Isaiah 52:1 "Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments..."
God wants us to be awakened to Who He is, His Person, His love and His Presence. In the Parables of Jesus we see how important it was to Him that we be awake, that we would not be caught by surprise. When we are awakened to His life, the reality of His Spirit is very…Continue
