TEEVO DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JULY 17, 2022 (TESTIFY!)
TOPIC : “TESTIFY! (Your Testimony Makes Room For More Blessings In Your Life)”
Scripture: Revelation 12:11
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
Phil had just received a miracle in his body and he was so excited that he told everyone about it when he got to school. Larry, his friend, got concerned and asked him after a while, “Why do you have to keep telling everyone what God did for you? Don’t you think you’re taking it a little too far?” “Well Larry, it’s important that I testify of the Lord’s goodness to me. That way I get to keep my miracle,” Phil responded. Our opening Scripture says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” (Revelation 12:11). If you don’t testify of what the Lord has done for you, chances are you’ll lose it. Your testimony endorses your miracle and creates room for you to receive more blessings from the Lord.
Read the story of the woman with the issue of blood in Luke 8. It’s a perfect example of how by openly testifying of what God has done for you, not only is your miracle established, but it also creates the opportunity for more blessings (Luke 8:43-48). She got much more than healing; she was made whole because she testified openly.
It’s the same thing with receiving salvation. Jesus Christ has saved the whole world through His death, and so, legally, every man, woman, boy and girl that ever came into this world, and that will ever come has been saved. But it’s only the one who testifies of the Lordship of Jesus over him, believing that God raised Him from the dead, that is catapulted into salvation! Your testimony of Jesus as Lord of your life and Saviour of your soul activates the power of God that causes you to experience the vital reality of salvation. So, continue to testify that you’re a Christian. Your testimony keeps you permanently above every satanic onslaught.
Psalm 26:7; Mark 5:18-20; Romans 10:9-10
Dear Father, I thank you for the many blessings in my life that I experience daily; thank you most of all for the wonderful salvation you wrought for me in Christ. My heart is filled with gratitude and my mouth with praise to you for your loving kindness, mercy, grace and love for me. I’ll testify of your goodness to the world in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
