Life is all about the decisions we make.
When I was 20 years old I made a life changing decision to give up a summer job as a lifeguard, and traveled to Ohio against my parent’s wishes to take a Bible class. From that class I learned God’s Word and chose to confess Jesus as Lord and believe God raised Him from the dead.
What made the difference and confirmed my new birth experience was speaking in tongues. This incredible manifestation cemented in my heart that I was a son of God, filled with the gift of holy spirit.
What made the difference for the Apostle Peter from being behind closed doors for fear and denying the Lord Jesus Christ several times during His trials leading up to His crucifixion? Being filled with the gift of holy spirit and speaking in tongues on the Day of Pentecost.
We all have made decisions in our lives that have drastically affected our lives. What makes the difference for us now is the decision to become sons of God with power.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7.
God encourages us since “we live in the spirit, let us also walk in the spirit” (Galatians 5:25).
Utilizing the spirit of Christ within by speaking in tongues much and using the other manifestations will make a spectacular difference in our lives.
Galatians 6:8:
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
