The Light Daily Devotional – Settled in Heaven
Focus: Settled in Heaven
WORD FOR TODAY
The word of God and not the experience of men is settled in heaven. It is not appropriate to use the experience of men to explain the word of God but the word of God to explain the experience of men!
“Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven.” Psalms 119:89 NKJV
It is expected that the word of God should be the experience of men and not the experience of men to be the word of God. The experience of men can change and can be subjected to time and various seasons in life but not the word of God; this is because it is settled in heaven.
No matter what you feel about life as a result of your experience; it is not a basis for you or any man to alter what the Lord has said. The right approach is for us to always consider the word of God before taking any action and not finding the word of God as a backup to our actions or intended selfish desires. When the word of the Lord does not come first in every bid to carry out any divine assignment such work can never be correct; it will only fulfil the lust of the flesh.
People by the virtue of their experience disobey most of what Christ taught the new testament Church in terms of prayer, giving, love for enemies, taking an oath, fasting, treasure in heaven, cares and worries of life et.c (Matt 5-7). The good news of our Lord Jesus is no longer what motivates people to pray in most churches but the evil enterprise of the devil in the lives of men or the quest for materialism.
Whatever the case may be with you the fact remains that the Lord has a standard that can never be compromised.
+ Is the word of God your driving force?
Lord! Let your word become life in me in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: Your experience cannot change the word of God but the word of God can change your experience!
