The Importance of Your Testimony…

I don’t know what the Lord has done for you – what He has accomplished on your behalf.  It may be an incredible story of His power and grace.

But, you may be one of those people who does not find it easy to talk publicly about what has happened to you.  On the other hand, sharing personal experiences with others may not be difficult for you at all.  In either case there is great value in “giving the Lord credit for what He has done!”  It honors Him, it encourages others, it gives them hope, and it acknowledges WHO ought to receive the credit for the victories in your life…

David, the psalmist said, “I proclaim Your saving acts in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips… I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help. I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness from the great assembly…”

In the same Psalm he testified and said… “I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry.  He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.  He put a new son in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.  Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in Him… Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done – the things you planned for us!  None can compare with You!  Were I to speak and tell of your deeds they would be too many to declare!”  (From Psalm 40)

So here’s a word of encouragement…  If you are timid or reticent, please speak up anyway!… We need to hear what God has done for you!  If you’re not inhibited at all… please give God the credit for what He has done.  Where?  “In the great assembly” (and to anyone God gives you the opportunity to share it with today).  Here’s one person who will be listening…
