God Story! Testimony!

What is your God story, your testimony, your bold word of witness?

This mixed with the blood of the Lamb is what overcomes Satan! It defeat fear, opposition, doubt, and everything evil.

They overcame, conquered, defeated him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb and the bold words, witness of their testimony. Revelation 12:11

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Testimony! Yours And Mine!

What is your testimony? What is my testimony? The experiences of your life, your successes, and failures, your pain, disappointments and all. The sum of all your experiences, has it in anyway served to advance the gospel? Have you even thought of the positive impact it would have? A pure reflection of an awesome God, full of love, mercy and compassion! Or has it only been a roller coaster of pity party?

Apostle Paul, having been imprisoned, gave a testimony in Philippians 1:12- 19 that what has happened to him has actually served to advance the gospel.13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. 14 And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have confident in testthe Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. 16 The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. 17 The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, 19 for I know that through your prayers and God’s provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.

The events, the happenings in a life yielded to Christ Jesus must of necessity glorify God. Your life, my friend and I should reflect an aspect of Christ’s presence, like the burning bush Moses witnessed in Exodus 3:2-3.

I sure hope and pray that unbelievers and believers likewise are been encouraged by your life and mine. Or are they been discouraged? Do they really want to know the God we profess? Your character and mine, our way of life, is it worthy of emulation?

Friends, let us allow Christ to be exalted in our life. Be a good example of a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, full of compassion, kind and gracious. Receive grace to live a life worthy of Christ’s calling on your life. Philippians 1:27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.

Many Are Hungry! Can I Help?

God showed Peter a sheet filled with all kinds of animals. Peter refused to eat unclean animals and Christ said, ” call not unclean what the Lord has cleansed.
Friends many are hungry for the gospel, the harvest is ripe, are we ready to bring in the harvest?

Featured Image -- 5311My neighbors are seniors in their sixties. We chat every now and then. A while back when the  brother was diagnosed with cancer she came to me and we prayed. I did not follow up since then only to just happen to be at a picnic with other neighbors and I heard her giving the testimony of that prayer in the hallway. I prayed with her that day but was I expectant? If I were, I guess I would have followed up and the likes eh!

For the last three years that I’ve had this couple as my neighbor, I have not once asked them to come to Church or spoken about my faith with so much passion. Then a few days ago, my neighbor came over and asked for the address of my Church, I gave it to her, showed her the website and the likes, but did I look out for her on Sunday,  if she came as she had stated she would come? No! I did not remember to look out for her and on my way home after stopping by here and there, she called me to ask if I was in Church! I was surprised outrightly and felt uneasy! Why am I not showing as much interest as this retiry? She invited us over for chit chat, she spoke about attending bible class on Friday, browsed through her individually handwritten American Bible and went back home.

Of course I knew God was speaking to me through these interactions but I wasn’t getting it until I stopped by a dollar store on Tuesday, quite a distance from home and met my neighbor right in front of the store on their way home. They stopped the car, said hi and  they went on to tell me that they came by to get some note pads and highlighters for bible class at Church. I was stunned by their eagerness,  yearning to learn more about the Lord, and here was I, Pastor/ evangelist/ apostle/ woman of God, without so much a flicker of enthusiasm! What has gone wrong for I was never like this? Is my joy cooling off or what?

Brethren, the harvest is plenty and there are not enough laborers. It is not enough that we go to Church, neighbors know us as Christians, we should disciple all. Many people are thirsty and hungry for the Lord, and if we do not speak and act with conviction like that servant girl in Captivity in Syria, the many Naamans out there would never know that there is a God in Israel.

Lord forgive me for allowing the cares of living to distract me from the purpose for which you have commissioned me. You said go ye into the world and preach the gospel, baptizing in the name of the Lord….
May I henceforth be a true ambassador and be a light to show the way to the yet unsaved in Jesus mighty name Amen.

Live The Word!

The humblest citizen of all the land, when clad in the armor of a righteous cause, is stronger than all the hosts of error.

The way to develop self-confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of successful experiences behind you.

destiny-william-jennings-bryanWhat next? What is required of me you might ask? In your everyday interaction showcase Jesus. Share your testimony – the many things God has done for you, starting from your salvation. Live the word!

Friends, look for opportunity to serve, anything no matter what, do it for Jesus. On your blogs, share stories about the goodness of God. Be aware that when God speaks to you through His word, dreams, insight and so on it is for the good of all. Don’t keep it to yourself alone except He instruct you otherwise and if it’s a sensitive issue. I have been very guilty of this, for what God says to one, He says to ALL!

Put your faith to action and partner with the Holy Spirit to reach out and start living for what you believe. The Lord is faithful and will bring every promise to pass in your life. Every encounter with you let it be refreshing. Let the joy of the Lord radiate through you to many. Smile, be happy, whatever personal chaos will pass, it has not come to stay. In the process of meeting others needs, your needs are been met also. You will receive insight that will spearhead the solution to your issues and many others. Yield totally your members for Christ to use to soothe the broken hearted.

Shalom
