Eyes wide shut

Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  1 Peter 1:8

Hello readers. I have testimony to share with you all. And it has to do with spiritual blindness and how one can quickly change and to put oneself into invisible bondage.

Recently I have had issues with things at my workplace. And let me tell you something about it, its kind of a place when you work the best of your abilities, and it is never good enough. But the scripture says ” Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters” Colossians 3:23 So I had problems of such. Because I started to read my Bible less than usual and I was praying less than usual. And I have started to search for other pleasing stuff in life and starting to buy earthly possesions like, cellphones , watches etc. Things that make person happy in the moment. So days goes by and as I mentioned before my Bible readings and study was less than usual, and even I was having hard time to visit home groups and going to the Church. And like that I was days ahead, and I was more stressful and grumpy, I was very negative in everything I did. Until one day I come home to mu wife, and she notice the change in me ( stress, despair, negativity, Anxiety, etc ) then I sit with her and we spoke for like 2h, and we prayed, and then she went to work. In the meantime I went to do my quiet time, and I read out loud, book of Ephesians and book of Galatians ( out loud ). I knelt before the Lord and open my heart about the issues and blindness that is griping me. I submitted myself to the Lord and ask forgiveness. He ( Jesus Christ ) restored my soul in matter of minutes. After the prayer and Reading of the word I felt like I was stronger then ever my spiritual strength went from 0-1000 and the joy, the unspeakable joy I have felt was indescribable. When my wife returned she could see on my face the change that had happened, and I was changed completely. I have told her what had happened and what I did, and how I felt after the prayer. After this “event” I have never shared more Christ to people around me than in past 3 years since I was Newborn. GoD is putting on my path people to share the gospel good news to all nations I have encounter , on my work place, caffe shops, my building where I live, non christians and christians alike, orthodox and muslims, catolics and atheists. I have spoken to all of them. And by the Grace of God, he will touch their harts and mind, so they can see the Glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

After that day, I was reminded about Psalm 23 How God, the father is my shepherd and that I should have in Him all that I need, He restore my soul that time and he will do that every time when I come to him because he love us, He lead me into the path of righteousness for His name’s sake . I was In my darkest valley, with him I fear no evil for HE is with me. His rod and His staff they comfort me.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

We sometimes forget that the Lord is my shepherd, amazing spiritual relationship. The secret of the of the satisfied life “I shall not want”, the secret of the safe life “he restoreth my soul”, he brings back my soul , the secret of the of the spiritual life “he leadeth me into the paths of righteousness” , the secret of secured life “for his names sake” . He never let us down.

Let me finish with verse from 1 Peter 5:8-11 Be sober, be vigilant because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.  But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.  To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever.

Amen.
