Building testimony

Building testimony after testimony with God is the most important thing.  True testimony is built on the the Word of God.  In my previous post, I mention how God had set me free in an area of my life that I had been struggling with for the 5 years that I had been married to my husband.  You can read it if you haven't already by visiting Get the Spirit not the Works.  Basically God freed me from the condemnation and hopelessness I was experiencing when it came to trying to be like the woman described in Proverbs 31.  He basically told me to stop focusing on the works and get the spirit.  There was a spirit acting through this woman and the spirit supplied the works.  This spirit is the "spirit of wisdom".  Wisdom is a spirit and is referred to in the bible as a "she".  So I started to look at the Proverbs 31 woman through a different set of eyes.  Now as I approach being a wife and mother and I think about the example in Proverbs 31, instead of focusing on her "works" I started praying "I need to get the spirit".  This is something that only God could work out in me.  So for the last couple days since that revelation, I've been praying that i need to get the spirit.  When it came to housework and home management I would think of Proverbs 31 and say to myself "not the works, I need to get the spirit".  And for the first time in a long time I was able to get all my laundry folded and put away in the matter of about 1 1/2 hours.  Laundry has been such a struggle for me, and really burdensome.  Could never seem to get it done.  When I got it done could never seem to get it folded, and when it was folded, could never seem to get it put up.  We were living out of laundry bins.  Praise God, I can testify today, that because I looked at the Proverbs 31 woman and praying for her spirit not her works, My laundry is washed, folded and put up. Hallelujah!  I was set free with the revelation, not the "works".  It's the revelation about something that sets us free, the works are just the fruit of your deliverance.  It's the revelation that sets us free, the works are just the fruit of our deliverance.

*Key Point - God wants to build testimony in your life.  When you read your bible, when there is a specific verse of passage that sticks out to you.  Focus on it, ask God what He wants to show you about it, then as you go about your day; think about the passage over and over again.  Talk to God about what you think He might be showing you.  As things pop in your mind concerning the passage speak those things out loud to God in a question form.  It doesn't happen overnight,  sometimes it can take months and years.  I started asking God about the woman in Proverbs 31, years ago.  I asked him what Christian woman were suppose to do with it.  I said God "What are we suppose to do with this".  It was obvious that it was impossible to do all that this woman was doing so God "Why did you put this in the bible?".  Now, years later He is showing me what to do with it.  Praise God!  If you really want complete deliverance from God, be patient, while believing that God will do it!  It won't happen without conversing with God daily about His word.
