There is no greater satisfaction in life than being a child of the King. There’s no amount of money, jewelry, cars, clothes, fame, or even family that can compare to the love of God. I’ve walked with God long enough to know He’s real, He’s good, and He’s always on time.
I used to wonder when I would ever get a better job. It seemed as if my peers had no problems getting nice jobs with even nicer salaries yet somehow I jumped from one low-paying, stressful job to the next. I was rejected from so many jobs I wondered why I even bothered continuing my job search. As hard as it was to keep looking for different jobs I never gave up and in time I learned that God hadn’t given up on me either. Several years went by and finally God placed me at a job with low stress that I enjoy. If I hadn’t did all of the other less desirable jobs I wouldn’t have appreciated the one I have now. I learned that my job situation wasn’t the only lesson I was going to learn in God’s timing.
I’ve been in church all my life but I’ve struggled with sexual immorality for over 20 years. I didn’t think I would ever get delivered. But the more I walked with God, the more I read His Word, the more I believed Psalm 34:17 “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.” Christ, whose spirit lives in me is righteous and even though I cannot overcome my temptations in my own strength Christ can. I learned that I have t0 kill sexual sin everyday and to guard who I’m around, what I watch, and what I listen to. I’m so grateful that God is faithful and forgiving who “will never leave me or forsake me. ” (Deuteronomy 31:6) My deliverance out of sexual immorality took a very long time but better late (being delivered) than not being delivered at all. Better late to come to salvation, than not be saved at all.
