The Supernatural Power Of Testimony
By Fin Sheridan
One of the things that we love doing at CBN Europe is sharing people’s stories. Our production and media team spend time filming and documenting stories from across the UK to share with you so you can hear what God is doing.
Whether it’s Levi’s story of how God is creating a new life for him, or Issy’s story of how God broke through her depression and suicidal thoughts, the stories we hear about how God is changing lives are truly remarkable. It’s hard not be moved when you watch Harry’s salvation story.
One of the reasons that testimonies are so important, and why sharing them is so powerful, is that they have a supernatural power to replicate miracles in the lives of their hearers. Okay, so what does that mean? Well, Revelation 19:10 says that “The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Testimony, recalling what God has done, is connected to what God will do – prophecy! When we share a testimony or story of what God has done in our lives, we are actually proclaiming that what he’s done once, he can do again.
“What He’s done once, He can do again.”
Romans 10:17 says that ‘faith comes by hearing – and hearing by the word about Christ.’ Faith is born in hearts by hearing about Christ and that includes hearing about what he has done for someone else.
When we hear about how he has financially provided for someone, we begin to believe that he could bless us too. When we hear about healing, we are inspired and encouraged to pray for the sick. When someone shares their evangelism experiences that resulted in salvation, we are much more likely to feel the faith and courage to share our faith with others.
So, if you have a story of what God has done in your life, no matter how big or small, here’s 3 next steps for how you can effectively share it and see God multiply it.
- Why not get in touch and see if it’d be a good fit for a CBN Story? Our Production team are on the lookout for stories that we can share online and on TV!
- You can share it with your friends or church? Take to social media and proclaim it far and wide! Your testimony might be the key to someone else seeing a miracle in their life!
- Our friends at The Wall of Answered Prayer are also collecting stories. They’d love to hear yours as they plan to build a landmark dedicated to answered prayer, right here in the UK!
