I've been thinking a lot lately about the purpose of testimonies. God's Word says that we overcome by the Blood of The Lamb and the word of our testimony (Rev. 12:11).
What is it we overcome?
We overcome all the devices of Satan to kill, steal, and destroy our faith, love, and credibility. Because of the shed Blood of Jesus Christ and by the words we speak forth of the goodness of God in our lives, we OVERCOME!
Each time we share a testimony of what God has done for us, we climb the ladder of faith one rung higher. We not only build our own faith but the faith of those who listen or read our testimonies. Testimonies are herculean faith-builders.
The spoken word is a very powerful thing. Prov. 18:21 says, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." We destroy or we build up with our words. We build our faith with our words in the same way.
I'm writing my memoir - but of a very different sort. God Almighty has done so many supernatural things in my life that they need to be shared. I speak of them whenever the situation is appropriate and I'm writing of them for posterity's sake.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. ~ Hebrews 11:1I would like to share YOUR testimonies on my blog. Please share them with me. They can be old or new ones. And it doesn't make any difference whether you think you can write well or not. This is to glorify God, not ourselves. Let's share the marvelous things our God has done for us. Please email them to me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to reading your testimonies - short or long - old or new - and I will gladly, gladly post them.
Because of Him and Unto Him,
