My Spirit Hath Rejoiced in God My Saviour

“And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord.

And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” Luke 1;46,47

24 years ago today I got saved...February 11, 1987. It was a Wednesday night. Before the service, I was sitting at the dining room table coloring. I remember very clearly I started singing, “I have decided to follow Jesus….” And it was as if the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart, “You need to get saved.” Before I went to church, I thought, “I want to get saved today.” Dad preached, and at the invitation time, when he asked if anyone would like to be saved, I raised my hand. Mom took me to her bedroom after church, read verses from the Bible to me, and I knelt down by her bed and asked Jesus to save me.

What a blessing it is to be saved; what peace is mine, knowing that there is now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus! My spirit is rejoicing in the blessings of being saved, and in the privilege of being able to serve my Saviour!

Please pray for me this evening (at 7:00), as I will be speaking to a group of teen girls from another Baptist church in town. I have been told that there will be unsaved girls there. Please pray that someone would be saved tonight!

“For HE that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is HIS name.”

Luke 1:49
