So I was thinking…
Why is it one person falls in love with God's Word and another reads out of obligation? I was a desciplined obligation reader most of my life. I did a pretty good job of reading the Bible or at least I thought I did. I carried it around sometimes and religiously took it to church. I could even quote some scripture.
Then one day, my life collapsed and I couldn't live without it. I began reading God's Word because my life depended on it. I felt incredible pressure and stress that was only relieved by reading His Word. I began appreciating the power of God's Word, I began praying His Word into difficult circumstances. My eyes were opened to God's pleasure in hearing me repeat His Words with authority over the situation I was in.
My confidence and faith in God was simple. He was either real and active in my life through prayer or He had fraudently misrepresented Himself. I chose to believe Him as real and He chose to reveal Himself to me. My life has never been the same.
Today I met a young lady, who has discovered the need for God with expectations of living a life pleasing and acceptable to God. Her life had not always been that way. She knew God as a young child, but over time drifted away from the God of life to the gods of death. God in a miraculous fashion rescued her from a hell here on earth and a hell that was calling her name with eternal consequences.
The battle was real and of angelic proportions. It encourages me to hear of a God Spot where there is no doubt to its authenticity. Just imagine…. angels battling for your soul.
