Lord, I often wonder many people are actually saved. People predict that it is in the billions of people that are currently in paradise awaiting to go through the gates of heaven. However, my soul fears that far less people are actually saved than predicted. That because of the lusts of the flesh, people live in darkness while calling themselves Christians. This is so true and I have seen this dozens and dozens of times in my life. Lord, I not only see a very dark generation of people that say they believe but live an entirely different life. People who appear very righteous at church, but outside those walls, they are no different than wicked people in the world. Secret sins rule their lives while calling upon Your Name in all their confessions is hard to find. But this does not have to happen in the long run. I believe that You will do a work in many more people’s lives and save the uttermost. Surely, there are millions of people in heaven from over the centuries, but this is because the Holy Spirit has set so many rivals in people’s lives. But where are these revivals today, God? Wake people up from their sleep into knowing You as their Lord and Savior. I believe in You. I trust in You, God. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Galatians 5:17 (KJV)
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
You are not in the beloved, which means God’s people, if you are living your own life instead of following Jesus.
