This morning I hit the snooze button! Just for a moment I thought. Two nights in a row we’ve been up a little late,. Two nights of revival and amazing works of the Lord. Getting home two nights after midnight? It’s too much, right?
Oh beloved, with the lord, it’s never “too” anything.  Maybe you don’t get out at night for meetings anymore. But you can travel in the Spirit through prayer anywhere. It’s not too late. God wants to use you to move heaven and earth and to bring the Kingdom of God into every situation of life.  You may think prayer is “all you can do.”  It’s the best part! People are counting on you to pray. God is looking for you to pray.  It’s not too much to pray always, without ceasing, all the time.
God wants you to know that you will be “too” something to some. And you’ll be “too” faithful for others. But the heavenlies applaud your diligence. The enemy shrinks in your praying presence.  Don’t be too alarmed that you are stirred up in the spirit and troubles seem to want to slow you down. It’s too bad!
God loves you and He is for you. Too bad for the darkness. Too awesome for you! Live in the now and work in the spirit and live in the light that is just too bright! And raise your hands too high as you follow Jesus with all your heart!
Ephesians 6:18  With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on every occasion and in every season] in the Spirit, and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition [interceding in prayer] for all God’s people.

Philippians 3:8-10 More than that, I count all things as loss compared to the surpassing excellence of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God on the basis of faith. 10I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to Him in His death.

About the Author:

Rebekah Beene


In a Christian Women’s meeting in 1983, Rebekah was given a prophetic message that she would write books. Several years ago she began writing stories about special holiday memories and travels, sharing God’s love and care through each story. God has gifted Rebekah with the ability to look at the natural and see the supernatural. Both Rebekah and her husband Danny have a heart to share the Gospel and the riches of life in Christ to everyone they meet. They have served in the local church and in ministry to motorcyclists. Danny is an ordained minister and they both have been Bible study teachers for many years. Rebekah also speaks at women’s retreats and conferences. Her tag line says it all “God loves you and He’s for you”.
