10/34 Reinforce is the 8th step in Maturity in Hearing God

girl at computerBy this point in your journey, many places in your life have been cleansed and restored. Healing and self-forgiveness has been faced. Hopefully there have even been times when you and the Lord needed to talk with someone about the past hurts.

At this is part of the journey of His redemption, it would be helpful to others to share your journey. Others around you also need to know of His healing power; they need to know there is hope in the world.

Sharing your journey takes wisdom though. Not everyone can or will accept what you say. Some may be offended or take on a false sense of blame. This is not your intention when sharing your testimony. Your aim to to bring glory to God.

Share only the details that need to be shared. Protect the innocent in your story. Remember other who were part of your story may not understand why you are saying these details. If others are still involved, it would help to prepare them before you openly share with others. If this is a public testimony, have your facts and dates written down so you can be clear on the timeline.

However, this is your story and IF the Lord says to share the journey find the right time and place. Private details need to still within the boundaries of privacy for others as well.

Sharing your story at the right time will bring two important things into your life:

* It will solidify your freedom,   * It will encourage others to seek help to be free themselves.

Sharing with others can help you in your own journey – when the Lord tells you it is the time. I encourage you to let others know of this journey you have been on, especially your Growth group leader, or your pastor. Their faith will grow as well.
