Revelation 12:11 – 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. 

Are you living life as an overcomer rather than a survivor? Here is the difference: The world celebrates survivors–those who suffer and live to tell about it. But people of God are called to be overcomers–someone who gets beat up but rises and chases the bully away. Be an overcomer!

Declaration: I’m an overcomer. I take territories from the enemy and occupy them. I testify of the goodness of God everywhere I go.

Enhancement vs. Newness

Are you a person of revelation that is tapped into testimony? Just so you know, your testimony is not what you did before you were saved. That’s your history. We don’t live according to history because our history is all about death.

Your testimony is who Jesus is to you. How He’s shown up and how you have known Him by personal experience. When you testify to Jesus, it’s all about how He saved you and redeemed every part of your life. It’s all about life.

Because you and I are carnal, we come before God and we’re looking for enhancement. We just want to be better, do better and have better. That’s a pretty small vision.

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. – 2 Corinthians 3:18

God’s not looking for enhancement. No, sir! He’s looking for transformation. He doesn’t want to just take what you’ve got and make it better, He wants to take what you’ve got, throw it in the trash and give you something awesome – something that looks like Him. Amen.

When He does that – when He starts moving you into your destiny – you’ll find your testimony is full of life. It’s full of upgrade, yes, but better than that, it’s full of newness. The experience of Jesus is always transformational. He loves you how you are, but He also loves you too much to leave you that way!
