Testimonies

Shiloh believes that everyone has a testimony, and that it is by our testimonies that we overcome for the scripture says 'and they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony...'(Revelation 12:11)

 

Give Up The Struggle!

The Lord has brought me to a place where He has made me realise that I by myself could do nothing other than to live for Him and He would do the rest. I struggled in my Christian life for many years. I was battered from 'pillar to post', as I wanted to do all things by myself. As I learnt not to rely on my own strength but rather place my whole focus on the Lord, my life began to change for the better. I no longer became as frustrated with life events or circumstances or with people as I had previously. I made efforts not to become angry when things didn't go my way, or to worry about the things I couldn't change. Rather, I began to Praise God for everything even when things didn't go my way. I made the decision to be sold out for Christ what ever the circumstances.

When I took my eyes off the things that so easily beset me and focused on the Lord, I began to grow into the woman and person that God desires me to be. As I committed my whole life to the Lord and to the 'spiritual house' in which He placed me, suddenly over many years of stagnation things began to happen for the better in my life. As a result of placing my whole focus on God, he showed me that I needed to be "consumed" by Him and not be a "consumer" of Him or His house. In other words I needed to be "sold out" for Him in every area of my life and to worship Him for all things.

I am now gaining a new understanding of how to live for Christ and I have learnt that the true meaning of worship is a total "lifestyle" of living for Christ. Gaining this understanding I now have a deeper relationship with God the Father and this principle has opened doors. Opportunities have presented themselves and I experience divine favour.

I would encourage everyone to be "Sold Out" for Christ!? Give up the struggles and your life will never be the same.
