“But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29 KJV
Thank you Jesus. Theres someone here that needs this message. I don’t even use reddit but the spirit moved me to make an account and post this.
This has been the best year of my 23 year old life. In the months prior to December 2019, I felt the Lord calling on me. But each time I made “effort” to get intimate with God, I didn’t do it 100%. Fast forward to New Years Eve and I felt the Lord telling me again, “it’s time”. I’ve had a pretty rough couple of years but i’m not going to give my full testimony yet, i’ll do another post another time. So while my everyone else was out partying, and while my family was downstairs watching the ball drop, there I was in my room, starting the Old Testament. Looking back the moment was pretty surreal because I remember looking at my bible and it’s almost as if God was saying “theres nothing to lose but everything to gain”. Fast forward to today and I can tell you that this is the first time in my life that I can truly say the words LORD I found you, I finally found you!
I don’t feel like i’m in the world, well I didn’t feel like it before but now I REALLY don’t feel like it. The difference is that I have fully come into acceptance that I can’t make it without Jesus. The peace that comes with knowing my sins have been paid for is a peace like no other. So yes, I may be in this world, but i’m definitely not of it (anymore). I pray that you all keep going, whoever this message is for please keep going. It’s a long, hard walk, but at the same time they’re the most worthy, fulfilling steps you could ever take. REPENT…DAILY. Die to your flesh and it’s desires…DAILY. Seek him with ALL your heart (not some of it, not 3/4ths) and ALL your spirit. This means putting him FIRST. Continue to get into his presence, continue to read the word (this is key). You must read the bible every single day, stop making excuses for him. I’ve dedicated 2 hours to Christ everyday (bible, prayer, and/or just talking), I know this seems like a lot at first, and i’m not saying you have to do 2 hours, but only when you genuinely start putting time in is when he really starts to work on you. The more I read the word, the more he speaks to me, the more I recognize his voice, the more powerful my prayers feel. Lastly, try to walk in the spirit at all times. With the world increasingly diminishing each day it’s important that we walk in the spirit and do not get attached to the emotions of our surroundings. I pray that each and everyone of you can continue on the narrow path, as we know that broad is the way to destruction.

Glory to the LORD!
