ALL messages from God are powerful whether He delivers them to us straight from the Bible or speaks to our hearts by His Spirit which He always does in line with the Bible. But for me, some messages are louder and stronger than others. Like this one which I believe with all my heart is for us all.
The Lord spoke this to my heart one morning before I got started going forward in the day.
“Today marks the beginning of the rest of your life. What will you do with it? Will you be entirely devoted to me? Will you put your entire trust in me? Will you be entirely faithful? Will you live your life now with a total consecration to me? Will I be your number one love? It is your choice. Will you faithfully follow me this day and for always? You have a choice. Choose life. Choose me. Be totally devoted to me…”
Friend, the Holy Spirit only and always speaks in line with the Bible, so we MUST check what we believe we hear from the Lord to see if it lines up. Does this message line up? Read the Bible from start to finish and throughout you will see how exceedingly emphatic the Lord God almighty is that we devote our lives entirely to Him through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord can’t stand lukewarm believers in Him. That’s exactly how I used to be. I called Him Lord, prayed when I felt like it and wanted something, and carried on ruling and reigning in what I thought was my own life. Now I understand I belong to Jesus, and I am totally sold out to Him. I am wholly His.
Please take this message to heart. Examine your life. Are your thoughts, words, and actions an indicator that you are utterly devoted to Christ? If not, right now, please my friend, hand your heart and life over entirely to Christ. For this day. And forevermore!
Oh my Lord, please Father, take every person you want to read this message and bring them right to it. But please don’t let them just skim over the words and hurry on with their lives. Bring strong conviction, Father, as you have in my own life, that lukewarm does not please you. Lead them to repentance if they are halfhearted about you, dear Lord. Turn them into sold out followers of you. Help them to be totally devoted. And show them the beauty and joy of living utterly for you! Yes, Lord, it is HARD on the human flesh for us to deny ourselves and live according to your ways which are so contrary to the world’s ways, but I pray every person you bring to this message would understand that the sacrifice we make in living for you is nothing compared with the magnificence of belonging to you forevermore. Thank you, Lord, AMEN!
““And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,
‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:14-16
