Today was a very special day. The Lord was on my heart and I felt this great need to share His good news. My heart was so full that I felt like it would’ve exploded if I didn’t tell anyone about Him. So after work, I drove over to my step mother’s home to pick up my daughter. After arriving, I felt the continued urge to talk about Jesus. So I opened my mouth and expressed my love for Him. That it is so important to believe in Him and accept Him in our hearts. That we shouldn’t just say the words, “we believe” but seek to have Him in our hearts always. That to live for Christ is how our belief will be formed. It was a marvelous experience. The Holy Spirit was so strong as we both shared our love for Jesus. At home, an internet sales person knocked on the door. When asked what I do with my internet I joyfully told her that I use it for my Christian website. That each day I write messages to bring people closer to Jesus. As I said this to her, I could see her interest was piqued. She told me that her friends had talked with her about Jesus but she didn’t believe. She did say, however, that she was wanted to see my site. So I invited her in, along with her colleague, that was nearby. I gave them both devotional card and showed them around the website. I explained how they can discover the truths of God from scripture. That people can pick a topic of interest, to help strengthen their beliefs in God. At the end of our discussion, I invited her to come to Jesus and believe. She then said, “I just need to open my heart”. I said, “that is what God is waiting for”. As she left, I know a seed was planted.
My heart is joyful for this opportunity to share the love of Jesus with my step mother and these two salesmen. Just to open my mouth and speak about the Lord and His gospel was amazing. The feelings I got when talking about our Lord God cannot be explained. It was as if God was with me every minute of the way. Every time I spoke I could feel His love all around me. That it wasn’t my words but His. I was in the presence of God. I know that these opportunities are what God has for each of us. Those that are willing to live for Him will carry a zeal for Him in their hearts. When we are for Him, He will give us boldness to share His gospel truths. He will give us words to speak. God promises, “open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Testify of Him and you will do great and marvelous things in His Name. Thank You Lord for using me this day to do Your will. I pray that my step mother will continually grow in her love for You. I pray that both salesmen that came to my door may seek to know You. That their hearts may be softened to accept You in their lives. It was marvelous to share the good news this day. It brings me great joy to testify of You. When I speak of You, Lord, it is ” a joyful noise”. My praises go out to Your Name. I lift You up high. Hosanna, for You are holy. You are merciful and just. Thank You for restoring my life from death to life. I was dead and You breathed new life into my soul. I was blind but I now see. For this I honor You. I will go wherever You want me to go. I will say what You want me to say. You are my God and I serve You. I love You.
Psalm 81:1,8,10 (KJV)
1 Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
10 I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
