Apples of Gold - February 10 |

Experience of whatever kind absolutely cannot become our main focus, nor can we prove our interpretation of the Word by it. The Lord, however, certainly gives us, in His unique way, very precious confirmations and intimate assurances of His Word. The human tendency is to testify to these experiences, which then can lead to a number of problems. We must heed the Holy Spirit’s direction. There are many examples of people in leadership who did not do so, which eventually led to pride, a superior attitude, imitating and covetousness by followers, and even entire ministries filled with error and imbalance. The works of God are indeed splendid and hand-tailored, but how we handle them must glorify Him and Him alone. –TBC

“We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts…” –2 Peter:1:19
