Awakening Champions Day 2 – AWAKENING IDENTITY

Awakening Champions Day 2 – AWAKENING IDENTITY

“AWAKE YOU WHO SLEEP, and ARISE from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.”

Ephesians 5:14

Introduction:                                                                                     

Awakening is defined as:  something that emerges from sleep; an awareness that arrives; an illumination or revelation of something unknown.

The people of God need an awakening as to who they are in Christ. Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Spiritual identity is at the blueprint of our being created of the image of our Creator, as well as, the fundamental revelation of Christ’s ministry as the Son of the Living God.

The most undeveloped area as Christians, as well as, the most attacked area as Christians is the image of God and our identity as God’s children.  The most attacked area of the Christian’s being is the mind.

As we pray, we must in some places, learn to GUARD OUR HEARTS/MINDS from the fiery darts of deception and the misguided results of a renewed mind.  On the other hand, we must develop the ability TO GIVE OUR HEARTS/MINDS to the renewing of the Word of God with the power of the Holy Spirit to sign, seal, and deliver to us what the Father has already blessed us with in heavenly places.  (See Eph. 1:3-4)

 

 

  1. IDENTITY THEFT – Guard Your Vision 

“Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish.”  Proverbs 29:18 Amplified

  • We were created in the image and likeness of God – Gen. 1:26-28
  • We need revelation knowledge of who Christ is:

Matthew 16:13-18 NKJV  “…flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.  And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”

 

“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people…”   (Eph. 1:17-18 NIV)

 

The Message Paraphrase:

“God—make you intelligent and discerning knowing him personal, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what he is calling you to do.”  (Eph. 1:17-18)

Pray For:

  • Prophetic understanding of the Father’s everlasting love for you. (Jer. 31:1; 33:3)
  • Spiritual release of God’s love poured out to you. (Rom. 5:5)
  • A vision of the Father delighting in you. (Zeph. 3:17 NIV)
  • Give the Holy Spirit permission to uproot the causes of deception, distortion of images, and misunderstandings of sonship. (Psa. 51:6, 10-12; Psa. 139:23-24; Psa. 19:14)
