I was 59 years old and had thought for most of my adult life that I was saved. We had a revival in 2008 at my church.
I had been praying to GOD to make satan. “Leave me alone about my salvation.” The last night of Revival the Evangelist’s sermon was directed AT ME. He looked directly at me and said “satan will NEVER bother you about your salvation. Just the opposite, he’ll try to convince you that you “are saved”.
Wow what a PUNCH IN THE HEART
I WENT HOME THAT NIGHT WITH A HEAVY ????.
I literally fell across my bed crying out to GOD “AM I SAVED…I HAVE GOT TO KNOW” I fell asleep crying and asking Him over and over. Early the next morning I woke up with the Holy Spirit telling me “NO BELOVED YOU DO NOT BELING TO ME. Again I cried out to GOD HELP ME. I LOVE YOU GOD I ACCEPT YOU AS MY SAVIOR. I AM FREE INDEED.
The end of Revival Sept 10,2008. I accepted CHRIST Sept 11,2008. (Note I retired in 2003 from Unckle Sam’s BATF, so Sept 11 had ESPECIALLY meaning to me already.)
A couple of days later I was reading my bible. In PROVERBS 3:5-6 it reads
“TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, LEAN NOT ON YOU OWN UNDERSTANDING. FOLLOW HIM IN ALL YOUR WAYS, AND HE WILL MAKE YOUR PATHS STRAIGHT.”
