This is my testimony about a 25 year walk in the world, because the Lord allowed me to test myself by being foolish even though, I knew of him and forsook his teachings. Because I thought I was wise and could handle the evil of the world. What a lesson, and as such the following of what I learned during that 25 year apprenticeship to become a humble servant obedient unto His call as an instrument to accomplish His will, in all future missions presented.
For those who are currently on the same journey I experienced as a know it all, you are not alone. Here’s what my battles have taught me, as I moved forward the one thing each trial proved to me was just how much I thought I knew, was of little value other than to teach me how much I didn’t know and to reach out or better yet listen to the Holy Spirit; that gut feeling that little tingle something is not quite right.
Then I realized each battle scar was leading me deeper into my relationship with Yeshua. I would advance deeper into our relationship according to the depth of the wrong I had committed, as that was the amount of love and compassion the Lord had applied to rescue me at that time.
What I realized, was Yeshua will never allow any malady to confront you, any more than what your of dealing with, even as an unsaved or backslidden person. Then I understood, that part of my walk, in life, was like a proving ground constantly being broken down and rebuilt, creating memories to be wiped away, once we understand, we can be one of the chosen people, being distinct and separated from the world, of another spirit, having principle and integrity; which we could never obtain, if we were not chosen by Yeshua to be such, and sanctified by his Spirit.
Once I discerned that, I realized Yeshua had wiped my past life’s slate clean, it was I, who was dragging those past memories along and all I needed to do was let go of the memories and step forward and up, to acknowledge I had pledged to the Lord, by accepting his call to follow him, was to bring obedience, (which I learned I was lacking during my period of rebellion), forward and apply it to being the most honorable individual I could be, by displaying my walk as a distinct person, demonstrating to the world, I am of another spirit, I am principled, and practice the teachings of the Holy Spirit constantly, because Yeshua during my 25 years of rebellion developed a personal loving relationship with me as one of His distinct modern day disciples.
Blessings brothers and sisters, blessings, know his love is always present and He is continuously shaping and molding you, and drawing you deeper into your personal relationship now, not because of what was, but what is now, because of who you represent in being one of his distinct believers. Where else will you find this deep of devoted Love, compassion and forgiveness to be available to walk in daily.
Someone asked me if I would change anything about my past life which contained all those moments of trials and tribulations, pains, emotional hurts, disappointments, successes and failures, my answer, “NO.” because as I deal with life now, those past scars show me what Yeshua has shaped me into as His servant and I would not want to miss being that new person He has brought me to be in His name.
The Holy Spirit revealed we should try to hold onto it, as a distinct believer of Yeshua, being from the book of spiritual wisdom Proverbs 22: 1-2 A good name is preferable to be chosen than great riches; and loving favour rather than silver and gold 2). The rich and poor meet together; the Lord is the maker of them all.
We send our warm blessings to all who join our journey through this life as distinct believers in service to our Lord Yeshua.
