There are “rest stops” in the word of God and if we are willing to pullover and “rest” for a minute in those locations they will yield a harvest of righteousness of the likes that words can’t explain. Today, I was praying Psalm 17 and the very last verse was a “rest stop” today and I wanted to share it with you. Park your heart for just a minute, stretch your spiritual legs, and get out of the “car” and smell the fresh air as the Lord is giving us a “rest stop” in His word this morning.

Psalm 17:15 says, “As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness;

I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness.”

Many of us have spoken about the Great Awakening that is happening worldwide, but today, the Lord stopped on this verse and said, “Read it again.” AS FOR ME, I WILL SEE YOUR FACE IN RIGHTEOUSNESS; I SHALL BE SATISFIED WHEN I AWAKE IN YOUR LIKENESS. As we are awakened, we are satisfied, because we are waking up to the truth that we have been created in the image of God.

Knowledge and awakening are not synonymous. We can have knowledge of something and not be awakened to it. It can be truth, we can have heard it, quote it, know it, and not be awakened to it. Awakening is the aha moment, the revelation, the illumination of something we know. We know so much more than we are awakened to. Which is why there is still an ache; a desire; a sense of incompleteness. We need to have what we know be awakened inside of us, so we embody what we know.

Song of Songs 2:10-15 “Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. I have come as you have asked to draw you to My heart and lead you out. For now is the time My beautiful one. The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. Can you discern the new day of destiny breaking forth around you? the early signs of My purpose and plans bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whisper, there is change in the air.”
