The Power of a Testimony

Transcript

Hi, I am Jenny Weaver from Jenny Weaver Worships and welcome to God Today.  Today I want to talk to you about the power of a testimony. All of us have something that God has done in our lives.  I want to share with you, really quickly, the things God has done in my life.

 

When I was about 13 years old, I began to severely cut my wrists.  I was battling with terrible depression. At 13 years old, I wanted to kill myself.  I actually began to be so rebellious. I rebelled against my mother, my father. I had a spirit of murder that came upon my life.  I wanted to actually take my mother’s life. That got the door opened to so many other demonic things in my life. I got into witchcraft, I studied the religion of Wiccan and I became a witch.  I also began into full drugs, I was a full drug addict for about 9 years. I was homeless at 17 years old. I lived in a life of rejection, abandonment, bitterness, unforgiveness. I hated everybody.  I was alone, I was miserable, and I was broken in every area.

 

For about 9 years, I went through this life.  I cried out to God one day. I was at my lowest point.  I had become pregnant, I had not eaten in 5 days, I had not slept in days.  I had a spirit if insanity that hit my life where I would actually hide under beds for days thinking that demons were going to rip me apart.  At my lowest point, I cried out to God. I didn’t have a very eloquent prayer. I didn’t know fancy words. All I did was scream from my gut. I screamed three words: “God, help me!”

 

When I screamed those three words, and I surrendered to God, I didn’t feel goosebumps.  I didn’t see lightning flash or an angel appear. But, I did feel the peace of God. The Lord ripped me out of that situation.  I was able to get care for my daughter, I was able to get my life cleaned up. He has completely turned my life around. That was about 10 years ago.  Now I travel and I minister to people. I have seen countless numbers of people get delivered. That could be you right there. It doesn’t matter if you have been going to church for 20 years or if you just now heard about Jesus.  God wants you to understand that He will save you. If you are watching this and you have a testimony, I want to encourage you to begin to share your testimony.

 

When I began to share my testimony on facebook, I can’t even tell you the 100s of 1,000s of people that have seen my testimony now and have given their lives to Jesus, or felt that fire coming back to their life where they had grown cold.  You know, God will use something simple like my brokenness to minister to somebody that needs healing. There is power in your testimony. Don’t let the devil convince you that you have done too much, it is embarrassing, you will bring shame on your family.  He loves to lie. Say this with me, “The devil is a liar.” Today, share your testimony. It is going to encourage somebody. Even if you are just sharing with somebody in the grocery store, saying, “God did so much for me. He gave me my hope back. I know He can give you your hope back as well.”  You never know where your story is going to go. You never know what lives you are going to touch. So share it. I am Jenny Weaver and this is God Today.
