If I delight in God and in His law, which I do, why should I be silent about it? This was a question, a reflective question, that popped into my mind as I read Psalms 40, written by David. The desire to tirelessly proclaim the good news is the will of many believers but then the world chokes us with all its criticism and comments. There is a shift in methodology but the gospel will always remain unchanged. In the technological age we are in, I believe that whatever platform we have as web users, it should be tailored for the glory of God. I once saw clips going around that insinuated that Christians are forcing the gospel down throats of people by flooding the internet with videos especially on Tiktok ( you probably have a few that have come to mind now that begin with …before you scroll let me pray for you or let me encourage you today…you know those? ) That’s just one example and you’d want to clap back and argue it out or even question motives of some videos but I implore you to self evaluate whether you have contributed to the flooding. What will it take for the internet to be infiltrated with the gospel that with every scroll, you see Jesus? We cannot limit ourselves to physical buildings or home visits (which we certainly can’t do now anyway) Romans 10:14 “…how then can they call on Him whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him if they have not heard?And how shall they hear without a preacher?  


I am reminded of the times I have personally been unconsciously insecure about putting up too much on my internet space. Those moments when you want to share an entire  song but then you question whether only a 30 second  clip will do or the time when you  shared three verses and then decide to delete one so that you are not seen as being too spiritual on your status. On the flip side, when it comes to posting vacation photos and business items, we do not find ourselves second guessing on the number of posts we put out. Where is the error? Is it even a surprise that mission trips have less crowds? 

“I delight to do your will, O my God. And your law is within my heart. I have proclaimed the good news of righteousness in the great assembly; indeed, I do not restrain my lips.  O Lord, You yourself know. I have not hidden your righteousness within my heart; I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation. I have not concealed your righteousness and your  truth from the great assembly.” Psalms 40:8

Reading this verse made me confess for the times I felt I should quiet down; the times I let someone else influence my frequency in sharing;  for the times when I shared with fear of rejection and for the times that I wasn’t even faithful in sharing. I will not be able to make the confession like David did if I yield to the voices outside and kill the voice within me.

Psalms 150:6 “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord”. We have been wired to endlessly praise Him,and while there are many things that He has done that we can’t declare in entirety, we can start somewhere and share His goodness, one day at a time, one verse at a time. With consistent penetration of His truth in the hearts of men, no matter how long it takes, we are assured of revival and deliverance. 

One hindrance that is like an ingrained human fault is usually the notion that every thing we put out there must come with a feedback response from the audience to show the number of recipients and how they were impacted. While we are busy lost in seeking affirmation and waiting for pats on the back, we are gradually drifting from what matters most. And the truth is, many consume in silence.

Our goal should always be : Make God known and make His name great. We ought to be like the farmer who scatters their seed all through out his farm and is expectant because he has gladly sowed even though some seeds may die. Eventually, there will be a harvest and one day, you could be told of how your daily encouragement got someone through a hard situation or how that song you posted said all the right things for the season they were in. Until we embrace being used by God even in the minute ways, our lives will always be short of  testimonies from those around us!

  • Like a farmer, just sow
  • Like a river, just flow

Your life is a visible testimony but your mouth is your tool.

I want to boldly declare Psalms 40:8 as my confession just like David. Christ My Anchor is my rooftop and I will shout His good news  until the whole world hears..one post at a time. What is your rooftop? What will you begin shouting? What reservations do you need to overcome so you embrace a lifestyle of unrestrained lips when it comes to declaring His righteousness and goodness? But most important question, what do you want to be known for in your spaces? 

Stay anchored. Keep His light shining through!
