Luke 21:36 (AMP)
â€œ Keep awake then and watch at all times [be discreet, attentive, and ready], praying that you may have the full strength and ability and be accounted worthy to escape all these things [taken together] that will take place, and to stand in the presence of the Son of Man.â€�
It is important for us to pay more attention to what the Lord is saying in todayâ€™s Bible passage. As believers, we need to wake up, wake up in the place of prayer; wake up in the place of meditative study of the word of God. Those who will survive the tough times as believers are those who meditate on Godâ€™s word; watching and praying. Our Lord did not just caution us to keep awake and be prayerful to survive the tough times, you see, we need strength to stand before the Son of Man.
Friend, as for me, I want to see His face. I want to trust Him to take me through all these things and give me strength to stand before Him when He returns. I donâ€™t want to be ashamed at His appearance, because many will be. I want to resemble Him, He is coming for those that look like Him. So what must I do? I must not give up on Him now. He hasnâ€™t given up on me. What if I fall? I must stand up, and get back into the race. Micah 7:8 says â€� Rejoice not against me, O my enemy! When I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light to me.â€�
Dear friend, keep awake and be watchful at all times, pray for strength to escape all these things and to stand before the Son of Man.
Prayer: Father please grant me the grace to keep awake and to be alert at all times. Help me to run this race till I reach the finish line, in Jesus name I pray, Amen.
