Bobbie J Davis Christian Testimony:
God led me to this website, and I am so thankful that He did.
I was brought up in church and attended church and Sunday School almost every Sunday. If my siblings and I didn’t attend church, we were in Sunday School. During this time, I believed in God but didn’t know the difference between God and Jesus.
As a young child, I would think, “I don’t want to go to hell when I die.” Things did become clear to me because my mom witnessed to me. We had a big family Bible that one of my brothers had given to my mother and she would read it all the time. She would explain things to me, so I did begin to understand the difference between God and Jesus as I grew older.
When I was about 12 years old, we had revival at my church, so my brother, sister and I sat on the “mourning” bench (a bench for repentant sinners, placed at the front of the church in a revival meeting). I think this bench should have been called a “happy” bench because you should be happy that you are going to accept Jesus as your Savior.
I stood up to accept Jesus when I was sitting on this mourning bench, but I didn’t understand it all. After the mourning bench experience, we were baptized in a creek because the church didn’t have a baptismal pool.
Years later, after I fully understood what I had to do to get “saved,” I did just that--repented, asked God to forgive me of my sins and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Since I have become a “born again Christian,” I have experienced the faithfulness of God.
I’m not saying that it has always been a bed of roses, there were thorns and thistles as we know all roses have, but God has brought me to them all. God is teaching me how to trust in Him and give Him all my problems and cares.
I’m being transformed by the “renewing of my mind,” (Rom 12:2). This is a process and will not happen overnight. I have committed scriptures on trust to memory and keep them before me as much as possible.
My mother used to tell me to “baby trust Him anyway,” and I’m doing just that. There is a song with the lyrics, “through it all, through it all, I learned to trust in Jesus, I learned to trust in God.
How can I trust Thee? Let me count the ways: Trust in the Lord Forever for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength (Is 26:4). No matter what or how you feel, trust in the Lord always.
You are never going to feel the same, one day you feel like a million dollars, the next day you feel like 2 cents; one minute you feel like a queen, the next minute you feel like a pauper. Some days you feel like a nut, some days you don’t.
Jesus Christ, you can and should trust every day, even if you don’t feel like it. Keep trusting in the Lord and not in your feelings. Our feelings change but God doesn't change, He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8).
Trust, what does it mean? Webster dictionary defines trust as assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something; one in which confidence is placed; to be confident; to rely on the truthfulness or accuracy of.
We must have confidence in the character, ability, strength truth and accuracy of Jesus. There are many scriptures on trusting in Jesus.
