Always Remember, Never Forget

When you take that first step and receive Christ, the Spirit of God will bear witness to your Spirit that you have been saved.

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Romans 8:16

There was a time, either at the very moment of your conversion, or shortly thereafter, where the Spirit of God bore witness to you, confirmed in your heart, that what had happened to you, in you, and for you was indeed a real occurrence.

Never forget that moment. Always remember that you simply knew that you knew. There will be times in your walk with God when that moment and the memory of it will bring you through doubt, temptation or pain. The memory of that defining moment in your earthly life, at times, will bring you to your knees in repentance, in hope, in thanksgiving or in worship.

Not only was it the most important moment in your life, but it will be equally as important many times over.

Even with good friends around you, a loving church home, an annointed pastor, biblical counseling and powerful prayer, that moment will always be the one single moment you can look back on and say with assurance:

"God did it. He is real. I am His. I am a child of God."

You are so right! That assurance truly is needed. Sometimes, for me personally, dealing with issues as a teen you loose focus on what you believe. Even church starts to seems "blah". Then out comes this: "oh yeah! God is real!" and it does exactly what you said!
