When my child was born possibly? He just looked like he knew some things we didn't. That look in those eyes like he came from somewhere.

Since you asked i'll answer. It had to be when i got lucky (they did too) last november and slept with and had sex two women at once. No I am not a bible thumper, nor do i even believe in God, but just in case I went ahead and thanked the man upstairs. So it was November 16th 2013 when I gave thanks.

Please take this as constructive criticism, but I don't think those two phrases ever work when they're said in response to a statement like the poster made. It comes off as needing to have a comeback when it would have been better off if you'd said nothing. Go ahead and pray for them, but don't throw it back in their face like you have to have the last word. God will have the last word. Hope you'll be open to what I said and not be offended.

God especially became noticeable in my life the night I accepted Him into my heart. I first had faith enough to ask, but then--I knew--I knew that God was real. Faith and belief turns into knowing for a certainty that there is a God of love, who loves us, even when we are yet in our sins. We have much--even more than we realize---to thank Him for.
Praise Him forever!

Yes, He did, Room, and He didn't just stop there! God had the power to raise Him from death, and He is the firstfruits of the Resurrection. I like that phrase in one verse that says, "To be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord." Philippians 4:13 also says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." He also said, "Where I am, there ye may be also." God has prepared a place for those who love Him and who love Jesus. He will not leave us. He will not forsake us. If He is for us, who can be against us? He is so good!
amen

If you tell people that their faith and believing will always turn into a knowing for a certainty about God, I think you are doing a disservice. There will be many people who will say, "That Christian says I have to be 100% certain about God and I don't think I could ever be that sure, with no questions or doubts, so what's the use to try." Many people have much more of a questioning mind that others. I am a devoted Christian. Have been saved for almost 40 years. But, especially as I have gotten older, I have developed questions about things related to Jesus. I still have perservered and tried to run the good race. I WANT to believe in Jesus and so I live for Him. But, can I say I am 100 percent certain. No. But, I have faith that the Bible is true and so I live my life for Him. I often feel an understanding for doubting Thomas. All I'm saying is that we should not make people who aren't Christians feel like they must have the exact same experience and thoughts as we do to be children of Christ. Yes, there are things you must do and believe to be a Christian, but we are all different to some degree or another.

I just know that nothing could be more important to me that the fact that Jesus does for me and my sins. Thank you Jesus!!!

I appreciate your response, CD. I see some of your points, like sometimes, we are going to have doubts. I think that's when we have to stir up the faith that's in us--because the devil definitely wants us to doubt. Will we stay in doubt--or will we come out? "Blessed are those who have not seen (with their natural eyes) but yet they believe.
Job went through the most horrible situations a man can go through, and his wife told him to curse God and die. I like what he said at one point in his conversations: "I know that my Redeemer liveth." He knew God lives.
Remember this song?
"Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind, but now I see.
Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved. How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed.
Through many dangers, toils, and snares, I have already come. Twas grace that brought me safe thus far, and grace will lead me home.
When we've been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun, we've no less days, to sing God's praise, than when we first begun/"
What I would say to someone who has some doubts is to not give up. Without faith it is impossible to please God. This is in the Bible. God loves faith. As for me, God has blessed me with some experiences that has assured me that He is real, and that He is Who He said He Is. I understand that not everyone will have the same experiences. Still, we have one faith, one Lord, one baptism.
I am reminded that when times are hard, "weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning," and that we are to "wait upon the Lord." I go through a lot of hard times too, CD, but I'm sure God is there. Some of my questions have been more to the point of me not being all of what I am supposed to be, rather than thinking God may not be real. The devil wants us to feel this way, too. So, I just have to depend on Him with this, because He said His grace is sufficient for all. And believe me, without His grace, I could do nothing on my own. My own righteousness would be as filthy rags in His sight. I have to believe Him and trust Him, too, not for the thought He isn't there, but for the thought that I may sometimes comes up short.
I have to ask for forgiveness, and renew my mind in Him. "Be ye transformed by the renewing of your minds." That's what I often must do. Am I good enough? No! But Jesus, who forgives me, is!
CD, when you are down, praise the Lord--even when it seems hard to get started. "God inhabits the praises of His people." ....

A continuance to CD.........

I remember Ephesians 6, which says, "Stand, and having done all, to stand." Yet, the devil's trying to push us over as we stand. But we are armed. When we lack, God can provide.
I do for a fact know that God saved my soul when I was a girl. I remember the time, the place, the song being sung, the preacher, those who baptized me, the moment, the things I felt and how I had changed. I remember it all! When the devil tells me God is not real and I was not saved, I can call him a liar. I know for a fact God saved my soul, and He came into my heart. The world can't take it from me. I'm no different than any other Christian in this. "Whom the Son sets free is free indeed."
Have you ever heard that song, maybe called, "The Blood Will Never Lose It's Power?" He calms our doubts and He soothes our fears! The blood Jesus shed for us will never lose it's power. I pray that God will strengthen you and give you great peace and joy. Keep on keeping on, CD, and don't let the devil steal what's yours. You will be rewarded for it.
I like a Psalm that says, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth." The first 3 verses of Psalm 18 starts out, "I will love Thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Deliverer; my God, my Strength, in Whom I will trust; my Buckler, and the Horn of my Salvation, and my High Tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; so shall I be saved from mine enemies."
Our enemies can be different things.
Again, thank you for your response.
Sometimes, CD, my problems can come through my own family, and give me rough and trying times. Do I wanna give up and turn back? I don't! I and we have too much to gain to lose. God be with you and the readers of this thread, and the responders. May God help us in all things--we need Him. Nice day to you, CD. I'm looking forward to hearing something from you--even if it's just a little note. I know people can get busy, sometimes. We can know in whom we have believed, and have a relationship with Him. We fail, and we make mistakes, but I'm so thankful He does not.
With God all things are possible. We can speak to doubt and to unbelief, and tell them to go in Jesus' name. "I can do all things who strengthens me." God will respond to us when we keep on keeping on.
I love you, CD. Take care, and God be with you and with yours. God wants us to encourage one another.

Tell you what! I had a really hard time getting my last post to "post comment." The devil didn't want it to work out, but it did. I hope we all who love the Lord can all be a help to one another.
thank you
