Rhapsody of Realities 20 May 2023: Know and Walk in the Truth
SCRIPTURE: John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
When people don’t know the truth, they believe a lie, and as a result, they suffer in life. God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). This is really touching; it’s one of the reasons we’re teaching God’s people His Word through this devotional so they’ll walk in truth and in the realities of the new life in Christ.
What is truth and how does God see you? Truth is reality, truth is the Word of God. In John 17:17, Jesus said in prayer to the Father, “thy Word is truth.” Many have their lives in jeopardy and experience defeat, sadness, gloom, failure and sickness because of their ignorance of God’s Word.
But thanks be unto God! The Bible says through knowledge shall the just be delivered (Proverbs 11:9); the knowledge of who you are in Christ and your heritage in Him will transform the entire quality of your life. Understand that as a Christian, you’re a different breed. The Bible says, “But ye are a chosen generation…” (1 Peter 2:9). The word “generation” is the same word for “breed.” You’re a special breed, superior to sickness, disease and everything of darkness and the devil.
Also, you have an incorruptible life-a life of victory, success, excellence and great glory. It’s a life that can’t be infected by any plague or disease. You can’t be poisoned or destroyed. Jesus said, “And these signs shall follow them that believe…if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them…” (Mark 16:17-18).
You have to know and consciously affirm these truths about yourself every so often. You’re a partaker of the divine nature. The life in you is divine and sustained by the Spirit of God who lives in you: But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you (Romans 8:11). Live with this consciousness and exercise yourself in these truths!
CONFESSION: The same Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in me; therefore, I’m vitalized by the power of God-spirit, soul and body. I exercise myself in these truths and walk on in health. As a result of the divine life in me, I live triumphantly above sickness, disease and infirmities, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
19 Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.
And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.
[The magistrates and judges] know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in the darkness [of complacent satisfaction]; all the foundations of the earth [the fundamental principles upon which rests the administration of justice] are shaking.
6 I said, You are gods [since you judge on My behalf, as My representatives]; indeed, all of you are children of the Most High.
7 But you shall die as men and fall as one of the princes.
