Finally I began to get ahold of myself and realized everything was in God’s hands and if He didn’t want me to go to Bible School it was ok with me, He knew what was best for me and I did not have to worry. He would not let anything happen to me. It was in His hands. I got peace again and continued with my day’s plans.
That afternoon I decided to call the same number again, just for grins. The phone rang and the Institute operator said, “Good afternoon, River Bible Institute”. I couldn’t believe it. I had made contact just as it should have happened. I told the lady my name and asked if I had received the scholarship. She said, “Let me check”. She came back on and said congratulations; you have received your scholarship. Then I began to tell her what had happened previously that morning and as I was speaking to her I realized that satin was fighting me to keep me from coming to this school. I told the lady, ma’am, God is going to be doing great work in me. I now know because if it were not so, Satan would not be fighting me so hard to keep me from coming there. He is afraid. Halleluiah!
As I meditated later on what had happened, I understood that this whole incident was to confirm to me by the Spirit that I was being sent to River Bible Institute by the Spirit. If this had not happened I would have come to the school not really knowing by the Spirit I was in Gods will. Because although initially I witnessed that what was going on at this Great Awakening was a good thing and I agreed with what I was seeing. I still didn’t hear God say go. Without this experience, later on I probably would have questioned whether or not this was just a good idea.
This is my first testimony of River Bible Institute. Since then God has revealed Himself in so many ways to me and we are experiencing Gods pouring out of His Holy Spirit on us here at the River. May God Bless you all……. James M.
