TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Do you remember where God has rescued you in the past? Use it as a testimony to tell others of the goodness of God and see how he breaks through in their life! Your testimony is part of what makes you an overcomer!
LIVING A RESCUED LIFE
A few years back, Poland suffered a brutal winter. Temperatures were -31 degrees without the wind chill. Every river in the nation was frozen.
The day the ice broke and the rivers began to flow again, a pure bred German Shepherd whom I like to call Lucky, was walking across the ice in Warsaw. Poor Lucky quickly found himself floating on a small patch of ice moving swiftly down the river.
Police and firefighters tried to rescue him, but the current was moving fast. They lost him.
Two days later, the captain of a fishing boat spotted something strange in the Baltic Sea. He steered the boat closer and found a dog struggling not to fall into the sea. He managed to scoop Lucky up and wrap him in a blanket. The dog had traveled 70 miles downriver and 13 miles out to sea. That’s one blessed dog!
I think it’s important for you and I, as Christians, to live lives that demonstrate how we’ve been rescued. Show me a person who’s been rescued from certain death and I’ll show you somebody who loves life and wants to live it to the full.
Just like that, nobody with a real revelation of what it means to be saved, or rescued by Christ, pines for the good old days. We should be looking forward and doing good works so people will say, “Why do you do all that?” Then we get to testify to a love that saves for eternity.
Living a rescued life means testifying to the goodness and resurrection power of Jesus Christ. I know I’m living a rescued life. Are you?
“For whomever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. He and his household.”
– Romans 10:13
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO LIVE LIKE YOU’VE JUST ESCAPED HELL. BREAK THE CHAINS OF THOSE STILL IN BONDAGE WITH YOUR TESTIMONY OF SAVING GRACE.
