I woke up early this morning, reminiscing about the physical or (spiritual) conditions I went through about two years ago. So now I am officially saying thank you Jesus for everything. Believe it or not, I forgot to thank Jesus for getting me out of that wheelchair, which I was confined to, and a lot of other stuff he did for me.
I was confined to a wheelchair and in constant pain for about four months, both of my knees need to be replaced, so, I thought that was the reason I was confined to that wheelchair, and in so much pain, but now I know what happened.
Back then I really did not know much about Jesus, but he must have known something about me. I was in so much pain Satan tried to get me to curse Jesus, he would tell me almost every night Jesus is not going to help relieve my pain, so I might as well curse him and get it over with. I think I ask Jesus a couple of times to relieve the pain, but he did not.
I was thinking to myself if I cursed Jesus that will not stop the pain, so why curse him. Keep in mind since I did not know anything about Jesus, it should have been easy for me to curse him. Later on, I realized Jesus must have had his hands on me all that time.
Twenty months ago, I got out of that wheelchair and started walking, and I still have not had the knee surgery, mostly because of the COVID-19 precautions. I don’t know why I did not immediately thank Jesus for the second I got up and started walking.
Back then I really did not know Jesus and I was afraid to ask him for help because I thought he would not help, you, see I was an awful sinner. When I got out of that wheelchair and started walking again, I thought it was luck or something I did.
This morning it was like Jesus saying to me “Remember when you were confined to that wheelchair”. It all came back to me real clear in every detail. I remembered how difficult and painful it was to dress myself, and difficult and painful to use the bathroom.
I was in need of a good physical cleaning, but what I did not know I was desperately in need of a good spiritually cleaning. I did not take this incident as a warning from Jesus I thought it was just some more of the unknown problems that I went through.
If and when you hear Jesus’ voice calling you, go to him immediately with an open heart and mind. Confess your sins to him and ask him to forgive all of your sins. If you are sincere when you ask, he will forgive all of your sins.
No one else on earth can commit sins as worst as the sins I committed, so, if Jesus can forgive my sins as bad as they were, and he did forgive my sins, he surely will forgive your sins. It is good news to know no matter how bad we mess things up, Jesus will forgive and help us.
I know there are not any more people on earth like me, because I am the worst. No one on earth can be any worst sinner than me, no matter how hard they may try. I had a hard time acknowledging that fact, I just did not want to be the worst sinner on earth.
Jesus told me to consider myself lower than anyone else on earth, now I understand why that is true. I have learned I cannot condemn anyone on earth no matter what they do or what sins they commit. I am like the people in the bible who wanted to stone the woman to death for her sins. I cannot condemn anyone or anything.
I would encourage everyone to take a good look at the way you are living your life, make sure it aligns up with Jesus’s teachings. Please do not go as far as I did, I regret that every day.
