The Truth That Makes Free – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 2 November 2021 By Pastor Paul Enenche
It is not head knowledge of God’s Word that changes life; it is the experiential knowledge of the Word of God that changes life.
SCRIPTURE: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is not head knowledge of God’s Word that changes life; it is the experiential knowledge of the Word of God that changes life.
The Word of God is designed to change your life and that of your generation. The Bible is not meant to be a book for decoration. It is a Book that is meant to cause total transformation of life and destiny.
However, many people carry the Bible without being positively affected by it.
The question is: why is it that the Word of God has not produced much result in the lives of many people?
The answer is in John 8:32 which says,
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
You see, some people misquote this Scripture by saying, “The truth shall set you free.” No. That is not what the Bible says.
The Bible says, “You shall know the truth and the truth that you know shall make you free.” Please take note of the word “Know”. The truth may not make you free if you don’t know it. It is the truth you know that makes you free. It is the truth that you have interacted with or experienced that makes you free.
Beloved, it is not head knowledge of the Word of God that changes life. It is the experiential knowledge of the Word of God that changes life. It is the truth that you have encountered or experienced that makes you free.
There are people who quote a particular Scripture in the face of turbulent situations and get the needed Divine intervention. But others may quote the same Scripture in the same situation and not see the same result. This is because the latter may not have known or interacted with the truth of the Word.
Beloved, determine to press for the revelation of the Word to experience a total transformation of your life.
Remember this: It is not the head knowledge of God’s Word that changes life. It is the experiential knowledge of the Word of God that changes life.
1. Refuse to have just a head knowledge of the Scripture.
2. Press for the revelation of the Word for the transformation of your life by the help of the Holy Spirit.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the revelation of Your Word. Open my eyes to behold wondrous things out of Your Word, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
