Your Life is a
Testimony

This He ordained in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: “Where I heard a language that I did not understand.” – Psalm 81:5

     Your life has been ordained for a testimony like Joseph – betrayed, rejected, persecuted by his brethren. He suffered many years to be brought out and lifted up to be a provision for those who hated him (Genesis 45:5).
     The hard times are for a purpose. You are being refined in the fires of your circumstances. God is forming you to be the person He wants you to be; an instrument to play. And the music your God plays through you will bring deliverance to many.
     So for the joy set before you endure what is and what may come – for all things work together for good to them who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 828).
     Fear nothing; never let the darkness extinguish the Light of God in your soul.
     Always remember you are a testimony.
