It's Time to Testify

This week, I’ve been fighting an upper respiratory virus. I have been tested for Covid-19, but am still waiting on the results. It’s been quite the week, but I can truly say that today finds me burning with a passion to encourage people and to call out what the Lord is doing right now. A passion to point people to Him. This morning in my prayer time I was crying out to the Lord for a word, and this is what He gave me to pass on to my fellow believers.

I am the Lion of Judah. I am roaring now over my people. I am calling them to come out from their hiding. This is a set up. I have been setting up social media and the internet for just such a time as this. I want my people to flood the internet. Their mission is one of hope and truth. They are to flood the internet with their testimonies. They are to tell the truth about what I have done in their lives. There’s power in testimony, and it is time for my people to come out of hiding. My people carry hope the world is desperate for. The people of the world are slaves to fear, imprisoned by anxiety. But my children have a hope and a peace that the world wants. It is time for my children to tell the truth about the peace they have, the hope they have. I want to see my children’s testimonies light up the internet.

I have strategically placed my children in this generation for such a time as this. As they begin to share their personal testimonies online, their friends and family members will listen with a new softness they would not have had before. Everybody is looking for a lifeline at this time; my people are going to give them one.

Some of my people may feel their testimony is “boring”. Every testimony is precious to me. My Spirit will accompany every testimony, however seemingly small or insignificant. There will be a special grace on testimonies during this time. My people’s words will be empowered far beyond their own capability. I want them to know and understand that I am God and there is no other. I save. I redeem. I give hope to the hopeless and bring light to the darkness. Nothing is too difficult for me. The peace I give is unlike anything world has to offer. And right now, the world is desperate for peace.

Children, come out! I am empowering you now to be bold and honest. There are people in your sphere of influence that need to hear your testimony. Talk about how I’ve saved you. Talk about how I’ve been faithful. Talk about the hope and peace I give you. Talk about how you no longer need to fear anything. Children, you do not need to be eloquent or educated for this. But I do want my kids to ask my Spirit to direct their words. I will do it. I will help you know what to say and I will empower your message beyond what you can imagine.

The world is hungry and hurting. They are hungry for a Savior. They are desperate for hope. You have hope. Tell them why.

10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
    “and my servant whom I have chosen,
so that you may know and believe me
    and understand that I am he.
Before me no god was formed,
    nor will there be one after me.
11 I, even I, am the Lord,
    and apart from me there is no savior.
12 I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—
    I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God.

Isaiah 43:10-12
