2019 - SATURDAY 19 JANUARY WHAT A TESTIMONY Psalm 40:10 I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth From the great assembly. When crafting your testimony of God’s work in your life - here are five planks to build a platform of praise. 1. YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS Nothing declares God more than a person who knows they are in right standing with God - through Jesus Christ. Righteousness is the mystery of godliness - Christ in you. 2. YOUR FAITHFULNESS The faithfulness of God is from everlasting to everlasting. When you are faithful - you declare God is faithful. He never fails. 3. YOUR SALVATION Absolute joy, is the best way to show your salvation. Redeemed from the pit. Saved from eternal hell. Set free from bondage. He whom the Son sets free - is free indeed. Living in joy - declares your salvation. 4. YOUR LOVINGKINDNESS The favour of God upon our lives- reveals His loving kindness. His loving kindness is better than life. To know favour - is to show favour. 5. YOUR TRUTH To find truth - is to find the way of life. A passion for the truth finds the One who is truth. His word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. When you live by His truth - you reveal His will and purpose. USE THE NAME OF JESUS OFTEN IN YOUR DAILY CONVERSATIONS

2019 - FRIDAY 18 JANUARY A GOOD REPORT Proverbs 15:30 The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, And a good report makes the bones healthy. Yesterday I was discharged from hospital after a week of tests and treatments for a blood cancer. The doctor was amazed that the final tests revealed a much lower count in my blood than he had expected. He gave me a good report although couched in professional concern that more treatment must be undertaken. I am convinced that his good report was the outcome of you and I praying and declaring our good report. Our good report caused the bones to respond to the power of God. THREE GOOD REPORT VEHICLES PRAYER When you pray use scripture to remind the Lord of His good promises. Remember - when you pray you get God’s attention. Don’t pray your problem - pray His promise. PRAISE Headphones on - and worship songs up loud. Sing along and raise the praise. Prayer gets God’s attention - but praise enthrones Him in your circumstance. PROPHECY Say it out loud. Every encouraging report - declare it. Don’t keep it a secret. Speak to the bones. When you prophesy you get the attention of your world and it has to line up with the word of the Lord. Prophecy speaks God’s promises to your dry bones. Creation is waiting to conform to the will of God - so declare it. Make no mistake about it - their good report - follows your good report.
