldliness. What is worldliness? Worldliness is that which cools my affection towards God. It is time wake up, rise up and never be found sleeping, but always busy doing the Master’s business.

God bless you my friend, Matthew
