AUGUST 21: THE EXACT MOMENT

THE EXACT MOMENT
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Carrie is an outgoing and enjoyable gal,
Full of life, vibrancy, and vitality.
She desires an open conversation about God and has invited me as a guest into her thoughts,
Many of which I find curiously provoking.
She raises interesting questions and then responds with interesting answers.
I sense that my presence is desired but the processing of thought barely needs help.
She is clearly encumbered and burdened by an underlying uncertainty about her salvation.
The exact, precise moment of her salvation can't be satisfactorily pinpointed.
She wonders whether I think she might possibly be unsaved.
Hmmm ...
------
In relation to salvation,
No man knows the soul or the state of another.
But I believe that to question one's "moment" of salvation clarifies the need to take care of the matter at once with God.
If you are wondering about the state of your soul, and the time of your salvation, then wonder no longer.
Now is your moment to take care of it.
 Cry out to God,
Confess your sin,
 Express your need of Him this moment.
Be sure of it.
Settle the matter once and for all upon your knees, that the greater part of your spiritual life is absorbed in communion with Him and not in question of Him.
Remain alone with Him until the matter is entirely taken care of.
Be done with the wondering and wandering of thought,
And let it be answered of a clarity within.
Enjoy the satisfying presence of peace,
And the certainty of God.
There are no substitutes.

'For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God."
1 Corinthians 2:11
