I went to bed praying for two hours in the Spirit.

I woke up with this burning word in my Spirit.

This word is for those who are in the middle, and a confirmation for those who are strong in their faith. Don’t be deceived.

We are judged and awarded by how we lived according to the Word of God. We are in the world but not of it.

We walk as children of light not darkness. We love in words and actions. We are not to participate in lawlessness, hatred, killing, lying, destroying, and cheering for those who do evil. We are the light and the salt. We are the beacon of light that leads and rescues those lost in a raging sea. We shine as the stars in the darkest of storms, and we are the vessels filled of the Spirit of God bringing hope to a hopeless world. We refresh others. We give of the water that they shall never thirst again.

We are empowered, called, selected, and chosen by a God who did the choosing.


JESUS SAID, “You didn't choose me, but I chose you.

I have appointed you to go, to produce fruit that will last,

and to ask the Father in my name to give you whatever you ask for.”

John 15:16
