In Luke 8:39 Jesus tells a man who he had just casted out many devils to “return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee.”
Do you go home after church telling about the goodness of the Lord? God has been good to you and I so why can’t we speak about his goodness to those that are in our house? Everything else is talked in our homes so I believe we need to start talking about what Jesus has done and is about to do in our lives.
Every day we hear or get some sort of bad news to the point that it makes you want to walk around with your hands over your ears to protect them from anymore bad news. Jesus healed this man and told him to go and tell his house and anybody that would listen. When you testify on the goodness of Jesus to others, it encourages them to hang in there and keep trusting that the Lord will bring them through.
What are you talking about on Monday mornings with your co-workers? You should not be ashamed to tell others what God has done for you and your family. If someone does not want to listen to your testimony, then that’s cool, just find you someone that will, and speak about how Jesus kept you when you wanted to give up; speak about how he made a way when you thought there was no way; speak about how he saved you just in the nick of time. The hand of God has been over us whether we want to admit it or not, and he deserves the praise and the honor for it all. Don’t be afraid to share how God stepped into your personal storm and calmed you when you were about to jump ship and give up on life.
This man was full of devils that had he bound for years, he had been through some things which gave him the right to testify on what Jesus had done. There is a time and place that God will set up for you to share your personal testimony on what he has done in your life. These times will come in your home, they will come with your friends, and they will come with your co-workers so don’t miss your chance. Stand up and be not ashamed of your God because he has been so so good to us saints.
