Thought: “What will my tears, which Jesus will be putting into His bottle for me consist of?”
“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” Revelation 12:11a
Sharing your testimony is three-fold story. It is your heart being laid wide open and truth flowing out of the center of the root, the core coming out into the light, being set free for the first time. A close friend told me recently, our story is three-fold. As we talked, the Lord revealed important truths. It is Jesus’ blood that He already shed for us and thru His blood we have the Victory, we just have to take the risk and share our secret, be transparent with our brother/sister and learn how to walk in vulnerability. Being honest is what it is all about. When we share from our heart, it is freeing. We no longer are keeping our secret shoved deep inside, giving the enemy room to keep us bound. When we confess to one another our true selves and share our heart from deep inside where our hurt lies, our heart becomes lighter and we begin to walk in the freedom the Lord has for us. It is Jesus blood that gives us our victory. We just need to do what is necessary to claim it. Emotional healing from past trauma is not easy; yet finding forgiveness within God’s Grace and finding forgiveness in abortion is imperative. It is freeing and Healing His Way, Jesus’s way, is the only way in finding Self-Worth and becoming who God crested you to be.
The Word is, the Word of God and what is says about what Jesus came to do and the freedom He came to give us. It is about the forgiveness He gives us, the love He has for us and the purpose He has for our pain. We are not alone in this journey. Jesus walks this journey with us, guiding our steps and is ready to set us free. Our pain that we experienced is not in vain, it will be used for God’s glory. Though it is hard to see at the time while going through it, or thinking back to our past and having to relive it, so Jesus can begin to heal those places of hurt in our heart; know that our experiences will be used to help others heal and be shown how to walk their journey of healing also.
Their testimony is our story, our walk of healing, our journey to freedom, our claiming the victory that is waiting for us. It is us shedding hope to others that they too can begin to feel lighter in their heart, walk back to a painful past to walk forward to a fulfilled future; being used by our Heavenly Father to bring healing and hope to the helpless, to set the captives free that the enemy of their soul has kept bound. Our stories are all different, yet each one is significant in itself. Though we lived through it, survived the suffering, and have a wounded heart, God comes along and prepares our plans for a new beginning, a fresh start, a new life walking with Him in His presence. Though we may not be able to see the full plan Jesus has prepared for us, trust that He is walking this apprehensive, reluctant, perplexing journey with us and the Lord will be there to help keep us on the new path He has set before us. Walking in freedom with no chains from the past encompassing our heart, is for everyone. Jesus came to set the captives free, He came to heal the broken-hearted. Allow Him to dig deep and go into your heart where the ongoing agonizing pain your past is kept guarded, give Him your heart and feel the permanent peaceful healing He longs to give you. Share from your heart and reach for the victory. The Lord is waiting on you, are you ready to open up and share?
JHOP, Justice House of Prayer, an Intercessory Prayer Ministry based in Washington, D.C. has two strategies: a prayer room for interceding and contending for government officials and persistent public intercession in front of the Supreme Court building. JHOP launched Bound 4LIFE, an international, chapter-based movement that advocates for the ending of abortion. The House of Prayer takes seriously the commission to pray for governmental leaders and the political causes at hand. JHOP’s main purpose is to see America return to righteous rule and to understand that the name of Jesus unlocks the real authority in our nation.
Maranatha Covert is one of the missionaries, an ordained pastor, and on staff full-time at JHOP. She is over all of the communications for JHOP DC & Bound4Life. Maranatha is looking for people to come along side her and partner financially with her. This will enable her to continue the call the Lord has given and the mandate she has said “yes” to. If you would like to give a one time gift, that would be truly appreciated. I am currently partnering with Maranatha by donating 10% of all book sales to help support her.
