    The brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea. When they arrived, they went into the Jewish synagogue. Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things wer...

    When David and his men came to the city, behold, it was burned with fire; and their wives, their sons, and their daughters were taken captive. Then David and the people who were with him lifted up their voice and wept until they had no more power to weep. David's two wives were taken captive, Ahinoa...

Your Testimony

  • Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. 1Pet. 4:12 ESV

    I have a testimony that I share sometimes where the Lord gave me a horrible job in a plant polishing brass and sweeping the floor. Within a year, I was the manager and everyone that worked there was saved. When I went to church, I filled my entire row with guests. The pastor loved me. If I had not lost my previous job I would not have this testimony.

    Unless a test comes, there is no testimony. Testimony, witness, a matter of fact, are things that come from our experience. These are the things you can stand on when the going gets tough. Things that you hear from others help, but the things that you have lived are your testimony and will help you, and others.

    When you look at what Jesus has already brought you through, you know that He will bring you through this as well. Just as David killed the lion, the bear and was now ready for Goliath, the Lord will turn your test into a testimony. The things that you now suffer will work out for your own good in due time.
