Awake Our Souls
A lot of us pray. We pray hard, with promises made when times are dark, but few are remembered, few are surrendered. The anthem rings in spite of us, in war and peace, inviting us to listen to the sound of the kingdom calling. Awake our souls, Lord! Tear down the walls so we can dance in Your freedom. Open our eyes to see; open our ears to hear from You, our King!
Ephesians 5:14 - “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.” Matthew 13:13, 16 – “Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 16But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.”
Jeremiah 33:3 - “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
There are so many days we miss it … fighting for our way instead of Yours. But when we surrender, we wake to remember the anthem rings in spite of us; in war and peace, inviting us to listen to the sound of the kingdom calling. Awake us, oh God, our King! Show us how to see and hear You ... and to answer Your call.
