Why It’s Important to Cling to Testimonies and Share Yours
Are you aware of how powerful testimonies are? Do know why it’s so important to not only cling to others but share yours?
Let’s start out by defining the word testimony. A testimony is a solemn declaration or affirmation made for the purpose of establishing or proving some fact. The Hebrew word for testimony is “uwd” which is defined as “to return, go about, repeat or do again.”
So why are testimonies so important? Why should we care about them? Here is a list of some reasons:
Testimonies Reveal God’s Nature
It’s through hearing testimonies that we learn more about God. Testimonies help us understand His nature and character. Testimonies help us to hear practical every day stories of what God is doing as well as set us up to encounter His goodness and love.
Every Testimony is God-breathed and Contains Power
Testimonies themselves carry the DNA and the power of God.
Testimonies Prophesy Over Your Life
Revelation 19:10 says, “For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” What is prophecy?
Testimonies Build Your Faith
When you hear or read a testimony, it builds your faith because it helps you understand what God is capable of doing. For example, if you are currently trying to adopt a child but need funds, and you hear a testimony from someone else who received funding for their adoption, your faith is increased!
Testimonies Reveal What God Wants to Do For You
God is no respecter of persons. What God does for one, He wants to do for another.
The Importance of Sharing Your Testimony
God deserves all the glory for answering your prayers. Revelation 19:10 says, “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” When we live by the flesh, we become selfish and withhold the glory of what God has done. But when we live by the Spirit and pray for something, we realize it’s important to testify about it for all the reasons mentioned above.
As a Believer in Christ Jesus are responsible to:
1 – Celebrate testimonies – When you hear or read testimonies, celebrate them!
2 – Cling to testimonies – One of the most important things you can do while you are waiting on breakthrough is find testimonies and cling to them. Do you need a financial miracle? Find a testimony of God providing for someone else and expect that He will do the same for you. Do you need healing? Find a testimony of God healing someone else and expect that He will do the same for you. Does your spouse need to be set free from an addition? Find a testimony of God delivering someone else and expect that He will do the same for your spouse.
3 – Share your testimony – God deserves all the glory for what He has done in your life. Put your testimony in writing and share it with others.
