A Most Memorable Blessing

It was 1973 or early 1974. I was living in Argyle, Texas led there by the Spirit of the Lord to be tempted by the devil as Jesus was in Matthew 4 and Luke 4. I had not one friend. My wife was resisting everything I did. I have personally talked to Kenneth Hagin. I knew Derek Prince personally and was acquainted with Bob Mumford, Don Basham, and Charles Simpson. I had talked with each of them personally. All of these ministries knew who I was. I did not have one family member that thought I knew what I was doing. I was one despite veterinarian with much success under my belt. I was a well known equine practitioner in North Texas but God was dealing with my life.

I wondered if God even knew my name or if he knew where I was at. I was raised in church; John Wesley Methodist Holiness. I was taught you must be saved or born again, and keep the Ten Commandments. I had sold and forsaken my veterinary hospital and practice; I had sold my two farms, sold all of my cattle and most of my broodmares and show horses. I also had sold all of my investments. I did all of this to follow Jesus. But nothing was working for me (which was very unusual for me).

And then God started speaking to me Exodus 34: 6,7. I read these verses of scripture over and over and over for days. My eyes were fixed on them and I could not get away from reading or thinking about them. Jehovah was talking to me. I felt as though God was talking to me as He did Moses with these scripture. And finally I got the message; this is the way Jehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is, as he revealed these scriptures to me. I wept and wept with unbelief and fear. Finally I realized God was not like they told me as I was raised. I was overpowered with his presence receiving these words.

Exodus 34:

6 And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,

7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

From that day I have never forgotten who Jehovah and his son, Jesus Christ are. And they are NOT ten commandment Gods to the righteous.

In the 1980’s I told my son-in-law Terry Mai, who is now in heaven, there is a song here if you will write it. From our conversation he wrote this song. What a blessing Terry Mai was to my ministry and now with him in heaven with his songs still blessing me and many others.

I would like to share this song with you, ministered by the Water of Life Sweet 16.

God bless,
Doyle Davidson
Servant and apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ
