Do you ever ask yourself why our spiritual leaders always encourage us to tell others what the Lord has done for us? Well, the Author and Finisher of our faith, Jesus, always points us to the right thing to do. There would be so much to be proud of if we just hearken to His words and embrace his will.
Jesus’ spiritual and practical ways of doing things lead us to the way we should live our lives. “I mean giving back the glory and praise to the One who deserves it.” And testifying of the wonderful things He’s done in our lives is one of the spiritual and practical ways that yield praise and glory to the Father that we should always do. He wants us to let others know that with God there’s nothing impossible. He wants our testimonies to be sermons especially to the people who know what we’ve been through. He wants our testimonies to be heard and encourage those who had lost hope.
Has God brought you victory over the oppressor? Hallelujah! He says to you and me, “Go back to your family, and tell them everything God has done for you.” I just love the style in which the man of Gerasenes handled his testimony after being delivered from the Legion of demons. He didn’t keep his testimony just to the family but he made sure that the whole city witnesses to the greatness of God. He made his testimony a sermon to the whole city. Luke 8:38-39 says, “But the man from whom the demons had gone out kept begging Him, pleading to go with Him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, “Return home and tell [about] all the great things God has done for you.” So the man went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him.”
Our testimonies highlight victory over our enemy through Christ. Our testimonies are iron nails into the devil’s skull. Jesus loves it when we go back to our people and tell them the story of our deliverance from any situation.
Life is full of testimonies. It would have been so difficult for the Apostle Paul to be accepted and believed if he had not testified about the way the Lord met him and transformed his life. (Acts 22:6-21)
Sometimes people want to know how you became what you are today so they can trust you. Paul, formerly known as a “persecutor”, his testimony of transformation lives to this day and has transformed many, many lives. Our testimonies glorify God and prove the devil a liar. Let your testimony be heard. Let those who hear your testimony know how grateful you are and glorify God.
All glory, praise, majesty, and honor be unto the Lord, God for the much great things He’s done for us. Hallelujah!
Jesus Is Lord!
