“…I commend you to God and to the word of His grace which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified…” Acts 20:32 (NKJV)

Many of God’s people today make the mistake of using their experiences to interpret or judge the efficacy of God’s word. This often leads them to think that if the Word of God was effective, they shouldn’t go through difficulties. But the truth is that the fact that you are going through some challenges does not mean that the word of God is not working. Most of the time, it means you are growing in the use of the Word. So, you must never measure the potency of God’s Word by the challenges that you face. Rather, use God’s word to determine your experiences in life and do not try to think twice on this matter. Do not join those who think that God’s word is not working because of the situation that they face or go through, that is wrong theology. A bad experience does not make the word of God impotent, never forget this.

The devil may lie to you and make you think otherwise but do not give in to that lie. In Hebrews 4: 12 (NKJV), the Bible already said to us that “…the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any –edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and of joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account…” Did you see that? This lets us know that the word of God is very powerful. Therefore, you have a responsibility to use the Word of God to determine what your experience will be. Hallelujah!


God’s word should determine your experience and not the other way around!


Father, your word is indeed light to me, therefore I choose this day to live with this light and to use the word of God to determine my experiences in the name of Jesus. Amen!
