“Do this, knowing that this is a critical time. It is already the hour for you to awaken from your sleep [of spiritual complacency]; for our salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed [in Christ]” Romans 13:11, Amplified.
An emergency means a serious, unexpected, and often dangerous situation requiring immediate action.
It is one thing to know you have an emergency. Is another thing to have an emergency, but not realize that you are in it. What can be the difference maker is the timing that you realize it. What will be the difference maker is how quickly you respond. Your wise and courageous response in an emergency could be all the difference.
We are in an emergency moment. Your response to God to take your relationship higher and deeper in Him is important. The instructions He’s giving you about your assignment are important, especially regarding your attention to the people you love in your life. The Lord wants us to recognize this crucial time for what it really is, and do not delay in maximizing it. Your response is going to literally save lives.
Prayer: Father, I praise You! We are truly in the midst of an emergency moment. There is a crisis happening all around me. Jesus, I recognize it. We are calling on You. Help me to respond to You. Help me to not delay. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
