Hi, I am a newbie here and I thank you for these informative forums. May the Lord bless each of you. I hope my speech here will be wise! Forgive me ahead of time if it's not!
Got saved a few years ago, maybe I will share my testimony sometime:). Haha, basically I was barking too long up the wrong tree and was stopped in my tracks by the Lord! The first thing I felt was the fear of the Lord and realized I was doing things all the wrong way-and that my sin was against Someone who is of all honor and power. And boy was that scary to realize I sinned against the Divine and Holy Master of this world. He woke up my eyes big time. I think of this verse, "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom". Psa 111:10. I realized who He is and who I was- I was a sinner needing God's mercy and forgiveness. He, well He's the Almighty Creator who I sinned against-and that woke me up. Realizing my place and His. I needed to bow down to the Almighty God and cry out that He would forgive me.
I needed to to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
