Revelation states that we overcome by the blood of the lamb , and the word of our testimony. What is your testimony? I had such a traumatic childhood that I used unhealthy coping skills to try to survive. I became an adult trying to manipulate my way through life. I lacked the proper words to define my abuse. Had I been able to articulate and put in to words the brokenness of my soul the proper authority would have taken action to relieve me. I needed an advocate ,authority above my own power, and the power of my adversaries. My words, and testimony would have taken me out of bondage; not only by my words, but the authority that stood in agreement with me backing up my words as I spoke. I often have negative words flood my thought process. I grew up being abused physically, emotionally, sexually. Satan wanted me to believe that what happened to me was because I was worthless, but it was the abuse that gave me an illusion of low self-worth. I reinforced the illusion by becoming a person based on the testimony of my abusers. I often hear the words of the enemy spoken in my ear. I hear that I’m nothing, I’m unloved, and not capable of being loved. I was abandoned as a child, and I stated that I never belonged to anyone. I hear the words of failure crowding my mind. I didn’t progress as far as I should have in life, because of the lack of parental guidance, and structure. People that aren’t governed will govern themselves. I was abused, and sexually abused severely. I was groomed to have no boundaries, or set limits. I was un disciplined. I had my own set of rules, therefore I picked and chose what rules applied to me. I had my own written commandments. My body wasn’t respected or valued, through victimization I was taught to think and behave powerless. I wasn’t affirmed; I conformed to the lies of the enemy , and those that planted his seed. Yeshua was born, crucified, and he arose for a broken souls like me. Where I was voiceless he speaks for me. My testimony is no longer of defeat. Yeshua, my advocate has given me the same authority the same creative power to speak his word in to existence. His spoken word manifesting power, healing, and deliverance. He stands in authority backing me up as I walk in authority by speaking his word. We have a tool (Scriptures) to speak to every situation that was, is and will arise. The ability to use this tool isn’t based on feelings, circumstances but the power that works within us. The Paraclete, our advocate, comforter and one that walks beside us. The battle isn’t ours, but the Lords.
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthened me.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
18 “Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be as wool.
3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
2 Corinthians 4:16
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.
I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
1 Peter 2:24
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
This is my testimony!
