HIS WORD HAS BEEN TRIED


HIS WORD HAS BEEN TRIED

Psalm 12:6-7 (NKJV) The words of the LORD are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 You shall keep them, O LORD, You shall preserve them from this generation forever.

When we use the Word of God, we can have confidence that it will do what it says that it will do.  How can we know this?   Because His Word has been tried.  I like how this verse says it: It has been tried in a furnace, purified seven times. 

We need to realize that God is not a man that He should lie.  In fact, it is impossible for God to lie!  There is no falseness in Him.  So when God gives us His Word, we can count on it like we would count on the word of a trusted friend.  So, you might ask, what is our part?  Our part is to believe it!  God wants us to take Him at His Word.

We see in the book of Hebrews that God was upset with the children of Israel, because they did not believe Him.  They saw all the miracles that He did for them, and yet they tried Him over and over, and that generation did not see the Promised Land.  And so it can be with us.  If we do not take God’s Word and get it deep within us, then we will come to places in our lives where we do not trust Him to help us.

God has given to us the ability to choose, and when we choose to do it our way, or to not get God involved in a situation, He, in His great love, will let us go through it.  But if we will wise up and know that His Word has been tried, and that we can put our trust in His Word and watch it come to pass, it will come to pass.

Great faith believes that what the Bible says is true.  Oh that sounds so simple and when you think of it!  When we can become like a child and believe our Father, we will see great things come to pass in our lives.  So let His Word get deep within you, and see great things done for His kingdom!

CONFESSION:  Let God be true and every man a liar.  God, my Father, has given me everything that His Word has stated.  I believe this, and I am a doer of the Word!
