1 121913 God's finger print

Praise the Lord for another day of teaching and learning about the meaning of our way of life. The message I’m sharing with you today is one that I first prepared in 2005 and I went back to find it because I needed it at this point in time. May it bless someone as much as it blesses me.

Today’s Prayer

Father, So many people are suffering right now. Some are suffering because of their sins, others because of heartache, others because of illness and others from circumstances beyond their control. I pray for them all right now. I ask that You would provide a way and reach out to pull them to safety, repentance, happiness, or whatever their need may be. Show them, Your love and open their eyes that they may see Your strong arm of salvation. Comfort them so they may realize that “weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). In the name of Jesus my Savior I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

The fingerprint of God

When the Lord finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, He gave him the two tablets of the Testimony, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of GOD.Exodus 31:18

Throughout the Bible, the word testimony is used in many ways. Testimony comes from the Hebrew word eduwth, which means “witness.” The Ark of the Covenant contained the Ten Commandments, written and inscribed personally by God and given to Moses on Mount Sinai. These became known as the testimony. The ark was a divinely inspired structure that was to be used as a witness to the people of Israel and the whole world of God’s power and majesty. These divinely created tablets were a witness of God’s activity on earth with man.

Throughout the Bible, God looked to create testimonies with His people. At the Red Sea, He created a testimony through Moses. God created a testimony through Joshua when He parted the Jordan River and allowed the people with the Ark to cross on dry land. When Lazarus lay dead for days, Jesus came and created a testimony of His ability to raise the dead.

Jesus is still looking for those who are willing to have a testimony created through their lives. One of the major characteristics of a God-ordained testimony is for something to happen that can’t be explained in the natural. In other words, if you can make it happen through your abilities, it is not a testimony about God, but about you.

I remember back to 2005 when I was invited to go to New York to a major conference, but I did not have the funds to go. I sensed that I was to attend this conference, but refused to use a credit card to fund the trip. I waited and waited. Finally, the office manager of the church in which I serve called and said I was to go to this conference and the church would fund the trip. She wrote a check for price of the trip and gave it to me. That has become a testimony of God’s activity in my life.

God wants to create a testimony in every aspect of your life – your family, your work, your church, and in your community. He is waiting to put His fingerprint on your next endeavor to reveal His power through your life. Look carefully at the events where God might want to create a testimony out of an impossible situation. He delights in using His children for this purpose because it brings Him glory.
