The Testimony of God

13 May

Have you ever considered that God has a testimony?

A formal statement spoken in the court of the heavenlies regarding YOU?

A written recounting of His story specifically with YOU?

This was the verse that ran through my heart recently as I listened to two beautiful Sisters share their heartfelt desire to make the transforming work of their Father and the limitless goodness of His love known to their community.  It struck me as these Beauties spoke about the tenderness and compassion of God that the enormity of His testimony, the magnitude of His story, is too much for one person to tell so He etches Himself across our hearts in unique and personal ways to give us each a portion to share.

Our testimonies are His pages and His chapters unfolding across time and space to speak the fullness of Him into the very place and appointed time He has determined we should live.  You, Sister, are here and now to live His story to the full. To know and enjoy the One who has spoken the formal statement of His love over you with one Word:  Jesus.

And praise His Matchless Name, the Author of Life continues to write His life story over our hearts.  He continues to weave the beauty of Himself over our days and He splashes His unending love across our pages.  He performs personal wonders in our lives as we live out the testimony of His miracles side-by-side.  He brings each of our short stories into a seamless novel of redemption and invites us to share His glory with the world. O Lord, may we never shrink back.  May we always announce through word and deed that You still etch Yourself on hearts today, that Your testimony is salvation, and the ultimate triumph, the final miracle of the Messiah in our day, is yet to unfold.

Jesus did many other things as well. If everyone of them was written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.   John 21:25

O Sister, Rejoice! and again I say rejoice! YOU are a portion of the testimony of God, a piece of His story! YOU are a beautiful page in the Lamb’s Book of Life and your most magnificent chapter is waiting in Glory!
