Topic: Stand On The Truth [Wednesday January 31st, 2018]
“Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.” Psalm 86:11(KJV)
Your positioning in Christ is the truth! Your circumstance is not the truth! Your circumstance is a fact; it is not the truth. The truth is superior to the fact. For instance, the fact may be that you don’t have a job now but your positioning is that God supplies all your needs. And that is where you should stand. That is where you should focus on. And the Holy Spirit will take it and begin to work out your getting a job and getting promotion and getting an increase. That is how it works! As long as you are looking at your circumstance, the Holy Spirit who is your helper is impotent. He will not help you because you are not standing in the truth.
The truth is that by His stripes you were healed. But your body is experiencing some pain or some discomfort and so the devil will say if you are saying you are healed how come you are experiencing discomfort? But the Holy Spirit will help you when you stand on the truth. The truth is by His stripes you are healed, though the fact is that you are experiencing discomfort. And so, when you stand in the truth, the Holy Spirit takes this truth and begins to work out the manifestation in your life. And after some time, you will just discover the pains are gone. The circumstance is no more there; the obstacle is removed. Why? The truth will always triumph over the circumstance.
You must be conscious of what the Lord has done. How do you become conscious of it? By celebrating the truth every moment of your life. Thank Him for the truth. The more you hear the truth the more you think it. The more you think it the more you see the image. And the more you see the image the more you talk it. The more you talk it the more it is producing. That’s how it works.
