A certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, and kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet. ~Acts 5:1-2~

My Child,

>During the crusades of the twelfth century, some crusaders paid mercenary warriors to fight in their places. Because it was a war fought for “religious” reasons, the crusaders required the mercenaries to be baptized before going into battle. A they were being baptized, some of the mercenaries let themselves go under water but held their swords out because they didn’t want to submit the use of their swords to Jesus.

What is it that you are holding out of the water right now in your Christian walk? Don’t be afraid to submerge everything in me. Let me bring those high and dry areas under my cleansing, healing waters. Then I can use everything about you as a blessing in my name.

Your Father,
