I’ve seen so many people coming to church but went out the same. I’ve seen people prayed countless times but but did not receive an answered prayer. I’ve seen people lifting up their hands joyful during praise and worship but went out sad and depressed.
Why? Everything is done out of religion and not out of relationship. Everything is done out of imitation but no revelation. Everything is done out of social activities but no intimacy. Everything is done out of selfish ambition but no desire for friendship in the one true God. Result? There is a form of Christianity but no power.
So what are we going to do? Let us know God at His Word. Let us take God at His Word. Let us believe God at His Word. Let us know our authority based on the Word. Why? Because He is His Word.
So when God says, by the stripes of Jesus you were healed (Isaiah 53:5) then believe it as it is, you are healed. If God says, He will supply all your needs according to His riches and glory in heaven and as you support His cause, you will have what you need (Phil 4:19).
My challenge? Take Him at His Word. Believe Him. He is more real than what you see in the physical eyes.
