If you ask any Christian about whether or not they believe God’s Word, the answer would be yes. That’s because God’s Word is the very foundation upon which our faith is based. That’s good and as it should be. But—
What happens when you pray and pray about something and it doesn’t turn out the way you wanted? Do you still believe God’s Word or do you “edit” it to agree with your experience? This is wrong!
God’s Word isn’t based on your experience not does it depend on what you experience. God’s Word is the incorruptible Word of Almighty God and is forever settled in Heaven. It has stood the test of time and will forever be true—throughout all eternity.
Too many times people (Christians included) have based what they believe on their experience. This is contrary to the Word of God and will never get you the desired results. Nowhere in the Bible does God tell us to “go by our experience.” That would be disastrous because that’s the arena of the devil—the carnal world, the flesh, the physical conditions.
God moves in the spirit realm and that’s where born-again, Spirit-filled believers are supposed to move. We have the Holy Spirit residing in us Who leads and guides us. Our part is to listen and obey. God said that if we are willing and obedient we shall eat the good of the land (Isaiah 1:12). Who doesn’t want that!
God isn’t moved by our experience. His Word is true and He backs it up totally. We should have that same mind set: that we believe and stand on God’s Word no matter what our experience happens to be. We aren’t perfect and miss it more times than we care to admit. God never misses it. Which testimony should you believe?
Remember, God is faithful, faithful, faithful. If things didn’t work out the way you anticipated, continue to believe God’s incorruptible word and let Him keep you in perfect peace.
