What is testimony?
Testimony is a statement or declaration of a witness under oath or affirmation, usually in court. It is an evidence in support of a fact or statement; proof.
In faith it is an open declaration or profession, as of faith. Usually, testimonies is the precepts of God. God lives in Praises.
Given testimony or bear witness to what God has done for you brings gladness to Him and it is an application for more. If you give your testimony on one thing God has done for you, be ready to receive another miracle.
Testimonies must accompany Miracles. Why is Testimony important.
Testimony is so important that God commanded Moses to build an ark of testimony and keep his unusual acts or miracles inside it.
As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept. And the children of Israel ate manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land; they ate manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan. (Exodus 16:34-35 NKJV).
And you shall put into the ark the Testimony which I will give you. (Exodus 25:16 NKJV). You shall put the mercy seat upon the ark of the Testimony in the Most Holy. (Exodus 26:34 NKJV)
They ate manna for 40 Years and non of the suffered diabetes, sickness from eating manna. This testimony was kept in the ark of Testimonies and is written down in the Bible and that is why we are reading about it today.
One of God favorite servant was King David. God said, David is a man after my hearts. Why did God favor David to the point of establishing an everlasting covenant with him?
Is King David the most Holy, Righteous person or was he a sinner, an adulterous man and a man that kill the husband of Barsheba in other To cover his sins? Why? Why my father? Why did you say David is a man after my hearts? Why did God establish everlasting Covenant with David?
Hear what God said, in Psalm 89:20-29
“I have found My servant David; With My holy oil I have anointed him, With whom My hand shall be established; Also My arm shall strengthen him. The enemy shall not outwit him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him. I will beat down his foes before his face, And plague those who hate him. “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, And in My name his horn shall be exalted. Also I will set his hand over the sea, And his right hand over the rivers. He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’ Also I will make him My firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth. My mercy I will keep for him forever, And My covenant shall stand firm with him. His seed also I will make to endure forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.”
Psalms 89:20-29 NKJV
Why Did God Love David So much?
King David loves to give testimony about God goodness. He was not ashamed to give praises and testimony about his God. When God forgive him. He gives testimonies. When God show him mercy, He gives Testimonies and when God bless him, He gives testimonies
When God rebuke him, he praise him? When Heal him, He gives testimonies. When he suffered the consequences of his actions, he praises God.
Now put yourself in God’s position as a father or as a mother. You have a son that alway talk good things about you. When you buy him things he gives testimonies. When you discipline him, he thank you and praise your name. He is alway happy to have a parent. What would you do for such an appreciative son or daughter? You will Love and trust such son or daughter. You will write the name of that son or daughter in your WILL.
