There is something about testifying the goodness of God, so much so that the enemy hates those who do it and is constantly waging war to destroy their testimony!!! Remember, we are living in the end of end times… and the demonic Kingdom knows that its time is very very very limited!!! The strongest attacks of the enemy is now accelerated toward the church as a whole!!! The battle is intense…indeed!!! How do we overcome? – a perspective from my end:
Last week as I was reading the book of Revelation, this thing struck me!!! Revelation 6 talks about a group of people who were slain by the enemy for 1. the word of God and 2. for the testimony which they held. That’s how intense, his hatred toward our testimony is!!!
Interesting!!! We who have known and tasted the goodness of God, hold a beautiful testimony of the Lord’s mercies in our lives!!! When we talk of a ‘testimony’, it simply means that satan’s plans were thwarted, and the Lords purposes and plans for us, prevailed!!!
And if we go on to read Revelation 12, it talks about how the people of God overcame the enemy. It was 1. by the blood of the Lamb and 2. by the word of their testimony!!!
The first part, Jesus has already done it for us by shedding his blood on the cross… Quite evidently, the second part is our part. Testifying of God’s goodness is an amazing weapon to defeat enemy’s hold over our lives!!!
Another aspect of testifying that I have learned over the years is this: “Declaring God’s goodness over our lives by Faith, even before our physical eyes actually sees it”!!! That affirms to the spiritual world that our lives are maneuvered by God and not the enemy!!!
We can see this virtue in King David, all throughout the book of psalms!!! He praised God even before the victory, trusting God that HE WILL give the victory over his enemy!!!
Outstanding Faith indeed!!! May we imitate such heroes of Faith!!!
God’s thoughts and plans for our nations, families and our children are always nothing less than amazing!!! So declare by Faith: Thank you Lord that you have made my children the head and not the tail (Deut 28:13)!!! Thank you Lord that you have plans to prosper us in every way and not to harm us (Jer 29:11)!!! Thank you Lord that you always give us more than we ask or imagine(Eph 3:20)!!! God is good all the time… and all the time, God is good!!!
