My season of testimony
Text: Psalm 66:16 “Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.”
Testimony is a form of praise and honour to Christ. Testimony is an uncommon expression, uncommon gratitude and uncommon display of appreciation given to God as a result of breakthrough, deliverance, solutions, signs and wonders received from God after many years of affliction, suffering, bonds and sorrow.
Testimony is when God turns:
• Mess into a Message
• Test into a Testimony
• Trial into Triumph
• Victim into a Victory
1Sam 2:1 says, “And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the Lord, mine horn is exalted in the Lord: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies because I rejoice in thy salvation.”
Hannah was barren for many years, but one day, God answered her prayer. She called unto God with faith and she gave birth to a boy. God turned her trial into triumph and she testified to the glory of God.
Brethren, always be positive about any situation you might be passing through. Positive minds produce positive lives. Negative minds produce negative lives. Positive thoughts are always full of hope and faith. Negative thoughts are always full of fear and doubt.
Hannah prayed with a mind of positivity and God gave her a beautiful testimony.
Brethren, add faith to your prayer and be ready to receive your testimony.
In Mark 5:1-19 “Jesus healed a man who has unclean spirit. After the man had deliverance, he wanted to go with Jesus. But in verse 19, Jesus refused. Rather, He told him to go home to his people and testify to what the Lord hath done for him.
Reasons for testimony in Christian lives include the following:
• To silence our enemies
• Testimony shows the greatness of God
• It encourages people and gives hope
• Testimony proves our faith.
The steps to take to have Testimony include:
• Accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.
• Have faith in God.
• Always pray with faith.
• Appreciate the blessings and miracles you have received in the past.
• Covet your testimony through others.
Testimony activates the power of God. It brings permanent joy, happiness and attracts more blessings. Brethren, don’t lose hope, but stay focused. It may seem impossible as the year is running to an end, but anything can happen in a day, for with God, all things are possible. This is your season of testimony.
I pray for you that in this month of December, The Almighty God shall give you a permanent miracle that will make you testify with joy.
