TOPIC: TESTIMONIES – BOOSTERS OF FAITH
36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
37 For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:36-37, KJV
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Testimonies are boosters of faith. Testimonies fertilize and provoke belief
It has been established that testimonies are boosters of faith. Testimonies fertilize and provoke belief.
For example, it was a testimony that settled the mind of Mary when she was told by an angel that as a virgin, she would bring forth a child. Initially, she doubted God’s Word and said, “How shall this be?” Then the angel said,
And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.
It was a testimony that settled Mary’s confusion.
When David wanted to confront Goliath, Saul told him, “You are not able to confront this man. This is a man of war from his youth. You are just a little boy”. Then a testimony from the mouth of David settled Saul’s unbelief.
1 Samuel 17:32, 34-36 showed us how David gave the testimony of how he killed a bear and a lion when he was taking care of his father’s sheep. And David concluded that Goliath would also be killed like the lion and the bear.
When Saul heard this testimony, he was amazed and seemed to have said, “Ah! You mean you have killed a lion before? Go!” David said, “The God who delivered me from the lion and the bear, He will deliver me from this uncircumcised philistine”.
Beloved, I decree that God will give you a testimony that will pull down every Goliath around your life! God will give you a testimony that will change your story and the story of everyone around you, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: Testimonies are boosters of faith. Testimonies fertilize and provoke belief.
- Pay attention to the Acts of God (testimonies) shared in church.
- Rehearse what God had done in your life and in the lives of others and build your faith.
PRAYER: Lord, thank You for Your good acts and testimonies in my life. I receive the grace to boost my faith from Your wondrous acts, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Exodus 1-5
REFLECTION: Encounters with God and His Word are the precursors of testimonies. If you don’t run out of encounters, you don’t run out of testimonies.
