THEY THAT BE WHOLE NEED NOT A PHYSICIAN...BUT THEY THAT ARE SICK! (Matthew 9:13)
Only those who come from a pit really know the depths of that pit. God has brought me from a horrible pit. I do not boast in my sin, for He has brought me out of the darkness and into His marvelous light. Nor do I shun the testimony of my past life of sin, for He has brought me out of the darkness and into His marvelous light.
"Come see a man that told me everything I ever did." (John 4:29) I was a complete drunk for years. I partied to live and lived to party. I literally drank every day of my life. I woke up with two cups of coffee and the rest of my day was spent with a drink in my hand until I finally slumbered off to sleep. I could feel my body beginning to shut down from so much abuse. But I remembered a scripture I heard, and I would through the day say in my heart, "I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord." Oh, how I love Him!
I was a gambler. I gambled at every chance I got. I played the machines. I played the numbers. I played the games. Sometimes I won, but most times I lost. The money was not the goal in the win, but it was the primary goal to continue gambling. You never win big enough or spend big enough. Oh, how I love Him!
I was a mistress for most of my life - a harlot. I merchandised and sold myself. I lived a lie and detached myself as if it wasn't me. You become lost in every depth and sense of the word because you have sold your soul - your identity. "Whither shall I go from thy Spirit or whither shall I flee from Thy presence? If I ascend up into the heavens, Thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, Thou art there." (Psalms 137:9) Oh, how I love Him!
I was a murderer. I had an abortion at the age of twenty-five. This pit is unsearchable. "I, even, I am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake and will not remember thy sins." (Isaiah 43:25) Though the pit goes deeper, He is deeper still. Oh, how I love Him!
Time would not permit to tell all the depths of my pit. The gospel is not just theory but reality, and He has made the gospel a reality in my life. I don't just believe He can deliver. I know He can. I don't just believe there is a healing balm in Gilead, I know there is. I don't just believe He can set free and free indeed, I know He can. We may believe - going, in but we KNOW - coming out. "Come see a man that told me everything I ever did...Oh, how I love Him!
...she knelt behind Him weeping and did wash His feet with her tears. She dried them with her hair and anointed them with her ointment. Jesus said to her, woman thy sins which are many are forgiven. (Luke 7:48) He left the ninety and nine and came after this woman. The ministry of ONE...RESTORING LIVES ONE AT A TIME!!
