October 21, 2019 testimony

Standard

Good morning, DearHeart.

This weekend my kids either moved or helped each other move into new homes. It was crazy. And, it is a new beginning in the stories of their lives.

Growing up in the church, I remember there being a portion of the service dedicated to “testimonies” – when people were given opportunity to share stories about how God was at work in their life.

Testimonies – our stories – they matter.

“And they have defeated him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony.” (Revelation 12:11, NLT)

Our testimonies, our stories, become the means by which we overcome and defeat the enemy of our souls. Satan would love for nothing better than to destroy or mar our testimonies.

He works at trying to make our testimonies ineffective because He knows they wield a powerful effect when combined with God’s Word. Our stories can encourage others, infusing them with hope, as they hear of God’s work in our lives.

May our stories tell not of our own achievements but of God’s power at work in, and through, our situations.

“Great faith is the product of great fights. Great testimonies are the results of great tests. Great triumphs can only come out of great trials.” (Smith Wigglesworth)

When we share our stories, people unite with each other and with our Maker. You know that tingling feeling you get when you hear a story that resonates within? Your story does the same to others. Start where you are and share your heart and watch Love settle into the cracked places to seal bridges to unity.

“I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.”

John 17:23 NLT

Wake up.

Share your story.

Go.
