We need to turn up the volume of the testimonies in our lives and in the lives of others.
Reminding ourselves of our testimonies stirs our faith. It reminds us that God has provided for us, answered our prayer, healed us. When we are feeling discouraged or up against a wall, remembering the testimonies strengthens us.
Listening to the testimony of others encourages us that God can do it again. There is power in the testimony. The Hebrew root for “testimony” means “do again”. Every record of what God has done in the Bible, for others is a promise that He can do it again for us. Because He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is no respecter of persons.
God who promises to provide, who has provided for us, will provide again. Testimonies like this mean that we should and can look on our natural situations with a God perspective. We need to REMEMBER them, celebrate them.
“Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul; and forget not all His benefits.” (Psalm 103:1-2)
