I know most of you have heard the verse that "the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" (Rev. 19:10c), but have you ever thought about what that looks like in everyday life? One of the ways people know you're in Christ is by the God-stories in your life; by the testimonies that are consistently displaying Jesus working in and through you. The beginning of our testimonies is our salvation, but God's heart is that we would grow in His displays of affection over our lives. Salvation is just the beautiful beginning.
I know that when we're young in Christ, it's easier to be amazed by testimonies because everything is shiny and new. I love the zeal new believers walk in, but the truth is that as we age in God, our testimonies should increase. We should grow in courage as we grow in our connection with the one who makes us courageous. I want to invite you to watch this video to hear more about the importance of growing in our testimonies as we get older.
So wherever you are in your walk with God today, I want to challenge you to go deeper, push further and take a bigger risk. How can you be growing in your testimonies? Maybe it's simply sharing something amazing He's doing in your life with a friend, and maybe it's stepping out to pray for someone for healing. Whatever your step in courage is today, I bless you with increase in power, authority and strength to keep running the good race He has set before you. If you have any cool testimonies to share, I'd love to hear them in the comments below. Perhaps that's your step forward today, and I'd love to be a part of it.
