Read Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotional January 4 2024 ”Always a witness” below.
So that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ.
Recommended Reading: Acts 28:30-31
Being a witness for God originated in the Old Testament, not the New. Three times (Isaiah 43:10, 12; 44:8) God told the Jews that they were to be “My witnesses” among the nations. Witnesses to what? To the fact that their God was the only true God among the impotent idols worshiped by others. Wherever they went—especially in captivity in Babylon—they were to be witnesses for God.
Jesus gave the same responsibility to the Spirit-empowered Church: “You shall be witnesses to Me…to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Like the captive Jews in Babylon, the apostle Paul found himself in captivity more than once. But even in his difficulties, he never failed to be a witness for Christ. In his first Roman imprisonment, it became known to everyone that he was an ambassador in chains (Acts 28:30-31). The responsibility to witness for Christ is not only for when it is convenient but also for wherever God leads us.
Think afresh today about your life as a witness for Christ; ask God to make you mindful of opportunities to speak for Him.
Every believer is a witness whether he wants to be or not.
Donald Grey Barnhouse.
Today’s words of inspiration:
People can’t override what God has ordained for you. Bad breaks, delays, detours, injustice can’t stop your destiny. God uses them to move you into your destiny.
You’re not on your own. You and God are a majority. Nothing can stand against Him. What He has purposed for your life will come to pass. Now, get in agreement with God.
God wants us to depend on Him. He wants us to see Him as the Source. Too often, we’re striving to make things happen, discouraged because it’s taking too long. God is saying, “Come to Me. Ask Me for help. Call on My name and acknowledge Me as your Source.”
It’s not too late. You can still become all God has created you to be. When you’re in agreement with God, He’ll make things happen that you couldn’t make happen. He’ll open doors you couldn’t open. He’ll cause opportunity, good breaks, the right people to come looking for you.
