It doesn’t matter what time it is, when God has something to say to you, you might as well get up and listen. You can lay in bed and fight the urge to get up if you want to, but that is all you will do is lay there, you won’t sleep. Sometimes, the new puppy keeps you up, sometimes it is the snoring in the bed next to you, but sometimes it is something bigger.
I was watching a commercial on TV with this monster going around waving his arms trying to scare people. That is his job to scare people. But no one is paying any attention to him. They are just ignoring him as if he wasn’t there. First it is a big truck, he stands in front of the truck and waves his arm, and the truck just rolls right over him, then a man reading his newspaper, and the man just flips his newspaper at him, as if to say go away, you are pestering me.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we would do that when the devil tries to put wrong thinking in our heads. When he tries to get you to do something wrong, or say the wrong thing, or tries to make you think you are sick, when Jesus says you are healed. When the devil tries to tell you the economy is going to bring you down, when Jesus says He will provide. Wouldn’t it be great if we would just learn to brush him off, like a pestering fly buzzing around, instead of giving him so much power over our thought life.
We have the ability to do just that. We have the power to tell him to get lost, I am not interested in what you have to say. We have to choose to use that power, or to sit there and let him sink deeper and deeper into our thoughts. The deeper you let him sink into your mind, the harder it will be to get him out and to realize that he is a liar.
So the next time you can’t sleep, get up, listen to what God has to say to you. Get the word out and look up the scriptures that show you the promises God has made to you. Don’t ignore the urging of the HOLY SPIRIT when He is trying to get you up out of bed to tell you something. Don’t brush him off like a pestering fly. Let Him in, and let Him renew your mind and your thinking with the word of GOD. And yes, sometimes He may be on a different time zone than you are on, and you may say, can’t it wait until morning, but sometimes it is too important to wait. God has His timing, and we have ours. We have to learn to listen, no matter what time it is. AMEN!
