OVERCOME, BY YOUR TESTIMONIES
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*OVERCOME, BY YOUR TESTIMONIES.*
1 Cor 11:30-33--► *If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Share your weaknesses more than your strengths. Share your weaknesses before you became strengthened. It may help someone.
Most of us often fail to share our weaknesses. For example when things were not good, times of lack, times or sickness, really challenging times and how God saved us. We tend to share only how God delivered us.
It is good to let us know how God delivered us because He is our ultimate.
However, sharing our weaknesses does encourage others in distress, informing them first, that no one is above challenges and also encouraging them that if God can do it for you, He can do it for them.
To think about it, the reason why we went through e.g bareness, delay etc is that we may be able to comfort others who may go through such in future.
Jesus told Peter in Luke 22:32 *But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.*
Paul declared to us all he went through, the perils, the shipwreck etc, in 2 Cor 11: 25-28.
He concluded saying in 1 Cor 11: 29-30 saying *Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?*
*If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.*
Share your tough path. It may be the pathfinder someone has been looking to find.
Share those challenges and how God delivered you. It may be what someone had been waiting for years, to encourage or rekindle his hope and keep his faith in Jesus.
*Call to Word action.*
Remember people are always eager to know people who underwent what they are going through now and how they got delivered. They are also eager to know those who are going through what they are going through and how God saved them.
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Revelation 12:11---► *And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.*
Overcome and let others overcome by your testimonies.
Help me to strengthen someone by my testimonies of your goodness in my life, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
