From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me, but they have never defeated me (Psalm 129:2 NLT).
Beloved, one of the songs I couldn’t get enough off in the past few days is ‘You made a way’ by Travis Greene with lyrics that says… “You made a way… When our backs were against the wall… And it looked as if it was over… You made a way… And we’re standing here… Only because you made a way… You move mountains… You cause walls to fall… With your power… You perform miracles… There is nothing that’s impossible… And we’re standing here… Only because you made a way…”
Beloved, that’s the testimony… We’re standing here… Only because You made a way…
Like I said, I couldn’t get enough of this song and yesterday, during my morning devotion, I came across our feature text. Immediately, I remembered the testimony I shared with friends and family this week about how the enemy has come after me right from my youth but has not prevailed. I do have a testimony and I’ve been led in this past week to share it even though many of you that follow my postings may already know.
Beloved, I’m only alive by the grace of God. In my life, I’ve survived many near death experiences. The first was a motorcycle accident at age 3 plus years old. The second was a ghastly motor vehicle accident where the bus I was in ran into a stationary bus. Only 2 of us survived out of all the passengers in the bus. I was gone until the Lord woke me up. The third was a fire incident where I was trap in a building with no fire exit. The fourth was a blood clot in my lungs and I was told by the doctor that if I hadn’t come to the hospital when I did…
And then, there are probably many more I don’t know about. I’ve had blood pressure readings of 210/110 plus where the doctor I went to see on my way back from work looked at me and said someone like you shouldn’t be walking around. I remember when my ex-husband left me and I was crying like a baby, the Lord spoke to me through a MOG and this is what He said “haven’t I saved your life from death so many times?”
Beloved, even in the past one week, the enemy has tried several times but for the Lord. The Voice translation of our feature text says…This is not the first time my enemies assaulted me; they have attacked me since I was young, and yet they have not been able to overpower me.
Beloved, why am I sharing this? it is because we are in the season where the enemy wants to remind you of all your storms and struggles but you have got to be intentional and go over your testimonies. Like the Bible says… And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony (Revelation 12:11 NLT).
Don’t keep quiet. Testify!
