and with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. [acts 4:33]
many of us readily embrace God’s love and mercy, but how often do we forget that God is infinitely powerful? as believers, we have no reason to walk in fear, shame or defeat. we are bought and redeemed by the immense power that only God could possess. we must not look at a troubled world and see an insurmountable challenge, but rather an opportunity for the power of God to work in miraculous ways. ephesians 3:20 reminds us that God “is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us”. the power that created the vast universe works in us!
this sacred, holy, eternal power is what gives our testimony the ability to change lives. revelation 12:11 reminds us that believers will defeat evil “by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” your story is not just another story. it is the very mechanism by which God is bringing people unto himself, working miracles, and building his church. never discount what God is doing in your life, knowing that the God of miracles is able to do the impossible.
there is absolutely nothing that compares to God’s grace. there is power in knowing that our testimony is fueled by the fact that we did nothing to earn God’s salvation. in fact, we did everything to not deserve it!
he chooses to love us.
he chooses to give us freedom in all circumstances.
he chooses to work in and through us.
he chooses to forgive and empower us.
and he chooses to redeem us, make us holy, and use our testimony to glorify himself.
in response, let us choose to live fully immersed in his great grace, and experience the Holy Spirit moving through us just as he did among early believers.
