Yesterday I told you about how I asked God whether I need to get up at one o’clock at night because I heard something outside our house. His response was a loud “yes” through my sleeping husband’s voice.
After I was convinced that Kobus was really asleep, I literally jumped out of bed! You quickly get rid of any tiredness if you believe God is speaking to you!
I walked to our living room to see where the noise was coming from. After thorough investigation, the only thing I could see was our neighbor that was busy getting out if his car. It was quite unusual for him to be outside so late at night and I realized that the noise I heard came from him.
This really confused me, why would God tell me so directly to get up for no reason?
Just as I was about to get back into bed, I felt in my heart: “Pray for him!” Obediently I lifted up this man to our Father. We only met these neighbors once and don’t know much about them, so I had to pray as God laid it on my heart.
Till today, I am not sure why it was so important that I had to pray for this man, but I know it was important enough for God because He sure used an unusual way to get me out of bed!
In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other's spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.
