Be Still Know

Psalm 94.18-19 NLT

I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord, supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.

Sharing honestly and openly what God has done in our lives is incredibly powerful. The most wonderful thing about testimony is that nobody can deny it. Other people might choose to interpret our experiences differently from us, but the moment we declare our personal accounts of how we have seen God at work in our lives they are bound to take note of what we have said. I draw the conclusion from this that we need to give one another generous opportunities to share what God has done.

Sharing our testimonies is good at every level. In a large congregation they can inspire faith and stimulate worship. However, it is particularly good when we share our experiences in small groups where we can be totally honest with one another and where one person’s testimony can trigger other people to share what they have been through. But probably the most important time to speak of what God has done is one to one. Within the intimacy of a private conversation, we can share our experiences and then explore them with one another. The most important thing is that we don’t keep our testimonies to ourselves. They need to be shared.

In the New Testament we often find the apostle Paul sharing the account of his conversion, but he also loved to speak of the new things that God was doing in his life. He travelled from church to church around the Eastern Mediterranean bringing them up to date with the ways in which the Holy Spirit was blessing the church. And in his letters, he spoke openly and honestly about how God was using him even when he was in prison and battling with his “thorn in the flesh”.

Whoever we are, and whatever experiences we may have, each of us has a unique account of what God has done in our lives – and we need to share it.

Question: What is your own testimony of God at work in your life?

Prayer: Dear Father, thank you that you are alive and at work in my life, day by day. Give me courage and determination to share my testimony with others. Amen
