The Truth of God’s Word OR The Truth of Circumstances Pt 4

God has called each Christian to not only read God’s Word but also live it out and it’s this living it out that is proving problematic for Christians today. The Christian lives in 2 kingdoms. They live in the kingdom of this world and they live in the Kingdom of God, and each of these kingdoms has it’s own set of truths, therefore wherever there is a clash of these truths, the Kingdom of God truth must take precedence over the kingdom of this world’s truth.

Consider this example: A man is suddenly made redundant in a time of recession, receives no severance pay and realises within a few weeks he won’t have enough money to provide for himself and his family.

The truth of this world’s kingdom states that he has no money, will find it nigh on impossible to get a job and, unable to pay the mortgage may lose his family home.

The truth of God’s Kingdom states: Phil 4:19  And it is God who will supply all my needs from his riches in glory because of what Christ Jesus has done for me.  (TLB)

Ps 23:1 THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.  (AMP)

If we are going to live as a Christian, the truth of God’s Word must always trump the truth of circumstances; and this is where faith and trust come into play. Paul said, “The just shall live by faith” (Rom 1:17) and, “The live I live, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me”.

These promises belong to us because we are in Christ, but we must claim them by faith to see them operate in our lives. How do we develop such faith; we must spend time reading, memorising, meditating and confessing the promises until faith and trust arise in our hearts and we see God move to meet our needs.

Successive generations have let go of and lost the revelation of a life of faith and God is raising up men and women who are willing to contend for and recover such truth.

Meditation point: “Open the eyes of my spirit to see the dynamic reality of faith” (Eph 1:17-19).
