WHAT IS YOUR TESTIMONY?
Revelations 12:11; 19:10
THANKSGIVING, TESTIMONY AND DEDICATION SERVICE
What has God done for You?
What can you thank God for?
(Psalms 136:1-23) everybody has a testimony
-A testimony is that thing which the Lord has done
-Expressions of the signs of God that He is in the midst of His people
(Psalms 118:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:24)
Anytime we hold back testimonies we have given the devil enough time to express to the world that God is powerless. (John 9:25) Your testimony is a message it signifies/simplifies the gospel.
Give God thanks for every step you take that draws you closer to the fulfillment of your vision.
The good things about testimonies is that they give birth to more testimonies.
Existence without remembrance is existence for resistance.
If you can’t remember what God has done for you the devil will fight you to make sure you don’t get any.
5 THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT TESTIMONIES
-Testimonies magnify God: There is none like our God (Psalms 136:1-23; 115:1-11, 1 Thessalonians 5:24) You magnify God above all other gods when you testify.
-Your testimony amplifies the voice of the Kingdom of God and the Church:
-Your testimonies terrify hell: when you don’t share your testimonies you give the devil a chance to attack your testimony (1 Peter 5:8)
-Testimonies multiply the faith of other people: They are faith boosters and faith builders. Your testimony inspire other and let them know God can still do it with them.
WHO SHOULD TESTIFY?
-Everyone God has shown mercy: (Psalms 136:1) if you can’t thank God for anything thanks Him for Life
-Everyone with the evidence of the Lord (Psalms 118:23)
-Anybody with a grateful heart: Gratitude shows, it can’t be hidden.
-Someone who wants to encourage others: Testimonies are not just to glorify God it also has the capability to charge someone up. Let them know what God is doing in your life. Testimonies are arrow heads.
-Someone who wants their testimonies to be secured: Your testimony helps you to preserve itself.
-Someone who wants to enjoy their testimony:
WHERE SHOULD WE TESTIFY?
-In the House of the Lord: (Psalms 22:22; 66:16)
-In the congregation of the saints: As long as the devil has not stopped working, we should never stop heralding the goodness of the Lord.
-At the rooftop: My God is a good God and has done so much I can’t hide.
-Anywhere humans are found: Believers or not, at work or at home, tell someone and everyone about God’s wonderful works.
-In your private prayer life: thank God in your private prayers for what and things He has done for you.
-Before those who doubt God
HOW SHOULD WE TESTIFY?
-With our mouth: (Psalms 118:24)
-Through your dance of celebration
-Testify with offerings: Don’t thank God empty handed, it’s an insult to God. Testify with seeds.
-With our friends and family members: Pull your friends and all to Church to hear and see what God has done in your life.
WHEN SHOULD WE TESTIFY?
-When God has done (it (what He promises to do) Make sure God is glorified.
-When God is doing it: “…testimonies in process”
-When God has shown you the end of what He wants to do and He is involved in it.
WHAT WILL TESTIMONIES DO FOR YOU
-Causes God to do more for you: So you can tell the world more about Him.
-It establishes both the victory and the testimony of the testifiers. (Revelations 12:11)
