Personal testimony of Paul Halbeck
|Home / teachings / Purpose / testimony|
I have had slow Speech and poor coordination since six months of age and it has impacted every facet of my life. I've always known that God was my Creator, however, at that time my heart was rather hardened and I was not allowing Him to move in my life.
In 1993, I made a commitment and formally dedicated my life to Jesus Christ. Partly out of frustration, since my ways were no longer satisfying me anymore, and I was beginning to find purpose in my life, through living for Jesus Christ. With the understanding that; God has begun a good work in me and He will be faithful to complete it, Philippians 1:6 and that John 3:3 is true, One must truly be born again.
I am now allowing the Lord to work in my life, and have since experienced and continue to experience an inner peace, strength, and contentment. And now looking back, it seems unrealistic to even imagine that the LORD was not always with me, every step of the way.
It has taken many years, much study and perseverance but I now realize that there is both physical and emotional healing in the Gospel, for Jesus paid for it all on the cross. We simply need to learn how to take what is rightfully ours. As son's and daughter's of Christ we are heirs of God through Christ, Galatians 4:7. And if an heir, we then have a full inheritance Colossians 1:12. I now expect God's Word to deliver on its many promises, for I have realized, "Let God be true, and every man a liar," Romans 3:4 and that we are blessed with every blessing in Christ, Ephesians 1:3.
