For those of you who may be wondering what your story is, your story is your testimony. It's an open acknowledgement or some sort of public profession about your spiritual experiences that you've encountered throughout your journey in life. It is one of the most powerful devices that I believe we have all been blessed with throughout our lives.
In the book of John, it talks about a woman who shares her story and the powerful impact that it has on her community.
39 Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the woman’s testimony, “He told me everything I ever did.” 40 So when the Samaritans came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. 41 And because of his words many more became believers. 42 They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world” (John 39-42 NIV).
Your story has the power to save souls. Your story has the power to ignite someones relationship with God. Your story is what will birth belief in barren situations. Your story is what will set the atmosphere for God to perform a miracle. Your story is what will break chains. Your story is what will revive. Your story is the power God gives you to influence a specific body of people. Your story is too important to not be told. This month, I believe that God is calling you to put down your water jar (whatever could potentially be in the way or hold you back) like the woman, so you can go out and share your story.
We honor you for being Lord over our lives. Thank you for your goodness, your faithfulness, your unmerited grace and your loving kindness. Thank you for purpose, value and uniqueness through our stories. We pray that you bless us with courage, wisdom, and strength to go out and tell our stories throughout this month. Use us as yielded vessels to be a blessing to others as we share our testimonies. Let your light be projected through us so that you may always get the glory. Have your way through every experience that we encounter in life. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
