DON’T HOLD BACK!
When God changes your life, and frees you from sin, tell somebody! Don’t hold back! Tell others about the grace and mercy of God! I have said, on more than one occasion, that testimonies give glory to God. They serve as a source of strength for others who may be going through something similar. It is encouraging to see how the Lord has brought you through. Don’t hold back, shout out loud!! Don’t be ashamed of the goodness of the Lord. Let others know about the God we serve. He is worthy to be praised! Speak from your heart and express to your family, your friends, and to all those that you meet about the power of God who can save you, heal you, strengthen you, and give you joy! Some people say that I am animated, but I use every ounce of energy within me to declare that God is great and greatly to be praised!!! In Psalm 107:2, we find these words:
“Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out! Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies.”
The psalmist says if the Lord has redeemed you, then you should speak out loud and clear, telling others how God has rescued you from your enemies. He begins the Psalm by giving thanks to the Lord for His goodness and His faithfulness. The psalmist declares that he cried to the Lord when he was in trouble, and the Lord saved him. His word is true! We should all be like the psalmist and give thanks to God, knowing what God has done for us. Just think of His goodness, then tell somebody! And don’t hold back!
