Ephesians 5:14-16 “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
Two conditions were necessary for Admiral Yamamoto’s thoughts following his attack on Pearl Harbor to be proved true (see previous post). The awakening of a sleeping giant was not enough; that awakened giant needed to be filled with “terrible resolve.”
We must not be simply awakened by the continued attacks on us, our faith, and our God. Instead, we must be resolved to do something about it. Success in an off-cycle election is small stakes. The real test of our resolve will come through a Biblical steadfastness in our prayer lives, our testimonies, and our votes. We must redeem the time we have been given, or the window of opportunity to turn this nation back to God may irreversibly close. One small success will not reverse the tide of secularism in America. Now that we are awake we must stay active or our influence will atrophy once again.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AN AWAKENED CHRISTIAN POPULACE TO FOLLOW UP ON SUCCESS WITH CONTINUED RESOLVE. It has taken a continued crisis to awaken us. May terrible resolve prompt us to never slumber again!
