‘Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.’ Psalm 107:2 NKJV
No matter how badly you have failed, God will give you another chance.
After Jonah had disobeyed God, spent three days in the belly of a whale, and been regurgitated on the shore close to where he started, the Bible says, ‘The word of the Lord came unto Jonah the second time.’ (Jonah 3:1 KJV) King David’s sins were front-page tabloid material. Yet God restored him, and he wrote: ‘He… brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay… set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth—praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.’ (Psalm 40:2–3 NKJV)
When God restores you, it doesn’t matter who’s fighting against you. When He raises you up, no one can keep you down. If God has redeemed you—say so. Nobody else can tell your story. Nobody else knows what God has done for you. Nobody else knows how far you’ve come. Nobody else knows what you’ve been through. But you do—you know it was only by God’s grace that you survived.
So don’t allow the devil to steal your testimony. It may have taken you longer than everybody else, but God has given you the victory. The devil would love to silence you. Why? Because when you tell people what God has done for you, someone else will be set free. The Bible says, ‘Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.’ So the word for you today is: shout it from the rooftops!
