The Power Of Testimonies

Your past testimonies are current weapons and tools of advancement.
Revelation 12:11 - And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony

God expect you to use your past testimonies to “remind” His deeds to you as you plead for more from Him.
Psalms 77:11 - I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
Isaiah 43:26
- Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.

King Hezekiah reasoned with God to a point of making God changed His mind concerning the death of the King.
Isaiah 38:1 – 6
1 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.
 2 Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the LORD,
 3 And said, Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.
 4 Then came the word of the LORD to Isaiah, saying,
 5 Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.
 6 And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.

Remind God of your past service and His goodness to you as you express your desire for more blessings.
Isaiah 1:18 - Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
