- OUR TESTINGS BECOME OUR GREATEST TESTIMONIES
It is not uncommon for any believers to go through hills and valleys in life. Each of us has our own share of struggles and frustrations, difficulties and failures. We have our own fears and doubts and unbelief. Yet, its purpose is not to totally crush us but that we would be able to come out on the other side, with a refined character and with a greater faith.
Our great stories and testimonies are often birthed when we go through seemingly hopeless situations. It is when we have exhausted all our efforts and find ourselves again on our knees that God works wonders and miracles in us. We experience Him more when we are in the deep waters. God always rescues and delivers us with His righteous right hand. Our answered prayers are proof that God is listening to our cries.
- OUR MESS BECOMES OUR POWERFUL MESSAGE
We were all wandering in different directions until we met Jesus. Suddenly,
our lives are never the same again. God found us in our miserable and sinful state, but He did not leave us there. He carried us on His arms and allowed us to experience His love and transforming power. We can all testify how God lifted us up from the miry clay and that is our message of hope and love. Our God is able to turn our mess into a powerful message. And this is true until now.
God invited us to come to His table to experience all that He is. He puts His Holy Spirit in us, transforming us from glory to glory. “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. Zechariah 4:6
He turned our heart of stone to a heart of flesh. We are new creation in Christ Jesus- the old has gone, the new is here! 1 Corinthians 5:17.
- THROUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST THAT GIVES US THE VICTORIES
Through our God we have a victory in Jesus name. Our enemy has been defeated 2000 years ago at the cross of Calvary where Christ overcame sin and death. We are set free and victorious in Christ. He is our banner over all our battles. Thus, we call all say, “Victory, victory is mine! Hallelujah!”
Even though our hearts and flesh may fail, God is the strength our hearts and our portion forever. Psalm 73:26.
Let the weak say I am strong Let the poor say I am rich because of what the Lord has done for us.
