We cannot limit the Holy Spirit by deciding who or who may not need a word from God. We may not feel comfortable talking to certain people, or we may feel it is putting our “business in the street” if we tell our story. We may even feel ashamed. We may be scared that we will be laughed at or talked about. But guess what, so was Jesus. This right here is for somebody! If God was with you in the storm, and He brought you out, you better tell somebody! He blocked the enemy from destroying you so you could be a living testimony. Not to show what you did to survive, but what He did to save you. You get to tell your story, and God gets the glory. Sharing your personal testimony is a way to share the gospel with others. It shows how God changes lives. It shows how God can change situations and circumstances if we wait on Him. Because we know God loves us all the same, your story gives hope that if He did it for you, He will do it for me. Hope then gives strength to hold on. Somebody needs to hear from you to know that they just need to hold on, to not give up, to keep the faith, and that God is working it out! We must not let fear keep us from allowing God to use us. God will tell you when to tell your story and who to tell it too. You may or may not be an author, and your story might not be for everybody. But God knows who needs to hear it, and He will make sure the people who need to hear it is in the right place at the right time. We must be obedient when the Holy Spirit says the time is now. We must let the Holy Spirit speak through us. We are to send God’s Word into lives by faith and trusting the Holy Spirit to do the teaching and imparting. The Lord promised to put His laws in our minds and write them on our hearts. We as believers know His requirements and feel the conviction of the Holy Spirit when we do not meet them. God said all shall know him, from the least to the greatest. I am so thankful that I know Him, and I am committed to allowing the Holy Spirit to use and direct me to bring souls into the family of Christ. I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ! I cannot keep the goodness of the Lord to myself!!! Love and Blessings…
