Permission to Wake Me Up.


– Hey welcome to the 180 everybody. My name is Jeff, thanks for being here today. I’ve got a quick story for ya. I was visiting with a friend, and we were talking about some sleepless nights. You ever have those nights where you’re just awake, you don’t sleep well, you’re up for two, three hours? My buddy said something to me I will never forget. He said, you know Jeff, I’ve given God permission to wake me up anytime he wants to. And when I heard those words I was like, wow, maybe this isn’t such a bad thing. Maybe this is an opportunity to spend time with our creator. Revelation two says this. It says, but I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first. Do you remember when you first said I’m a follower of Jesus. I love the Lord my God with all my heart, and you thought about him all the time. But then something happens. All the sudden you’re up at night and it’s this really bad thing and you’re complaining and you’re upset and things happen. Well I love the vision that God has permission to wake me up anytime he wants to because I get to spend time with him. What about you? Those divine interruptions throughout your day. Are those bad things? Or are they opportunities to spend time with your father who loves you more than you know? I love that vision. God has permission to wake me up anytime he wants to. Thanks for being a part of the 180 guys, have a great day.
