I keep thinking about this much-familiar verse--- "They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony."
I've never really thought much about the phrase "word of their testimony" before now.
I think I always just took it to be synonymous with simply "their testimony".
But there is a key difference.
Having a story of redemption and deliverance isn't enough. It's the telling of my story that brings victory.
As I put words to what God has done in my life, I continue to overcome.
But if I keep it to myself, God doesn't get glorified in it and I don't move forward in my own healing and restoration.
We have to put words to our testimony.
You've got a story to tell.
