Devotion: Testify God not Gold

5

Revelation 12 : 11 ” And they overcame him(devil) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

The blood was already shed but testimony is a continuous process. Have a habit of testifying even the very small things that the Lord has done for you. You will move from victory to victory. You will live as a victor all the way.When you testify you are not boasting but you are doing the Word. In your testimony you lead people to God.

When Hezekiah was sick he prayed to God and the Lord heard his prayer and healed him. Isa 38:4-5 ” The Lord told Isaiah,  “Go and tell Hezekiah: ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: “I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will add fifteen years to your life.”

bibleWhen Merodach was coming to congratulate him, the best thing would have been to testify to Merodach about the God of Israel that had healed him. To testify His greatness and encourage  Merodach that whatever problem he had, the Lord Almighty would deal with it. He would have led him to be a believer of God. Instead he was busy showing him his wealth and armory. He concentrated on gold and not Cod in his testimony.

Isa 39:1-2 ” At that time Merodach-Baladan son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a gift to Hezekiah, for he heard that Hezekiah had been ill and had recovered.  Hezekiah welcomed them and showed them his storehouse with its silver, gold, spices, and high-quality olive oil, as well as his whole armory and everything in his treasuries. Hezekiah showed them everything in his palace and in his whole kingdom.”

A victorious testimony leads people to Christ and not mere things. Learn to testify about the God and His goodness. Don’t concentrate much on the things he has given but on the giver. Lead people to God and not mere gold.  You can win others to Christ by such a testimony.

Prayer

Thank you father for your Word. As I rise higher and higher in  life, I will not forget to testify about you so that I can win souls through  testimonies. In Jesus name. Amen
