4 Phrases to Help You Witness

Pastor Daron CrossLife Blog

They’re all here in Psalm 66. Here we go.

Isn’t God awesome?

Some people suggest that the word awesome is overused. Maybe. But you can’t overuse it when you’re talking about God.

“Say to God, ‘How awesome are your deeds’” (Psalm 66:3)! The more you recognize God’s work in your life, and give him credit for it, the better you will witness. When people take notice of whats’s going on in your life, and perhaps give you a compliment or want to talk about it, give credit to God. 

And this one, in the form of a question, invites a response! 

Can I share something?

Ask a person this question before you witness. It gets their attention. It anticipates something important. It is an invitation and people love being invited to things.

“Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for mankind” (Psalm 66:5). Share with someone how you see God at work in your life, but more than that. He has saved all of mankind through Jesus Christ. Invite people to him by asking if you can share something.

God will work it out.

One of the strongest moments to witness is when you are in pain, trouble, experiencing loss or suffering. Those who don’t believe in God are watching you. What do you think of God now?

Share your faith during these times. “For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance” (Psalm 66:10-12). 

Never give up on God, because he doesn’t give up on you. He keeps his promises to see you through trouble as long as you let him lead. Tell others they can make it through troubles the same way.

That’s an answer to prayer!

Stay tuned into God by remembering what you have asked in prayer. Keep a journal. Take note of how God is moving in response. Be discerning in faith. 

Is he opening a new door? Closing one? Are you crossing paths with new people?

“Let me tell you what he has done for me … God has surely listened and has heard my prayer” (Psalm 66:16,19).

Don’t be afraid to bring God into the action and, in faith, grab onto his work in response to your prayers.
