The Word of God is as, “Sweet as Honey”
God has Taken Me Through a Whole Lot of Things, Now I Believe I Can Tell You…
I have been a born-again believer in Christ Jesus since June of 1986, my 13th year of life. Now, since my natural birth on September 3, 1973, I ask myself, where has all of the time gone. Do you want to know something about the Word of God? It is all good, a matter of fact it’s as, “…sweet as honey…” Revelation 10:10. Yet, in the same verse, “…as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter”, it continues in verse 11 saying, “Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.” Now, I am finally doing just that.
Throughout my walk with God, he has let me see a few different things that some never get to see in their entire lives, some must wait until death. You yourself may see a slight glimpse of these things but you aren’t able to have time to rest in it, feel it, and know that you can do nothing about the situation you are in for a week, for a month, for a year, even for a decade.
Not knowing why God has put you in whatever position that he has is a little strange. When it comes to knowing the reason why God is doing something in your life, it is good to know that he is the final authority. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
It took me about twenty years to realize that God can do anything he wants with your life. I believe if I would have submitted to God earlier in my life I would not be in the position I am in now. When you feel that God is doing something wrong in your life, you need to wait and see how God is going to use the situation in your life, whether it is chastisement or to let others know that you believe in a big God. Don’t get me wrong, you should find Christ, get saved. Then do the will of the Father, work in the way that God wants you too. In my teens, after I was saved by the precious Blood of Christ, I wanted to do things my way, not God’s. I know now, that is a good reason that God had Blessed me with a giant cerebral Aneurysm. I was going to live my life the way that I wanted to live my life and that was final or, so I thought.
From an aneurysm in August of 1989 to the long road to recovery which, I don’t think I am off yet, to the starting of a family, until right now. One thing I do know is that you don’t get ahead of God, you will find yourself that doing things on your own is not the right way to do anything at all. In my early teen years, you could have called me Samson, not because of womanizing but because of the strength. I had just gotten Saved by the precious Blood of Christ during the Summer of my thirteen years of life. I believe God had plans for me but, I didn’t want to follow God’s plan for me. So, I was following my own plans for my life. I had to do something that would make me famous, yea that’s the ticket. I thought I was doing so well that I sort of pushed God out of my life, but little did I know that He was going to be in it.
