“Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what He hath done for my soul” (Psalm 66:16). When was the last time you told someone else what the Lord is doing in your life? When did you purposely give praise to God for what He has been teaching you through the Word of God? Or the last time you shared with someone else something you heard in a good sermon? Or you shared the words that drove deep into your heart from a good song? When was the last time you stood for your God (even among believers who might be caught up in all the “cute” spiritual issues of our day) and testified about the greatness of your God. When was the last time you were so thrilled with what God has been doing in you that you “had to” share it with someone else?
I feel sorry for God … He does all these wonderful things for His children – including providing for needs; giving heavenly wisdom for earthly trials; chastening us when we step out of line; providing health and provision for us to live and succeed … and what does He hear in return from us? Silence, many times. Today would be a good day for we who are believers to stand up wherever we are and tell people that we have an incredible God!
If you haven’t noticed, the world we are living in is a confused mess right now. The finances most people coveted and built their life to attain and fleeing away from them without any plans to return. Cancer, heart conditions, leukemia, etc. are on the rise, not the decline (even with all our research and discoveries). The political situations in most countries are filled with unrest and violence. The hope for most people in good coming in the future is evaporating right before our eyes. What a perfect time to stand up and declare that there is a God in Heaven with the answers to the deep needs in the soul of men today!
That word, “declare” means to write down, to announce, to make known, and to celebrate. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone telling them about how great your God is? When was the last time you announced on your FaceBook that you loved God and told what He had been doing for you? When was the last time you let everyone know that you have an allegiance to the King of all kings? When was the last time you actually celebrated the fact that you were a Christian and stopped trying to hide it? God is looking for Christians who will stand and declare Him to this lost and dying world. STAND AND DECLARE TODAY!
