Daily Devotional – 5/22/14 “Where’s the witness?”


Isn’t it crazy how God will bring us through stuff and we won’t tell nobody? Why has it become hard to be a witness when God has set you free? I don’t understand how you can go through the trial (sickness, disease, addiction, abuse, hurt, etc.,) be found not guilty (by being delivered) and not tell anybody. That’s like the defense attorney standing before the court calling your name and the judge asking, where’s the witness? I just don’t understand. Why has it become so hard to tell somebody about the goodness of the Lord? You do know that you’re the bible to unbelievers, right? You’re the one an unbeliever sees and your life is what they read, so how can you not share? How can you get me to believe that God can heal me if you can’t tell me how He has healed you? How can you make me believe He will love me through my mess if you can’t tell me a little about the mess He loved you through? How can you make me believe He can pick me up if you can’t tell me how He picked you up? Where is the witness? Weren’t you the one who survived that abusive relationship? Weren’t you the one who was healed of cancer? Aren’t you the one with kidney disease yet you’re still living? Aren’t you the one who used to walk but now you own a car? Aren’t you the one who was once homeless but now a homeowner? Weren’t you the one who was in the gang but now you’re preaching God’s word? Weren’t you the one who used to break up marriages but now you’re happy in yours? Weren’t you the one who tried to commit suicide but it didn’t work? Aren’t you the one who was shot but it didn’t claim your life? Weren’t you the one who was given ten years in jail but only did two and now you’re free? Where’s the witness? Hasn’t God been good enough to you to cry out like the song of David in Psalm 22:22, “I will tell of your name to my brothers; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you?” Can you say like Psalm 40:9, “I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; behold, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O LORD?” Where is your witness? When will you tell your story? I don’t know about you but I don’t mind sharing God with you for I’ll scream it from the mountaintops and even from the valley like Isaiah 6:8 says, “Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?” I said, “Here I am. Send me.”” Where’s the witness? Here I am, with my hand on the bible saying, I promise to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth about our God and His wondrous work! Is it easy? No. Is it worth it? Every day!
