I cannot keep quiet! I must boast in the Lord! “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together” (Psalm 34:1-3).
During our first Sunday service of 2019 we listened to some awesome testimonies. It was an opportunity for those who have experienced the Mercy and Goodness of God in a marvelous way to Glorify His Name, publicly. The God of wonders was with DESATAR in 2018, and we have a great expectation for 2019. He has done, will do, and is doing great things among us! Only a handful were able to share this Sunday, but I know personally that there are many, many, more with a “Look What God Did” testimony!
This is what has happened/happening at DESATAR Ministry (verified testimonies): -Cancers are rebuked - people are being healed! -Addictions are canceled – people are being set free! -Internal organs are renewed – The Great Physician is blowing the mind of doctors! -Death sentences are overturned – Those sentenced to death have risen and are walking! -Depressions are canceled – the Joy of the Lord is casting away depressiveness! -Financial breakthrough is happening – the children are experiencing unprecedented advancement in their careers and finances. -Salvation and Reconciliation are manifested (my favorite kind of testimony!) – Sons and daughters are coming home, many are leaving the darkness to come to the light! Families are being restored and souls are being saved!!
Will you try God in this? If there are only a few miracles in the Church today, it is because there are only a few willing to proclaim the move of God. We cannot attribute what we prayed for fervently to the natural, what we deemed at one point impossible, as to suggest that it was by the power or intelligence of men. Don’t get me wrong, God will still use a mule and cause rocks to cry out – because He can use the natural means to establish a miracle in your life.
The Holy Spirit is still moving! The supernatural is not reserved for the Book of Acts/NT, it has not ceased, as some suggest. Miracles, signs, and wonders CONTINUE to be the present-day reality for those who believe! Will you try God in this? Pray without ceasing! Believe without wavering! Wait with assurance! And when it manifests, TESTIFY for His Glory!!
Why Testify? If you want to see an increase of the supernatural in your life and in the Church, Then TESTIFY! I believe that once the Church begins to increase its proclamation of what God has done, no matter how small or great, miracles will multiply! We cannot keep silent. We must be witnesses of the Gospel that contains the primary and superior message of Salvation (there is no greater miracle than salvation), but it also includes the Truth that God is still willing to move in the lives of believers in an Awesome way!
We must Testify! To testify is a legal term. It is to give evidence as a witness in a court of law. We are called to be witnesses of God (in this world). We can stand before any court, judge and jury and testify of The Lord’s Salvation and of His unending Mercy, Goodness, and Grace! If we remain silent, we are in danger of becoming practical antagonists. We would unwittingly become corroborating witnesses with the accuser (the enemy). If we fail to be steadfast and believe that God can still move mountains and speak contrary to the Lord’s Mercy, Goodness, and Grace, then we are in danger of becoming false witnesses. - We need to go into this New Year with expectation and a proclamation of the supernatural. Put away the cynicism, which is that the Word proclaimed is NOT God’s word for your life. Put away Skepticism – and believe that the promises of God are yes and amen! Beloved, God Still Performs Miracles! This is why: They are a foreshadow of things to come. They are a demonstration of His Omnipotence – proof that nothing can limit God. They are an expression of His Compassion and Love towards us. But, most importantly they are the evidence of the things we Hope for! Your Testimony will inspire hope, shatter doubt, and increase faith! Will you Testify!
In 2019 you need to be ready to testify of the Goodness, Mercy, and Grace of God. Be Bold and unashamed. You don’t need a platform to stand upon on a Sunday morning. Your pulpit is in front of you, everywhere you go, any day of the week. Be ready to proclaim “Look at what God did!” Then get ready for fruitfulness and multiplication in your life and church!
I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. Psalm 9:1
