Your testimony has a way of breathing life into someone who has given up on their life. The MSG paraphrase of Psalm 105:1-2 hits the nail on the spiritual head and it reads; “Thank GOD! Pray to him by name! Tell everyone you meet what he has done! Sing him songs, belt out hymns, translate his wonders into music! Honor his holy name with Hallelujahs, you who seek GOD. Live a happy life! Keep your eyes open for GOD, watch for his works; be alert for signs of his presence. Remember the world of wonders he has made, his miracles, and the verdicts he’s rendered— O seed of Abraham, his servant, O child of Jacob, his chosen.” There are so many things that encumber our focus in our independent worlds that we often forget we are God’s chosen people (1 Peter 2:9) and that He has given us plenty of reasons to praise His name. It really boils down to this perspective—Life isn’t all bad because God is always good! Everyone should have at least one hallelujah in their spirit and with the leading of the Holy Spirit should be wiling to share that testimony with others that might be bogged down in life’s various disappointments and challenges. Proverbs 27:17 says, “Iron sharpens iron so one person sharpens another.” Each of us have testimony and a praise that can help change the trajectory of someone’s life. God wants us to remember the things He has done in our lives and He wants us to share those things with others at the right time. So don’t muzzel your praise to God and don’t be afraid to share a life-breathing word of encouragement to someone who is in need of spiritual resuscitation and enlightenment!
