KNOWING GOD'S WAYS


"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither

are your ways my ways, says the Lord."

(iSAIAH 55:8-9 (Amplified Bible)


God does things His way. It is foolish to think

that we can do things our way and expect

Him to honor our ways.


This standard applies to Salvation.

I have met people who when seeking Salvation

have went forward in response to an altar

call and assumed that was all that was needed.


I have done the same thing. I have responded to

altar calls throughout my life from childhood to

adulthood. I have responded at retreats and at my

local church. I thought that was all I needed to do

to receive God's salvation, but I was wrong.


I didn't actually get saved until I was 31 years of age.

So what went wrong? I didn't do it God's way.

I have met others who have surrendered to altar calls but

skip water baptism and other sacraments and as a result

they never grow in their spiritual life. I've seen that first

hand. I have also seen the results when they co-operate

with God's ways.


One day, I was at my design shop which was located

next to a Christian Bookstore. Traffic was slow so I

went next door to hunt for a book to read. I chose

a book by Billy Graham. In that book, I came across

Romans 10: 9-10 which is God's way to salvation.

As I read that scripture, I realized that I had sought

Salvation according to my own ways and not what

God has said about being saved.


So I followed the Roman Road. It worked. Suddenly,

God was before me. It was like an explosion! God

was in front of me in Spirit and I was stunned by

the reality Jesus was truly real and alive.


Real salvation comes when we encounter Jesus!

Without that encounter, we are subject to doubt

and unbelief.


God has ways of His own that we must follow if

we want to serve Him.


His protocols are salvation, water baptism, baptism

in the Holy Spirit, Christian fellowship and powerful

service and more.


"If you acknowledge and confess with your lips that

Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe that God

Raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For

with the heart a person believes and so is justified

(declared righteous) and with the mouth he

confesses and confirms {his} salvation."

(Romans 10:9-10 - Amplified Bible)


Do it God's way and you will not be disappointed!
