The Witness

Today as I was listening for Jesus, He brought a verse to mind, one that I was reminded of just yesterday. It is "Be still, and know that I am God." Be still and LISTEN to me is what He was saying to me today. Be still and hear the truth of who I am and who you are in me! Be still and know of the plan that I have laid out for you! Be still, and I will whisper to you. Be still, and know that I am God, so you can be my witness! In Isaiah 43: 10 I read this:

"You are My witnesses, declares the Lord, And My servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He. Before me there was no God formed, and there will be none after me."

As I thought about this more, and listened more throughout the day, Zephaniah 3:8 came to mind. This is what it says:

"Therefore wait for me, declares the Lord, for the day when I rise up as a witness. Indeed, My decision is to gather the nations, to assemble kingdoms, to  pour out on them my indignation, all my burning anger; for all the earth will be devoured by the fire of my zeal."

In this verse I heard him say He is the Witness of all things. In Him I must wait and trust, for He will bring everything together, Him, not me.
In the meantime, I am here to be used as His Witness, to further His Kingdom, to be a light on a hill, for Him.

The last verse that came to mind as I was fishing with my children was Revelation 12:11

"And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death."

The Word of their testimony! He continues to call me to speak, to witness, to testify for Him. All of His children are called to speak the Word of their testimony, to continue to Say That Again!
