The Testimony of Truth

"For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard." - Acts 4:20

"Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent. If we wait until morning light, some punishment will come upon us. Now therefore, come, let us go and tell the king’s household.” - 2 Kings 7:9

When God speaks, He only speaks TRUTH. He cannot lie and cannot speak what is not...He can only speak WHAT IS. There is power in His spoken Words since once He speaks something, it becomes a lasting reality. This was true when He stretched out the universe and said, "Let there be light" and this was also true when He died on the cross and said, "It is finished!"

The disciples witnessed Jesus heal people, calm the raging sea, and raise the dead by simply speaking the Word. So when Peter and John were told not to speak the Name of Jesus, there was no way they could keep silent about Him. They knew that He had risen from the dead and that everything He ever said had come to pass. Now it was time for them to put legs to their faith. They needed to open their mouths and speak what they had seen and heard.

How about you dear saint? Are you convinced in the truth of who Jesus is and what He has done in your life? Are you willing to make known what He has done?

There is someone waiting for you this week to tell them the good news. They don't know how to bring it up but they are waiting to hear the truth that can set them free.

Just like the four lepers who discovered that the camp of the Syrians were abandoned after the supernatural work of the Lord had pushed them out, they realized that this was "a day of good news" and they could no longer keep this to themselves. Their deliverance from death was not meant to be limited to their own lives. God mercifully ended the famine but it was now up to them to break their silence and make it known!

Why would any of us keep such good news all to ourselves? That is an important question to consider. So why don’t we speak up or testify to the truth? Is it a...

  • Fear of Initiation: “I just don’t know how to begin.”

  • Fear of Rejection: “What if people don’t like what I say?”

  • Fear of Limitation: “What if I don’t know what to say?”

  • Fear of Condemnation: “I am not good enough to say what needs to be said.”

These fears do not come from God but from the evil who is deceiving you so that you do not share your testimony of truth that will help others be set free.

But the truth is this beloved brother or sister:

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began" (2 Tim. 1:7-9)



Ask the Lord to show you what personal sacrifices He is calling you to make to do HIS WILL and testify to HIS TRUTH, so that more might hear and know Christ…and what Christ has done for us!
