Psalm 71:15–16 (ESV): "15 My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge. 16 With the mighty deeds of the Lord God, I will come; I will remind them of your righteousness, yours alone."
Our witness to the world is the testimony of what God has done in our lives. When we praise God before man for what He has done in us it gives others a glimmer of hope! Don't stop glorifying Him by sharing all that He has done in you!
The psalmist here is thinking back over his life and all the amazing things God has done. He can’t help but speak forth praise for God has saved Him and worked mightily on his behalf countless times. He recognizes that the path forward is not found in him and his abilities but in God. He must continually come to the world in the mighty deeds of God and God will be glorified.
The testimony of believers is so important to share. We don't want to glory in our past but we do want to glory in what God has done. When people who know who you once were see and hear of what God has done it will give them hope that He can do the same in their life. Glorify the Lord by sharing all that He has done in you. And then keep moving forward in the power and mighty of God and what He can continue to do. He is the God who saves so let us walk faithfully in Him!
Father, thank You for working miraculously in our lives to such a degree that others could recognize it. You are a God who doesn't just change but makes us new. May we walk the streets of this world proclaiming all that You have done. Help us to continue in the power of the Spirit that Your deeds might be manifest through us for Your glory we pray in Jesus name, amen.
