There is a story behind my being in this radio ministry. I share it with you for two reasons. One is that you will not be inclined to see me as special in any way and that our God will get all the glory. The second is that you might be encouraged to believe that God is never done with you or any of His children who are willing to bow before Him in repentance and a new commitment. He uses broken things.
When I was almost eighty years old, I had a new spiritual encounter with the Lord. On an early morning in February as I prayed, I knew, without a doubt, that God was speaking to me. The unmistakable message was one of conviction and of challenge.
The Lord challenged me to deliver on the promises I had made and the consecration I professed. In that encounter, He assured me He was willing to do in me what He had promised the backslidden Children of Israel in Joel 2:25. Jehovah told backslidden Israel that: “I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, My great army which I sent among you.”
When I was 25 years old I made a sincere commitment to the Lord that I would leave all earthly pursuits and give myself to the ministry of the Gospel. I broke that promise. In addition, I failed God in ways that brought shame to His Holy Name. I was uneasily content to ride it out, believing that it was all too late for any recovery, but God. Then came that memorable morning in February, when on my knees, broken before God, He spoke deeply into my soul, challenging me to repent and return. I struggled and fought in my spirit until I had no fight left in me. I said, Yes Lord.
I took God at His word and this is what He is doing. I invite you to pray that He will be glorified!
