God said that the Name of Jesus is above every name and at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow. But He also said that He has magnified His Word above His Name. Wow! That means that the Word of God is above everything and that His Word has the final say.
Philippians 2:9-11 (KJV) 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Psalm 138:2b (KJV) 2 … for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
However, there is something that will negate the Word of God and cause it to be ineffective. How can that be? Jesus said it’s your traditions that will render the Word of God ineffective in your life! What? Let’s take a look.
Mark 7:13a (KJV) 13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition …
Just what are the traditions that will cause God’s Holy Word to be of no effect? Take healing for example. Many Christians have been taught that it’s not God’s will to be healed every time. Maybe you’re one of them. But that’s simply not true.
It is His will to heal you every time! There’s not one time in the Bible of a person who came to Jesus for healing and He turned them away. Therefore, what you’ve been taught is a tradition and not God’s Word. That will hinder your faith and keep you from receiving your healing. How can you believe in God’s faithfulness if you don’t know His will? You can’t even have faith for healing if you don’t know that it’s His will. Faith stops at the question mark and starts where the will of God is known.
It’s the same with prosperity. If you don’t know that it’s God’s will for you to prosper, you won’t have the faith to receive His prosperity and blessings.
3 John 1:2 (KJV) 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
If you’ve prayed and prayed and wondered why you haven’t received your answer, check your traditions and see if that’s what’s blocking your blessing.
It’s imperative that you know the difference between what people say and what God has said. Know the difference and get blessed!
