Testify-Tell Your Story!

We heard it twice at last nights Feminar®. Cindy Beall quoted Revelation 12:11 saying, “ They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony” as she reminded us to “share our story as we remind others of God’s faithfulness.” Then, Todd Smith of Selah, mentioned the same scripture, and led a thousand plus women to testify in song:

“I’m undone by the mercy of Jesus

I’m undone by the goodness of the Lord

I’m restored and made right

He got ahold of my life

I’ve got Jesus

How could I want more”

We’ve all heard this phrase, and maybe used it, “well speaking of the devil”. Here is a really good place to use that phrase, because the “him” that is overcome is the devil. The blood of Jesus conquered sin and death. He conquered the devil. Our testimony conquers the devil. So ladies, deal another blow to the enemy and tell someone what God has done in your life. If you were at Feminar® this weekend and God worked in your life, tell someone. Tell your friend who you came with, tell you husband, your co-workers, your children, or your neighbors. The enemy wants you to keep it to yourself. Our culture wants to silence us in the name of diversity and political correctness. 

My wife, Janet White, and I ran in the Houston Aramco Half Marathon last month. I got across the finish line a little ahead of her so I made my way to a viewing spot close to the finish line. When I saw her coming, I was overwhelmed with emotion. As she passed by, something happened as I tried to yell out her name. I took a deep breath and I couldn’t speak. I was  overcome with emotion as tears filled my eyes. I wanted to cheer her on but nothing came out.

You may not hear anyone cheering you on in this race, but they are there. You may not hear them but they are there. Hebrews calls them a “great cloud of witnesses”. Your name is being called out. So Run! Testify! Tell Your Story!
