John 8:32 (AMPC), "And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free."
Not one moment spent in the presence of the Lord is insignificant, and not one word of truth is only for our general knowledge. That's because every word from God has the power to perform what it says when we receive it into our hearts by faith. In John 17:17 Jesus prayed that the Father would sanctify us, by His truth. Then Jesus immediately says, "Your word is truth." Jesus identifies God's Word as truth, which has the power to set us free from the grip of sin, to live in and for Him! You see, when God's Word is alive in our hearts, it has the power to keep us free from sin and living in God's perfect will for our lives. While you spend time meditating on His Word, ask the Holy Spirit to make its truth alive to you so that it's power can transform you from the inside out. This way the word will shift from just being head knowledge to something you can tangibly experience. For instance, God's Word says that Jesus died and rose again to become our Saviour. That truth is not meant to be just head knowledge, we are meant to believe it with our hearts, let it be the confession of our mouths and by faith, we literally receive Him as our Saviour; knowing and experiencing Him in a very real and personal way. The same is true when the Word says Jesus is our Healer. Those words are meant to become our reality, where we don't just know about the Healer, we experience Him as our Healer, and our Provider and everything else the Word says He is to us. Essentially, everything about God and His Word is meant to be transferred to us to not just know about, but personally experience, and this is all done by the work of the Holy Spirit Who inspired that word and lives in us to perform it. Embrace the truth of God's Word today and allow its power to set you free and keep you living that way!
