Day 140

BAPTIZER

"He will baptize you with
the Holy Spirit
and with fire."
Matthew 3:11John 13:35

 

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, because My Spirit has baptized you with love and power, you have been filled with every good thing you need to complete the work I gave you. But that filling is ongoing. Do not quench My Spirit with disobedience. Run to Me at the moment of your betrayal, and let My purifying fires do their work through you. I will immerse you daily with My love, My grace, My goodness, and My power.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, You baptized me not with water, but with Your Spirit of love. You placed a holy fire in my heart, an unquenchable flame that burns with the desire to know You, and to testify to Your faithfulness daily. You are my baptizer, Lord. Thank You for keeping the fire burning.

SIMPLE TRUTH

It's hard to get a fire going when the wood is wet.
