You have some declaring to do!
“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD. Psalms 118:17 (KJV)
When you could be dead, but God caused you to live, you have some declaring to do. When it’s a miracle that you are here, you have some declaring to do. When you wanted to backslide, but God kept you from going back, you have some declaring to do. There has been a supernatural work in you, and now there must be a supernatural work through you. Your declaring the works of the Lord will cause all around you to know and recognize the power of your God.
To declare in this verse means to inscribe, to recount, and to celebrate. Don’t hold back your declaration of what the Lord has done in your life. Write about it, talk about it, shout about it, and testify to the goodness of your great God! Don’t allow anyone to make you feel as though what He brought you through is too shameful to mention out loud. The only shame is in keeping quiet. If God brought you through it, He wants you to greatly rejoice about it and shout it on the mountain top! The only time we have God’s permission to be rooftop women is when we are boldly declaring what God has said and what He has done (see Matthew 10:27)!
We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony (see Revelation 12:11).
Prayer: Father God, thank You for Your mighty work in me, Your work through me and Your work around me. Help me not be afraid to open up and declare to others what You have done in my life. I pray my testimony touches someone and helps them come to know You for themselves. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
