You were chosen by Almighty God in eternity past, to live in the present, to forge the future (Eph. 2:10). You have divine destiny. No one on earth can accomplish what you have been commissioned to do!
Sound asleep, I was awakened by an exceptionally pleasant voice speaking in my room. The message was articulated with extreme clarity. Upon hearing the words, immense comfort and courage flooded my heart. This word was audible; it was not something I heard in my head or heart—I heard it with my ears.
But let me be straightforward: I did not see who spoke to me, because when I looked in the direction of the voice, I was suddenly blinded by a bright flash of light. It was almost as if a strong flash from a camera blinded my eyes. Yet, He continued to speak, saying, "Tell My people they have purpose—they have been chosen by Me for Me."
Upon hearing this declaration, I was immediately overwhelmed with joy and excitement. Never allow the devil to discourage you again; you have divine purpose. You are divinely prepared to accomplish the task God has assigned you. You can do something no other human being can do.
Meditate and ponder this message; believe that you have been chosen by Christ for Christ and your life will take on even greater zeal and purpose. Jesus said:
"You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that the Father may give you whatever you ask Him in My name" (John 15:16).
Your confidence and courage will soar as you understand in greater capacity the depth of these words, "You are chosen by Christ." Let these words wash over your soul—they are like refreshing water to the thirsty. You have been chosen by Christ, for Christ; the choice was made before the foundation of the world (Eph. 1:4). Knowing this promise will release you from rejection and depression.
The goal is to finish the course and to be able to say with all confidence, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith" (2 Tim. 4:7). It is to that individual Christ will say, "Well done, you good and faithful servant" (Matt. 25:21b).
God gives us His power for purpose; the gifts are tools, not toys, and anointing is for action (Acts 1:8).
God releases His anointing on His children for one main purpose: to impact the nations by bringing the hurting and lost to Himself.
Recently, while ministering in a large arena, I saw what appeared to be a silver flowing river above the heads of the people. This beautiful river flowed for a short moment, then disappeared. I questioned, "Lord, what is that?"
He quickly replied, "I am releasing a spirit of evangelism upon earth."
So I said simply, "God is releasing a spirit of evangelism!" The moment these words came from my mouth, nine people jumped to their feet, ran forward, fell on their knees repenting and gave their lives to Christ Jesus, receiving Him as their personal Savior. No one was giving an altar call; it was just a burst of the Holy Spirit.
We are being summoned to the harvest field. God would have all men to be saved and come to know Christ Jesus as both Savior and Lord (1 Tim. 2:4).
The Lord spoke an incredibly encouraging word, saying; "My people are becoming power-hungry for all the right reasons."
The first step in becoming anointed for action is a deep driving hunger to see change; you must become fed up with business as usual in the church. This is a season of sensitivity. If you seek Him, You will find the Lord in a much deeper, intimate way (Jer. 29:12-13).
The Lord has been fanning the flame of discontentment within the hearts of His people. He is creating an insatiable hunger to see His power revealed so that we will not settle for less than He desires to give us (Ps. 90:16-17). The discontentment is driving us to seek the Lord and to search for His answers to life's problems (Ps. 42:1-2).
The Spirit of truth is preparing you for spiritual promotion.
You have a divine destiny. You are to be a powerful conduit for change. You are anointed to be a history-maker and one that will be a changer of our culture. Make up your mind that you are going to make a difference. Be like Daniel: Commit your whole heart to God and decide to live pure and clean even in the midst of sin and shame around you (see Dan. 1:8).
