THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL...
DATE: SUNDAY NOVEMBER 20TH, 2016.
TEXT: Proverbs 19:15, Matthew 25:1-13, 1st Peter 4:7
THEME: TIME TO WAKE UP
MESSAGE: 
“9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? 10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.” (Proverbs 6:9-11)
The scripture is really worried about the level of negligence going on in the lives of many supposed believers whereby they are likened to people who are asleep. Sleeping at a time when they are supposed to be awake, will ultimately condemn them to poverty and lack. A sluggard is a lazy person who sleeps at odd hours. By spending so much time sleeping, it means that the person is extending an open invitation to the spirit of poverty to come and possess him/her.
An ignorant person is as good as someone that is asleep.
Arising out of sleep implies not just waking from sleep, it also includes coming out of spiritual ignorance. This requires being spiritual – drawing closer to God, reading His word and applying the principles therein. Are you among those that have been living negligent Christian life instead of a committed one? The scripture is asking you, “How long do you intend to continue this way?”
You have taken many things concerning your life for granted for a long time. It is time for you to begin to take things seriously. If not, you risk trading your destiny for reproach and shame. But that is not the will of God for you. You do not have all the time in the world. The world is gradually winding up. You must play your part diligently and leave the stage with your held high. Therefore, you must take an urgent step and watch unto prayer.

Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Any spirit of sleeping and slumbering blocking my spiritual eyes, be cast out, in Jesus' name.
2. Any spirit of procrastination hindering my spiritual development; be ousted, by fire, in Jesus' name.
3. Any satanic network set up against my life, scatter by fire, in Jesus' name.
4. Any ancient gate raising its head against my advancement; be broken in pieces, in Jesus' name.
5. Father, give me the grace to watch and pray always, in Jesus' name.
6. Any projection of weakness released against our G. O and our mummy in the Lord; turn to strength from on high, in Jesus' name.
