In the coming week, as we celebrate Christmas and the New Year, remain spiritually alert while enjoying the holiday festivities. This request for awareness is not about submitting to fear, suspicion, or negativity. It is about remaining spiritually aware in a critical moment of history.
While Satan and his minions are always at work, I am sensing something significant is afoot – something outside the norm of our past experience. These issues can slip under our spiritual radar while our attention is focused elsewhere.
Keep your eyes on the Lord and be sensitive and obedient to the nudges of the Spirit to pray. Some of what you might be asked to pray might seem strange and without any foundation in human reasoning. Be faithful to pray those unusual prayers even if you do not understand fully why you are being asked to pray. The Lord will use your prayers, and the prayers of other aware believers, to accomplish His will in profound ways. Those prayers will become tools of intervention averting the works of darkness that were initiated under the assumption we would remain unaware and uninvolved.
