Stay Alert

Woke means alert to injustice in society, especially racism. A sentence to clarify is a lot of what some people (not me) and even the Oxford English Dictionary use this example sentence, “we need to stay angry, and stay woke.”

Let’s look to scripture. The Bible is always our point of reference.

Romans 10:12 NKJV For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.

Romans 12:18 NKJV If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.

1 Peter 3:8 NKJV  Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous 

Ephesians 4:2 NKJV with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love

Philippians 2:3 NKJV  Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. 

Romans 12:17-21 NKJV Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Where in the word of God does He say to stay angry? Nowhere. We are called to love, forgive, show mercy, be humble and be longsuffering. We are not to return evil for evil.

Satan is the one who is the accuser and he wants to sow discord among us.

If you want to hate something, hate what the Lord hates and don’tbe caught partaking in any of the following things.

Proverbs 6:16-19 NKJV These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17A proud look,
A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.

What does the Lord love? A cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7). One who willingly gives freely of his own time or resources to further the gospel. Those who pursue peace. The humble.

Pray with me please

Dear God,

Let love always be our cry. May we hate the things that You hate and love the things that You love, We are not the judge, You are. One day You will make all things right. We trust You and we want to show mercy to others and fulfil that which You would have for us to do. Let our lives be a living sacrifice to You. You are awesome and we love You so much! Thank You for everything. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

  1. I am not “woke” or angry. I am, however, disappointed that many people today are pointing to racism in things or people who are not at all racist. I am very unhappy that our police are being persecuted for doing their jobs. I, personally, do not want to live in a city like Portland where the “woke mob” has taken over. Woke doesn’t mean just broke…it also probably means lost without Jesus.

    1. Well said. It is sad to see what our country is coming to. I know it has to happen before the antichrist comes into power. But it is so sad to see it all unfolding. Have a great day sister. God be with you.

  2. Yes, {{{Donna}}}, “…the Lord love(s) a cheerful giver … One who willingly gives freely of his own time or resources to further the gospel. Those who pursue peace. The humble.” The Lord loves you and me… He knows we pursue peace and we strive to be humble in all that we say and do. The Lord knows. Praise the Lord! ❤
