How you live your life is a testimony of what you believe about God.– Henry Blackaby.
A definite fact is that Jesus Christ will come again. No one knows the hour except the Heavenly Father. And when that time comes we must all be ready to give an account of our life testimonies.
Today’s devotional reading is from the Book of Revelation 20:4. Please, read our recent devotional from the Book of Proverbs 2:8: Pursue Justice And Watch Your Ways
The saints’ testimony
Martyrs who died for Christ’s sake and the Word of God will reign with Him for a thousand years. Their life testimonies are evident in the scriptures and Christian history. The Apostle John wrote, I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God…, they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
There are lots of men of God in the Bible that have lived out their testimonies in obedience to God’s will and for the sake of Jesus Christ’s Gospel. They are reminders for us to continuously live our lives in the Spirit that we, too, can be a testimony of Christ’s love to others.
What is your testimony?
Have you thought about what testimony you will leave when you depart from this earth? I bet all that comes to your mind are the good things you have done for others, or the career achievement you received. But let us go deeper than the superficial things you have done. All our accounts will be laid down and reviewed by the Giver of Life when we face Him on our last day. Are you ready to see Him? Have you accomplish your purpose in accordance with his will or you have lived your life on your terms?
Jesus said to a man with a demon after he had healed him, “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” (Luke 8:39). Following what Jesus said, we should declare to others, in actions and speech, what God has done for us. Let us have the same conviction as Paul when he wrote, For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16).
This is the time for your journaling. Reflect on these questions. Ask the Holy Spirit to test your faith and your walk with Christ.
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? — 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV.

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
The Lord’s Prayer: Matthew 6:9-13
