Power Of Stories And Testimonies

Last updated on:

As you will see in reading the testimonies in this section of our site, we are big believers in sharing our personal stories and testimonies of God supernaturally showing Himself in any way, shape, or form.

I believe these God-stories are extremely powerful and they can all help us continue to build up our own personal faith levels in the Lord. These kinds of good testimonies really show how active God can really become in our daily lives if we will allow Him to come in and start to work with us in a much deeper and stronger way.

I am sure many of you have had some kind of supernatural activity with God where He has shown Himself to you in some type of dramatic way – whether it be to help get you out of dire situation that you may have fallen into, or to answer a direct prayer for a specific need.

What I have personally found through actual experience is that God really does want to become very active in your daily life, and there are quite a few times He will show Himself to you in some kind of supernatural way. However, I have also found out that many Christians are really scared of any kind of supernatural activity from God and they would prefer to keep Him at a safe distance from them.

It’s one thing to know that God the Father is in heaven and can hear our prayers and control things at a distance. However, it’s quite another thing to have God get very close to you with some kind of supernatural activity, whether it be a vision, dream, healing, or some kind of prophecy.

As you can tell from reading some of our articles in this section, myself and quite a few of my friends have had some incredible supernatural activity from God in reference to some deliverance situations where God really did show up in a mighty supernatural way to deliver some of these people out of some very dire situations.

To those of you who want to tread into these kinds of deeper waters with the Lord and are not afraid of Him, I believe you will find these stories and testimonies to be very uplifting and encouraging. When you read about God helping someone else out in some kind of supernatural way, it will help build up your own personal faith levels even further because you will come to the conclusion that if God can supernaturally move to help someone else out, then He can also do the exact same thing for you since the Bible tells us that He is no respecter of persons.

The Bible says your faith is built up by hearing the Word of God. And when you read about these kinds of dramatic stories and testimonies, you are actually hearing about them, which in turn will help build up your own personal faith levels with the Lord.

As I always do, I will end this short article with some extremely powerful Scripture verses to back up my arguments that God really does want us sharing these kinds of supernatural stories with others who will feed off them. He wants us recording them, remembering them, and sharing them with others who will want to hear about them.

Now here are some very powerful Scripture verses backing up my argument that God really does want us sharing these kinds of stories with others who are open to receiving them.

The Scripture Verses

1.  This first verse tells us that God has made His wondrous works to be remembered! And the best way to attempt to remember something is to actually record it shortly after it has occurred. I personally keep a God Journal logging every type of meaningful activity that I get from the Lord.

I do not record every little thing that may happen with Him, but I will record the medium to heavier things that will make for a good story or a good teaching tool to help others out in their own personal walks with the Lord.

There is no way most of us can remember all of the things that God will do once He starts to become very active in our life. By logging these types of meaningful experiences down in some type of journal, you will have something right at your fingertips that you can share with others to help build up their own personal faith levels after they initially get saved.

This kind of God journal will also help you get through any storm clouds that may come your way in this life. By going back and remembering all of the things that God has done for you in your past will really help you get through whatever your present predicament may be. If God helped to deliver you out of something three years ago, then He will also help deliver you out of any present storm cloud that may have come your way.

The Bible says that God does not change. If He has helped you in your past, then He will continue to help and preserve you in your present and in your future. By going back and seeing what God has done for you in your past will help keep your faith and confidence levels operating at a higher level with Him. All of your past supernatural activities with God will help serve as real good faith boosters when you may need them for any kind of present storm cloud.

Here is the verse. It is only a one line long, but I feel a very powerful statement is being made by the Lord to all of us.

“He has made His wonderful works to be REMEMBERED …” (Psalm 111:4).

If this verse is telling us that God wants His wonderful works to be remembered, then the next set of verses are going to tell you what He will then want you to do with these remembered works – and that is to share them with others.

2.  This next verse talks about God making a comment that His people were not “mindful” of the wonders that He had done among them. Being mindful means that you really cherish, think about, meditate on, record, and share with others what God may have done with you by way of any type of “wonderful work.”

One of the secrets to getting God to become more supernaturally involved in your life is to be very mindful and really cherish and appreciate it when He does do something rather dramatic for you. In my own God journal, I not only record what He does for me personally, but I also record what He does for some of my other close friends who I am sharing my walk with.

This way, I not only learn from what He is personally doing with me, but I am also learning other things about God from what He is doing with my other friends.

Here is the verse. Again, it is only one sentence long, but a lot is being said in this one sentence.

“They refused to obey, and they were not mindful of Your wonders that You did among them.” (Nehemiah 9:17).

3.  This next verse gets right to the heart of this matter. It specifically talks about speaking about the glory of God, and to talk about and to make known to others any of His mighty acts.

“They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and talk of Your power, to make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of His kingdom.” (Psalm 145:11-12)

Notice that it says we are “to make known to the sons of men His mighty acts.” The only way that you can make known to others what some of God’s mighty acts are is to actually tell them about it. Again, this is another one of the main reasons we have started up this kind of website – to share our own personal testimonies with you so you can see how far God can really go with you in this supernatural realm.

4.  This next verse also drives home the point about making God’s deeds known to others and to talk about all of His wondrous works.

“Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him … Talk of all His wondrous works! … Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders and the judgments of His mouth …” (1 Chronicles 16:8-12)

Notice the specific wording in that we are to “make known His deeds,” that we are to “talk” of all His wondrous works, and that we are to “remember” what He has done for us.

You can really tell by how strong the Lord is wording these kinds of verses the importance that He is placing on that we be open to sharing some of these kinds of God stories and testimonies with others. These types of stories and testimonies also have the power and the ability to draw nonbelievers into eternal salvation through Jesus.

5.  Here is another powerful verse telling us to speak about the might of God’s awesome acts and to declare His great goodness.

“Men shall speak of the might of Your awesome acts, and I will declare Your greatness. They shall utter the memory of Your great goodness.” (Psalm 145:6-7)

Jesus has already told us that if we carry His light, that we are not to let His light hide underneath the tables. We are to let His light shine forth so that others may see exactly what it is that makes us so different from the rest of the world. And one of the ways that you can let His light shine through you is by being willing to talk about and share some of your own powerful stories and testimonies that you may already have in the Lord.

Many nonbelievers are getting their heads knocked off in the arena of life. By being willing to share your light, your testimonies, and your knowledge in the Lord with some of these nonbelievers may be the difference as to whether or not they ever accept Jesus and His gift of eternal salvation in this life.

6.  This next verse tells us that we should not be afraid or ashamed to speak about God even to kings, or to those who are in any kind of authority.

“I will speak of Your testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.” (Psalm 119:46)

If God is telling us that we are not to even hold back on those who may be in power and authority over us – then you can really tell that He is pulling out all of the stops in an effort to try and get as many people saved as He possibly can before they die and cross over.

We are to have no fear of any man, no matter who they may be – and we are to be bold as lions when letting His light shine through us.

7.  Though all of the above verses tell us not to be afraid to talk about the Lord and what He may have done personally for us – this next verse also gives us a solemn warning in that we are to be very careful who we share these kinds of God-stories with.

This next verse specifically tells us not to give what is holy to the dogs. This verse tells us two things will happen if we do. First, they will just trample under their feet what you have just shared or given to them. Second, they will then turn around and personally tear you to pieces for sharing this with them.

I believe the word “dogs” are referring to unbelievers who are not open in any way, shape or form from hearing anything about the Lord in their present situation. They are full of doubt, ridicule, and have very judgmental and critical spirits.

I have also found this to be true with quite a few Christians. Many Christians are not operating and walking in a real full surrender with the Lord. They have not established any kind of real personal relationship with Him. As a result, they get very little, if any real supernatural activity from Him in their daily lives. They thus will have a very hard time believing you when you try and tell them one of your God-stories. They think that since none of this kind of supernatural activity ever comes their way from the Lord, that there is no way that you could ever be receiving this kind of supernatural activity from Him.

My advice to you would be to just use your own good, natural, common sense and rely on your leadings from the Holy Spirit as to who you should be sharing these kinds of God-stories with and who to stay away from. Most of the time, you will have a good inner knowing from the Holy Spirit as to who to share these kinds of stories with and who not to share them with.

Now here is the verse giving us this solemn warning:

“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.” (Matthew 7:6)

Conclusion

All of the above Scripture verses are telling us that God really does want us talking about Him and sharing our own personal God-adventures with others. This is why we have chosen to start up this website – not only to give you good articles about God and the Bible – but to also share with you some of the actual stories and testimonies myself and some of my friends have personally had with the Lord.

Many Christians I have met in my life have had very little, if any real supernatural activity from the Lord in their lives. Or if they did, they did not recognize it as coming from the Lord.

I have found that once you open up people’s eyes to the Lord and how active He is really looking to become in their daily lives – then all of a sudden the light bulbs go on and they then start to see that God is really much closer to them than they had ever realized. They then start to see that the gap between them and God can be bridged.

If there is one thing I have personally found out about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit is that They really do want to supernaturally show Themselves to you in a wide variety of ways. They really do want to become much more active in your daily life. But They will only show Themselves to you and become much more active in your daily life only if you really want Them too. This supernatural realm is for seekers only.

To those of you who may be a little scared or skittish of having God supernaturally show Himself to you in any way – the one thing that I can tell you is that when God does start to supernaturally communicate with you in any way, it is simply pure joy and fun. When you start to meet God head on in this supernatural realm, you will find out very quickly that there is nothing to be afraid of when He does start show Himself to you.

Our God is a very loving God and He is truly our one and only real Father. He has nothing but your best interests at heart, and He wants nothing more than to be able to establish a close, intimate, personal relationship with each and everyone of you. And in that close personal relationship that He will want to establish with you will be a desire in Him to want to make direct contact with you and show Himself to you so as to be able to help you along the way in your life’s journey with Him.
