I was a day care provider & there was a child in my care named Jason-that God used to continue my journey with God. Jason was only 4 years old-but he knew how to pray. Jason started praying for me & asked his dad to pray too.
I can still remember the phone ringing & Jason saying, "Kim will you come to church with me?" Of course I agreed to go. Jason asked me to church every Wednesday & Sunday.
One day Jason asked me, "Have you been baptized?" I explained to him I was baptized as a baby. Jason told his dad & his dad made arrangements to study with me. For the next 4 weeks Greg (Jason's dad) rode his motorcycle over to my parent's house to have a Bible study with me. After several scriptures were read on babtism; I told Greg I wanted to be baptized. Mathew 28:19 "Therefore go & make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, son, & of the holy spirit". (NIV)
I was to be baptized in a small pond in Claremont, IL. As I went down into the water-I can still remember the beautiful singing of the people as they sang:"I will follow Jesus - No turning back".Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone
To have a deep soul relationship with another
To be loved thoroughly and exclusively
But, God, to a Christian says: No, not until you are satisfied, filled and content with being loved by Me alone with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me alone discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found will you be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.
You will never be united with one another until you are united with Me. Exclusively for anyone or anything else Exclusively for any other desires or longings I want you to stop wishing and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing
One that you cannot imagine I want you to have the best. Please allow Me to bring it to you.
You must keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am, keep learning the things that I want to tell you. You just wait, wait. That’s all.
Don’t be anxious.
Don’t look around at the things that others have gotten or that I have given them
Don’t look at the things you think you want
You just keep looking off and away to Me, or you’ll miss what I want to show you , and when you are ready I will surprise you with a love more beautiful than you could dream of. You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready, You will never be able to experience the great love that is waiting for you (I am working even at this very moment to have both of you ready at the same time)
Until you are both satisfied with Me and the life I’ve prepared for you, you won’t be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me, and this is the perfect love.
And dear one, I want you to have the most wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me and enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, and perfection and love that I offer you with Myself.
Know that I love you utterly
I am God ………
Believe it and be satisfied.
As I came up out of the water-I knew my sins were forgiven & buried-to be held against me no more. I was a complete new creature in Christ. I don't know how many people were saved by Jason's prayers & willingness to share Jesus with others. We as adults need to hiumble ourselves & become like a child. Pray for everyone & use every opportunity to share the message of the gospel.
