(Delve Deeper Into God’s Word)
TO THE BIBLE: John 16:3
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”
When you look at all of God’s wonderful truths, as revealed in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, you find that some are greater than others. Studying His life, you’d learn how to walk in the greater truths of God’s Word. Divine healing, for example, is a truth and blessing from God; it’s nice to know that no matter the sickness, you can receive healing. But there’s a greater revelation than this, and it’s living in divine health twenty-four hours, every day of your life! It’s a state where you’re free of every sickness, disease and infirmity, never needing to be healed.
You’ll never read in the Bible that Jesus once sneezed or complained of a headache. He never had to call His disciples to pray for Him so He could get better. No, He always lived in divine health. Hallelujah! Matthew 15:26 calls healing the children’s bread, which means it’s children (spiritual babes) that require healing. As you mature in the things of the Spirit you leave the good things for the best—you move from asking for healing to living in divine health.
Deliverance is also another great truth, but living in divine protection is greater. There’s something better than you getting into trouble only for God to bring you out of it each time; that’s divine protection—God shielding you completely from trouble. All through the ministry of Jesus, He never needed to be delivered from the devil or any trouble. That’s the greater truth, and that’s the revelation by which you ought to live. Measure your life’s experiences with the Word and the life of the Lord Jesus, and always desire to function in the revelation of these greater truths.
Dear Lord Jesus, my gaze is fixed on you and your eternal Word, to guard and guide me in life. You’re my perfect example, and I purpose to function always in the greater revelations of your Word! Your Spirit causes me to grasp and walk in the deeper realities of the Kingdom!
