Everyday Testimony Of Him
By Jeanette Rose

        We, as Christians, have fellowship with God in Sunday worship. God has begun to testify of Himself to me through everyday things during the week. He brings to my mind scripture and concepts of truth about my relationship with Him. On Wednesday mornings, the other ladies of the church and I meet for an hour of intercessory prayer. I am always blessed when I arrive and Lou Juan has left the door open for me. You see Lou Juan walks and I can never tell when she has arrived first. The key to the front door goes deep within my purse so finding it is a big problem, and my arms are filled with books and purse.
        To walk to the door and see that the bolt is not closed is a relief. This testifies to me of God. His door is never locked. Scripture tells us we are God's children and as such God's door is always open to us. What father locks the door while his children are still out, but he waits for the child's return before locking the door for the night? Likewise our heavenly Father's door in always unlocked. Furthermore God gave us a doorman who stands ready to open the door for us. The one who stands ready to open that door is Jesus Christ. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Come all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. I go and prepare a place for you, that where I am you can come too. I am the door (man): by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out and be nourished." As these things are brought to my mind, I then am moved to praise God for His provision for me.
        More recently another everyday thing testified to me of God. As our car climbed toward 50,000 miles, we began to have some problems that required work. So we became ever mindful of our warranty running out. Another testimony of Him--my warranty will never expire with Jesus. I may develop a rattle, my brakes may fail, my fuel injector may need cleaning but my warranty will not run out. I have a warranty with the Father. 1 John 2:1 "If any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for our sins; and not ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world." Good news! You have a warranty too! Jesus Christ paid the premium on that cross! Paid in full! Hallelujah!
        You too can enter into fellowship with Him through the everyday happenings in your life. Try it, you'll like it. If scripture occurs to you about this everyday happening, look it up. Reread it. Perhaps commit it to memory. It is something God wants you to know about Himself. If you don't have time then, just praise Him for this truth He has shared.
