“They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not love their lives in the face of death.” Revelation 12:11
Greetings fellow sojourners! Do you have this verse committed to memory yet?! Let’s look at the last portion of this verse. “…for they did not love their lives in the face of death.” Those spoken of in this verse would face death for the sake of giving their testimony. The impact of the shed blood of Christ on our behalf is what has allowed us to even have a testimony. Have you given thought to your testimony?
Let’s look at it from a different perspective. You have a testimony to the evidence or proof of Jesus’ transforming power in your life. Are you willing to share this evidence with others even if it seems to be a ‘death’ to your facade (outward appearance that is maintained to conceal a less pleasant or creditable reality) because you are ‘so different now’? We are all so different now because of Jesus! Thank you Lord for that!! Even if you are still pressing forward with your testimony, it is still a testimony.
The enemy will give you plenty to ‘worry about’ but just press on. Don’t worry about perfection in writing, just write. Don’t worry that your testimony is ‘not as significant’ as someone else’s, just give it. Don’t worry if you have to condense it, just speak from your heart. Don’t worry if you don’t have time, just make time. Don’t worry if you don’t see the point, just trust the Word.
So, what is your testimony friend? Please include it here in the comment section. Do you recall hearing or reading about someone’s testimony that encouraged you to press on in this life? Don’t forget to read the testimonies from November 10th forward!
As we approach the official day this nation as set aside to give Thanks, I am thankful for you. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you and give you peace. We have many reasons to be thankful DIVAs! I challenge you right now as you read this to verbalize 10 of them. Amen!
In His grace,
