For several months I’ve wanted to republish my personal testimony because the Lord has given a greater appreciation of how He’s been working throughout my life. A few weeks ago our vicar stressed the significance of the Samaritan woman’s meeting with Jesus lies in the power of personal testimony. Then came some Lion Bites, so here we go…
Fresh insights at last year’s conference in Matlock upon my early life revealed a destiny from my childhood to blog about Jesus Christ’s promised return. I was amazed and re-assured that the grace of God which I didn’t deserve did, in fact, cover me even though I’d been dead against Him – and dead to Him! It was as though ‘the hound of heaven’ had tracked me down and cornered me!
And now in the past week, I’m getting an awakening into how my spiritual rebirth and what I was starting to sense supra-naturally during the 1990s, is now coming into play. Moreover, it’s through re-connecting with the local church that the Lord had put me into and which I’d left when marrying Nina and moving to East Hants!
Therefore, these Lion Bites from Glasgow Prophetic Centre are personally poignant:
THE WORD OF YOUR TESTIMONY (3rd May)
“Your testimonies are so powerful! Whether it’s the story of how you came to know me as your Saviour, or of how I provided for a need you had, I want you to share these testimonies. For my testimonies in you will draw others to me, and your stories of how I work in your life will bring wonder to those who hear them. Will you share them?
“And if you can’t think of any to share, then begin to partner with me and ask me to move in the circumstances of your life. Give me space to work miracles. Place your faith and expectation in me and see what I will do! And when I do it, share what I have done. Share me with those around you and allow them to wonder what I could also do for them.”
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death.
UNCAPPED POTENTIAL (7th May)
“I am uncapping your potential today,” says the Lord.
“There has been a brewing frustration inside many; a sense of ‘there’s more in me than I’m seeing right now and I am able to articulate’. Some of you have felt capped through lies you’ve believed about yourself, words that have been spoken over you or situations out of your control. Today, the Lord says repeatedly, “I am uncapping your potential. For I have put more in you than you have an eye to see. My explosive and undefeatable power and might reside within you, as do solutions to unsolvable problems. I have given you the mind of Christ and equipped you with supernatural gifts. Today, I uncap your potential!
“So tear off the lies of limitation, rise above the words of criticism, see beyond the circumstances of chaos, and choose to stand fully in the potential that I have dressed you in. This is your day, (insert your name)!”
Ephesians 3:20 AMP
Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do super-abundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us.
A NEW YOU! (8th May)
The Spirit of the Lord says, “It is time to stand in your anointing and calling! I have called you for such a time as this! Do you hear me? It’s time to shake off the grave clothes! It’s time to leave behind the comfortable, the status quo! It’s a new season! Winter is over. Spring has come, and the old won’t fit any more. You need your ‘Now’ outfit, your ‘Now’ thinking, your ‘Now’ anointing and calling. I know you feel inept and even unsure of yourself, but keep looking to me. I won’t lead you off the path that I have set for you, so stay close!
“You are going to love your ‘New You’. I have you made you and shaped you for this; it’s tailor made, fits perfectly, and won’t pinch or rub. Just follow me and see how much fun we’re going to have. There really is no comparison between your old grave clothes or the new wardrobe that I have designed just for you!”
Song of Solomon 2:11 & 13b
For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
Rise up my love, my fair one. And come away!
Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”
