How Do YOU Measure The Word?
“And He said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.” Mark 4:24
When God says something to or about us, He really means what He says. Our traditions and our fears have kept us from stepping out fully on what He has said. A good example of this is the above Scripture. It is a very simple yet powerful truth and it is working for every one of us even though some of us may not even realize it. However each of us measures what we will believe of the Word of God, and that is exactly what we will receive. We have made God and the experiences of other men the measuring stick for our own receiving. The only responsibilities God has toward us is: giving us His Word to believe, then standing behind its producing for the one who truly stands in faith for that Word to come to pass in his or her life. It is not His responsibility to believe for us; we must search the Word, find what it says and then on purpose believe what He says. When an individual experiences either limited blessing from the Word of God or a total failure in receiving God’s blessing, we are not obligated to accept that man’s experience as the proof of what God has promised as His blessing toward us. Pray and believe that the Holy Spirit will help you to remain conscious of this truth. It will prove to be invaluable to you. You may have to stand alone; you may need to be a pioneer in some areas of the Scripture, but isn’t this a “personal relationship” that each of us has with the Lord? So let each of us receive our own responsibility to measure the Word and take the limits off of God and His desire to richly bless our lives.
