Morning Thought: When you’re asleep you’re dead to the world around you. Someone can be standing really close to you, even trying to talk to you, but you can’t hear or see them. Jesus himself is speaking to his people, even standing in front of us, but if we’re asleep we won’t experience his reality. Today, wake up and arise so that you can hear and see the Lord’s glory. “Now Peter and his companions had been overcome with sleep; but when they were fully awake, they saw His glory and the two men standing with Him” (Luke 9:32 NASB).
