His Testimony Goes Before Us and Returns With Us

So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said: “Rise up, O LORD! Let Your enemies be scattered, And let those who hate You flee before You.” And when it rested, he said: “Return, O LORD, To the many thousands of Israel.”

— Numbers‬ ‭10‬:‭35-36‬ NKJV

The ark is the Ark of the Testimony. As I have written before, this is the container that held the items which were things that testified of G-d. The Ten Commandments, G-d’s Word, Aarons staff, G-d’s Power, and the Omer of Manna, G-d’s Provision.

G-d’s Testimony in Our Lives

“And you shall put into the ark the Testimony which I will give you.”

— Exodus 25:16 NKJV

What testimony has G-d given you? Have you placed it in the ark within your heart? Have you placed all the things G-d has told you to place there?

The things G-d told Moses to place into the ark were the tablets of stone that were the Ten Commandments, Aaron’s staff that budded, and the omer of Manna.

These things were not only to be placed inside the ark, but when the time was right, they were to be taken out of the ark and placed before the ark to be on display for all to see the Testimony of G-d.

These things are a testimony of G-d’s Word, His Power, and His Provision.

The Testimony that we keep in our hearts, should have these three testaments as well. A proclamation and account of His Word, His Power, and His Provision.

A Testimony is not about us, but about G-d and what He has done. When you give the Testimony of G-d, is it about you or about G-d and what He has done? What do you proclaim? What do you give an account of?

For perspective, there is nothing wrong with giving some history, but how is that history given? Is it a proclamation of where G-d brought you from, or is it a story of things you used to do?

We have to remember, no one needs the details of the sinful past. People just need to hear what G-d has done and where He brought you from. G-d delivered the Israelites from Egypt. We can say, “G-d delivered me from…” and fill in the blanks. That is a proclamation of His Work in us. Too many times we reflect on the past and what we used to do, instead on where G-d has brought us to. People need to hear the latter. They already know what the former is like.

Proclaim today what G-d has done for you and give the Testimony of G-d, not of you.

Self-Examination Challenge

No need to reply to these questions.


Do we really honor G-d in ALL that we do?
Is our life a reflection of what G-d has done with our heart?
Have we really given EVERYTHING over to G-d?
Is our life one that can be recognized as one that is with pure conviction with 100% obedience to G-d and loving every moment of it?
Are we TRULY seeking G-d in every part of our life?
How much time are we studying His Word to understand Him?
How much time are we spending in talking with Him and LISTENING?

I know that I need to work in all of these areas. To G-d be the Glory in the changes He has already done. I look forward to the changes that are to come.

I’m Not Done with You Yet

In the book of Joshua, chapter 13 we read that G-d is telling Joshua,

“You are old, advanced in years, and there remains very much land yet to be possessed.”

G-d basically told him, “I am not done with you yet, there is still much to accomplish.”

As we get older we tend to foolishly think that G-d can’t use us for certain things because it is too late for us, that our time for use has passed us by. This is an absurdity. G-d has ALWAYS used ANYONE who is WILLING to be USED OF HIM.

Seek G-d and His Will in your life and NEVER STOP. He has an assignment for you and when that one is done, He has another.

As David wrote in Psalm 1, verse 2 (second half)

“…and in His Law he meditates [plans] day and night”

we need to plan according to G-d’s perfect Law, His perfect Will. The only way to do this is to spend time in prayer and in His Word. Talk with Him, walk with Him, grow in your relationship with Him.

Delight yourself in His Law and He will bless you, beyond your expectations and beyond your abilities regardless of your age or physical condition.

To G-d be the Glory forever!
