Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 NKJV
God’s Word reveals where we are in our relationship with Jesus. It pierces the darkness of unbelief. It strips away the false foundation of self-confidence. It reveals the consequences of our choices. God’s Word tells us where we will spend eternity!
God’s Word reveals the path that leads to death and destruction. It also reveals the path that leads to blessing and eternal life.
Several years ago Jesus began speaking to me about my life. God called me His servant. The Lord told me I would be His witness and a minister of the Gospel. Jesus stirred up a desire within me to trust Him in a way I had never trusted Him before!
God gave me the idea of sending out e-mails to share with other people the things He puts in my heart. How could I be sure it was God speaking to me?
God calls people who trust Him with their lives His servants. We are all called to be His witnesses. The Word of God tells us we are called to be ministers of the Gospel. We are called to testify of the mercy and grace of God. We are called to share God’s love with people!
God speaks to us through our thoughts other people and the circumstances of life. God can also speak to us through dreams and visions.
When God speaks how will you determine if it is the Lord? We must test everything by the gold standard of God’s Word. The Lord will never contradict His written Word. The bible is the filter through which all personal experience and revelation must pass.
There are many voices vying for our attention. Most of them conflict with the Word of God. They distract us from living according to the Lord’s perfect will.
If you have been born again through faith in Jesus Christ you are His servant. Serve Him with a pure heart. You are God’s witness. Testify of His love for you and your love for Him. You are a minister of the gospel. Trust God to speak to you and through you!
A witness cannot give second hand information or hearsay when called to testify.
If you have not experienced God’s love first hand call out to Jesus today. Choose the path that leads to eternal life where there is unending joy. Surrender your heart and life to Jesus Christ!
Almighty God wants to guide you along the path of your life with the light of His Word.
Trust Jesus in ways you have never trusted Him before!
