January 11, 2021 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – HIS WORD, MY ULTIMATE LEADER – Matthew 5:18
Every day, you will be confronted with forces pulling you in opposite directions. Assuming you can tell a good decision from an evil one, are you also able to choose between two good decisions? Are you able to identify when the devil pretends as an angel of light? What do you do when there is a conflict between the word of God and a pastor? Who is the leader between the word of God and the Holy Ghost?
In every circumstance, let this principle guide your choice: Always go with the Word of God as your ultimate leader. God cannot contradict His Word. He has magnified His word above His name (Psalm 138:2). He Himself is the Living Word. This implies that every other channel of spiritual leadership – your spirit, the Holy Ghost, the anointing, the anointed, prophecies, the calling, angels, counsellors, visions, etc. – must align with the word of God.
If you sense a communication from the Holy Ghost, hear the counsel of a pastor or even see the appearance of an angel, they must not contradict the word of God, otherwise, that is a false angel, pastor, or vision you have seen. To avoid deception, you have to make a lifelong commitment to read, study and know His Word and the spirit of His Word.
PRAYER: Father, help me to know Your principles. I will follow Your word as my leader at every point in time. I will not be confused or deceived in Jesus’ name.
