Seeds of time...becoming fruitful
THIS IS THE DAY Seeds of faithfulness...yield fruit.
My Pastor shared with us last night during our weekly prayer meeting; of a young man who called him to say THANK YOU. A young man he hadn't seen in YEARS.
More than 13 years ago, my Pastor was asked to debate another Pastor about some Bible Doctrines. The other Pastor would quote the "man" he followed and his own interpretations...while my Pastor always used KJV Scripture. During this time this same young man...was in the meeting listening. A follower of his dad's religion.
He spoke with my Pastor about the troubled heart he has had ever since that meeting! Though he stayed in this religion many more years, even to the point of becoming a Pastor himself...admitted that the day of the debate, he was IMPRESSED by the fact that my Pastor used nothing but Scripture to prove these doctrines of truth in the GOD of the King James Bible.
He testified that he came out of his DECEPTION! and believes the BIBLE with all his heart.
Over TIME...after this seed was planted...it began to bud and blossom as the photo shows in the perfect illustrations found in creation..by our GOD.
During this time of watering...another Pastor spoke only the Scriptures to prove GOD. He too mentioned the importance of SCRIPTURE with SCRIPTURE!!
This young man, as he preached...became convicted each time as SCRIPTURE he had begun to read... comparing Scripture with Scripture.... bore truth in his heart against the very words he was preaching and in his deceptive religion. He could no longer believe this false religion.
Many years....but fruitful in it's time.
God knows...how encouraging....as we wait on the LORD...and LET HIM...bring forth the fruit of righteousness and a heart seeking TRUTH.
THIS DAY...once again...in Gods faithfulness...I am...ENCOURAGED
to be faithful...to wait on the LORD...and see the GOODNESS OF THE LORD!
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8
I pray this day...you also are encouraged!!
THIS IS THE DAY...LET US REJOICE...AND BE GLAD IN IT!!!
