Read/few verse/read out of context/won’t get full meaning Isa 52:1-2 fall under this category.

• Whole book Isa. Structured in a poetic way yes

• but also conversational way as well

• People would give God a complaint/God would answer thru Isaiah comply to their complaint.

Let’s go back Isa 51:9…remember/Isa. 52:1

• God says/Awake Awake 52/people in 51:9

I’m awake I never sleep

Scripture/weeping may endure for a night but joy comes/morning

• Found out morning doesn’t happen/says/AM clock

• Morning happens when you wake up

• throw covers off/open up your eyes/goodness of God

In other words, moment you decide to get up I bet you’ll see God right/middle/your circumstances/difficulties

I wish you’d shake someone next to you and ask them are you awake are you awake.

• Don’t miss this don’t sleep thru this

Mark 4:37-41…Disciples mad at Jesus

• Disciples told Jesus you need/wake up to what’s going on…

• no Jesus said to disciple you need to wake up to who I am


We spend too much time trying to alert God to our problems…

• God I got a bill over here…unresolved issue over here…

• jacked up person you need to fix um

• We think if we alert God/problem he’ll do something

Meanwhile we miss God, cause he’s standing in our problem trying to alert us of his presence.

• God saying I’m right here, right in/storm/stern

• Awake Awake Zion. We got to wake up repeat

• you who slumber--wake up/Stretch

• Stop hitting snooze wake up

• So you don’t miss God’s direction

God may have wanted to correct you of something/move to something else/but you missed/sleeping.


Always thought this proverb was pretty convicting. Pro 10:5….

• Every day you wake up/harvest/taking…..

• sleep thru it it will be to your shame

Enemy can come in and steal:

• Very blessing God planted in front of you

• praise God put inside of you

Come on wake up and praise him.


2. Attire Isa. 52:1….

• Wake up/get dressed/pick out your clothes for the day….

• Differences between male/female…What is clean…

Spiritually speaking you got to get dressed before you go out into the world or your going to get hurt.

• Clothe yourself/strength

• Make a decision/put/Isaiah calls your garments of splendor

• This/day/life of praise/I alert myself

• look out/ways God is speaking/showing himself/my life

• now I got to get dressed

• I’m ready spiritually/see God
