(Tell Everyone How Good God Has Been To You)
TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 103:1-3
“Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases”
David was never ashamed or afraid to express his gratitude to the Lord openly. Many times he expressed his gratitude in songs, psalms and dance. On one occasion, he danced and leaped for joy before the Lord so much that his wife despised him, thinking he was undignified for praising God (2 Samuel 6:16). What a heart he had. No wonder he lived such a great life.
The greatest and most successful people are grateful people. Your ability to express gratitude is your key to greatness. One of the ways to express your appreciation to the Lord is to testify of His goodness in your life. You must learn to express your gratitude to the Lord openly by testifying. The Lord Jesus said to the man He healed of demonic oppression, “…Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you” (Mark 5:19). That was what he did. The Bible tells us that those that heard his story marvelled (Mark 5:20).
So, I get amazed at those who find it difficult to testify of the Lord’s goodness. You can’t retain your miracle until you learn to testify. In fact, your testimony is the evidence of the Lord’s goodness and kindness in your life. The Lord is good and kind to all people. He doesn’t discriminate. He came for the sick, the sinner, the despondent and the destitute. The Bible says God forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases; not some but ALL. They might announce a new disease tomorrow, but the Bible says He has already healed it. If you trust upon His Name, you’ll never be ashamed. He loves you in spite of your actions; His thoughts about you are good (Jeremiah 29:11). Has the Lord healed you? Then tell about it! Some people may never know God is a Healer until they hear your story.
Psalm 145:5; Romans 1:16
Father, I thank you for your goodness in my life. You’ve done great things for me and have made me a wonder to my world. I will not keep back what you’ve done for me but I will shout it out loud so that the world can know you are good. Amen.
