I’m still rejoicing over all the amazing testimonies from the service last night at Hope Harbor. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. We need to hear the word of God taught and preached but we also need to pause to reflect about how God has shown up and shown out to manifest what has been preached. When Jesus identified himself in Luke 4 as the anointed one mentioned by Isaiah, he emphasized that the anointing is for the purposes of (1) preaching about what God wants to do, and (2) demonstrating what has been preached.
It’s obvious that the anointed one has been busy and active in our midst. Individuals shared stories of supernatural provision, healing, emotinal restoration, and personal spiritual growth. Let’s all remember that we are all overcomers and we are taught in Scripture that we overcome (1) through the blood of the lamb – our covenant with the Father through the blood of Jesus Christ, (2) the word of our testimony – bearing witness to our personal salvation and the various ways that salvation impacts our lives, and (3) loving not our lives even unto death – living as though we were dead to self and allowing Jesus to live through us daily.
Keep those testimonies coming. Feel free to leave your comments here and tell us how God has been showing up and showing out in your life. God is good and we want to rejoice with you!
There’s something on you…you know…it’s the blessing!
