Life sometimes has a way of making us question God’s word. Experiences happen to us and we start to wonder if God’s word really is true. Verse 7 says, “The law of the Lord is perfect”. What he is referring to is God’s word. The devil will use every bad thing in your life to try and get you to question God’s word and God’s character. If someone close to us dies unexpectedly we ask God “why?”. Immediately we begin to question God’s word and his character. This is something the devil has been doing since Adam and Eve. He got them to question God’s word, “did God really say if you eat, you will surely die?” and God’s character “He knows if you eat you will be like God.”
The truth is that the devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy so if it’s not good, then it’s not God.
Life happens to us all. Tragedy, death, loss, and pain happen to us all but God says that His plan is for us to have life and to have life more abundantly. I love what Bill Johnson says. He says, “I will not lower the standard of the bible to my level of experience”. In other words, God’s word is always the authority on the matter.
Prayer: God, give me a passion for your word. Help me to never let my experiences take precedence over what your word says you have planned for me. Thank you that all of the promises in your word are for me because of Jesus Christ my Lord!
