KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:32 KJV” And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
A woman was divorced from her husband which resulted in her becoming so depressed. Another was divorced and she lived as if nothing had happened. A child was asked to sweep a portion of land, and ended up complaining throughout the whole exercise. Another was asked to sweep the same piece of floor, and he joyfully sang throughout the period of sweeping. Which of these people had a problem?
A problem is not necessarily what happens, but how, one allows a condition to break him down. Rom 12:21 KJV “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good”. Why did they tend to break down in the challenging moments? They could not apply the word to overcome whatever came at them. The word of God is the perfect law of liberty that will put you over any situation if you would dare to trust in God, and to apply it.
God’s word is truth and it is to make us free from whatever comes against us.2 Timothy 3:17 says the scriptures are given to us, to make the man of God, or child of God perfect, thoroughly furnished unto every good work. As truth it furnishes you or supplies you with everything you need to handle every condition in this life. The man, who is feeling defeated, has chosen not to apply the word of God to his or her particular situation.
If he is to do so, He would surely stand out free.
If you are angry and complaining about a second person causing all your unhappiness, then you have failed to apply the word. If you are filled with fear of any kind, if you are worried about anything, or any form of the condition, then you are failing to apply the word that makes one free. Prov 24:10 KJV” If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.”
The word says cast all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). It says count it all joy when you fall into divers’ kinds of temptations (Janes 1:3). If you have a demonic attack, the word says, at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus is Lord, to the glory of God (Philipp 2:11). The word has a solution for every challenge.1Jn 5:4 KJV” For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith”.
Your faith is the universal defensive weapon, that quenches every onslaught of the devil. Eph 6:16
Faith always comes by hearing the word. Give attention to the word.
It does not matter, how severe a challenge may be, refuse to be put down by it. The word sets free, act on it.
The word of God is God’s key to every door of life, it is light for every darkness and medicine for every disease. With the word, I am guaranteed an ultimate moment of victory in Jesus’ name.
THOUGHT: STAY WITH GOD’S WORD, AND STAY VICTORIOUS ALWAYS
Psalms 1:2, 3 KJV” But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Isaiah 55:11 KJV ” So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
