Recently, the Lord convicted me that my life was filled with lukewarmness. I was wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. I was a part of the Laodicean Church and didn’t know it.
As you can imagine, this wasn’t one of my finer moments, but I repented and asked to be shown how to change.
The Holy Spirit led me to the Beatitudes:
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven;
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted;
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth;
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled;
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy;
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God;
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God;
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. (Matthew 5:3-11)
I believe we Americans need to embrace these verses and learn how to walk in their truths.
My prayer today.
Lord, convict us American believers of our lukewarmness. Show us we need to buy gold from You, that has been refined in the fire, and white garments to cover our nakedness, and eye salve to anoint our eyes so we can see how much we need You. (Based on Revelation 3:18)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Thursdays to fast and pray for America.

As I contemplate the world around me and all that is going on, I feel like a grain of sand on a beach. Yet I know that my Father in Heaven cares and provides for each of us and has a perfect plan. Sitting here waiting for Donna’s sister to be taken to surgery I pray for a positive outcome and total healing plus speedy recovery. Perhaps the men of BMF Temecula could tomorrow pray also for Linda. God bless and give the brothers my best.
Thanks. I will check you out. God bless you.
Maybe you and I are just grains of sand on the beach, but the beach would be a little less full if we weren’t there. We men of BMF will pray for Linda tomorrow. (Tell Linda all will work our well, but it may take a little longer than she hopes it would. Yet, in the healing process, God will reveal Himself in a marvelous way to her as the Father who loves her with all of His heart.)
Thank you so much for sharing this with me. I am studying slow through this and have found plenty in me that is lukewarm as well. God bless you as you stay before Him !
I’m still knee deep in studying and checking out my heart, too. God bless you.
Janelle wanted u to know that Daddy gave her this same passage on Thursday. Be blessed my friend. 😀
Tell Janelle that she rocks! God bless you.
