TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Whether you understand it or not, you are an overcomer. God is writing your story. Use it to overcome fear and doubt in the lost and hurting. You are a powerful witness and Jesus has your back!
TESTIFY TO LOVE
The Bible says you and I are overcomers. How do we get that way? Revelation says it best.
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. – Revelation 12:11
See, your testimony is your personal experience with the Lord. It’s an accounting of all the places He’s been with you and the hell you’ve taken Him through. It’s a record of the many times He’s saved you, turned you around and used you to bring the Kingdom of heaven to earth.
Just like you testify, or witness to something in a court of law, your testimony is the truth of what you’ve seen, heard and experienced about Jesus. And that testimony is powerful.
It is hope to the hopeless. When you tell them how God took mourning and gave you joy, they can believe in a good God.
It is peace to the restless. When you testify to a changed heart and fresh way of thinking, they will thirst after righteousness.
It is healing to the hurting. When you witness about His saving grace, the lost will be found and the dead will be raised to life.
Not sure what to say to that stranger? Afraid of rejection from your family or friends who need Jesus? Fear not! Just tell them your story and let Jesus use it to overcome their objections and doubts. How? With the blood of the lamb. Remember, it takes the blood of the lamb and the word of your testimony to overcome a skeptical heart. Jesus, not you, is responsible for the outcome.
It’s comforting to know God didn’t ask you to be a public speaker or evangelist. He asked you to be a witness to His impeccable character and unending love.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:8
Tell people how Jesus rescued you and changed your life in miraculous ways. The gates of hell cannot prevail against the truth of God.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO TESTIFY TO LOVE. BE A WITNESS TO A HURTING WORLD THAT JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. HE’S MIGHTY TO SAVE AND WILLING TO DO SO.
