1 122313 Testimony

Good day everyone. The Lord has been prompting me to share this message with all of you because there are some that were not in the family the last time it was shared, so if you were blessed the first time this message was sent out, you will be doubly blessed this time around. If this is your first time with the message, let it deep into your spirit and be blessed.

Today’s Prayer

Father, Is our testimony what it should be? What would others say about our testimony for You? Can others see Your work in our lives? Please forgive us where we have failed. We are sorry for disappointing You, for not spending as much time with You as we should, for not always doing the things we should, and for the wrong things we sometimes choose to do. Please work on us and build a testimony of Your life in and through us today. We praise You and thank You in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Your Testimony

I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. ~ John 3:11

Over the last several years I have seen two distinct types of Christian believers. One type enthusiastically teaches their Bible knowledge to others. These people, though they may be genuine in their motive, lack one essential ingredient to being effectively used by God – a testimony. The second type of people I have encountered has a genuine testimony of what God is doing and continues to do in their lives. This was the case in the early Church. Men and women were able to give powerful testimony of events and experiences that could only be explained as a work of God.

God desires to build a testimony in each of us. Each of us is one of God’s chosen vessels to reflect His power in and through us. When others see this power reflected, they are impacted because they can’t explain that power. God desires to frame your life with experiences designed to reflect the character and nature of Christ. Sometimes these events can be very devastating, but they are designed to reveal His power in and through us. Every one of us has a testimony. What would others say your testimony is today?

Can others see God’s work in your life?

Is your testimony one of Bible knowledge only?

Are things happening in your life that can only be explained as God?

These can be problematic questions for each of us. Ask God to build a testimony of His life in and through you today. If you ask with a spiritually open heart, He will most certainly answer.

Quote of the Day

Do you have a hunger for God? If we don’t feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory of God, it is not because we have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because we have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Our soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great. If we are full of what the world offers, then perhaps a fast might express, or even increase, our soul’s appetite for God. Between the dangers of self-denial and self-indulgence is the path of pleasant pain called fasting. -John Piper
