John 8:32 (KJV)
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
After Chinonso failed the same examination two consecutive times, he got tired of life. Even though he was a Christian who had been baptized in the Holy Ghost, he contemplated giving up [on God]. The next opportunity to rewrite the exam would be his last chance. It was at this time of depression that he found the scripture verse(Ps 84:7) that says “they go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God”. He responded to this light by choosing a specific time and place where he would stay in God’s presence(appear before God) each day through prayer and the word. Even though he couldn’t pray sometimes, he remained there in his place of prayer, waiting on God.
Chinonso passed the examination with flying colors the next time he took it. He could only attribute his resounding success this time to the strength he had received by daily waiting on the Lord.
The word of God reveals the truth that makes people free (John 8:31-32). Many have the Bible and have memorized some of it but are not free. This is because the word has not been revealed to them as the truth. The day you find the truth, it will make you free.
The way to know that what you have is the truth is through the freedom that accompanies it. Those who walk in the truth of God’s word cannot walk anymore in bondage (to sin or any demonic limitation). You can have the letter of scripture as memory verses and quote them fluently, but if you are not free because of them, you have not really met with the truth.
Ask the Lord to open your eyes to His light (the truth) for you for this season and help you appropriate the full benefits of your freedom and riches in Christ. This is the secret of a victorious Christian life. Know that when the truth comes, it changes your mind and influences your conduct.
