I was raised in the church my entire life, as I got older and left for college I became distracted and drifted away from Christ and the church; although I remained a believer, I was not regularly attending service for a few years and my Christian Stewardship suffered as a result. I fell on difficult times emotionally; I felt lost, I was uncertain about my future career path, lonely, and struggled to find happiness in life. During my darkest hours I continuously felt a calling from God telling me to surrender my life to him, to put him first in all that I do, and that he would see me through and guide me along the righteous path that my heart had always desired.
One night I was lying in bed dwelling on my current circumstance again God spoke to my heart calling me to him, only this time it was like a little voice in my head went off telling me exactly what I needed to hear. I remember like it was yesterday…God spoke to my heart that night in plain words and said to me:
“Son, I will be your strength in the difficult times, I will deliver you from evil, I will redeem you from your sins, I am your victory, I am your wisdom, I am your strength, I am your deliverer, I am your redeemer…Through me ALL things are possible, No weapon formed against you shall prosper, delight yourself in me, trust in me and I will fight your enemies for you, I will guide you along the path of righteousness, I will bless you in abundance, I will protect you from evil, I will BE YOUR VICTORY .”
As soon as I heard and received this message from God I was brought to tears and felt the spirit of Christ lift me up. I knew from that moment on that I would never be the same, and a peaceful, calm, and warm spirit filled my heart, I prayed and I knew then that my Heavenly Father Would see me through. As time progressed that void in my life was filled by the greatness of my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. I have received God into my life and wake up with joy knowing that he has my back. I feel like a new person, my faith has given me peace and comfort during difficult times, knowing that every storm shall pass and God will NEVER abandon me.
“He lifted me out of the messy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand, He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.”
Just as he did for David, God did for me! He lifted me out of the “messy pit” and filled my spirit with a new ‘song’ of hope and joy that overtook my heart. I have learned to put God first in all that I do, and I have a conviction in my heart knowing that he will provide me with all that I need and will see me through to my divine destiny. My number one priority is to fulfill his plan for me! God Bless and know that nothing you are going through is too much for God to handle. Put your faith in God and HE WILL DELIVER YOU!
