WHAT ARE YOU GIVING AWAY?
God is introducing Himself to Moses and He shows up in the form of a miraculous sign. Catch this, how God first appears to you is how you will demonstrate Him. For the next 40 years of his life, the way Moses demonstrated God was through signs, miracles, and wonders.
That’s why your testimony is so important. Some believe your testimony includes what you did before you were saved. Not true. That is your history. Your testimony is who you say Jesus is to you now. It’s what makes us all overcomers.
If God first showed Himself to you through love, chances are your love for people is a huge part of your testimony. Maybe your first impression of God was mercy. You may exhibit incredible mercy toward others. God is relational! How he relates to you is most likely how you relate to others.
Webster’s Dictionary defines an ambassador as “an authorized representative or messenger.” The word says we are ambassadors of Christ:
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. – 2 Corinthians 5:20 (NIV)
God shows up to Moses as this supernatural thing – a regular bush with His power in it – which made it amazing, and that’s what Moses became. He had the power of God within his life. Anyone else would have been destroyed – consumed with all he endured. Not Moses. The unconsuming fire of God was with him.
You can only give what you have and that’s exactly what Peter said at the gate called Beautiful: “Such as I have I give unto you. Be healed.”
What are you giving away? Does it speak of Jesus and how He showed up to you? If it doesn’t, start talking about your destiny and leave your history where it belongs – in the past.
From my sermon series EXODUS
TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I am the God who never changes. I have given you the ministry of reconciliation. The way I relate to you is the way you will relate to others. Be my representative. Tell all you see who I Am to you. Tell them I Am.
