Amber Testimony

The Word of God is the known will of God, but it is also our comfort, our teacher, our correction.  I want to talk about it as our comfort. All of us have those days when we’re a bit down. Maybe something bad has happened. If you open your Bible and let the Holy Spirit guide you, you’ll find some piece of Scripture that you’ve never run across before or maybe that you just see in a different light.  Sometimes, when I’m reading the Word I don’t even realize that there is something that I need and then I’ll read a passage that is so applicable to something that I’ve been going through or experiencing.  I remember when I was first saved; I was struggling to understand the spiritual with my mind.  I was so used to processing everything with my mind, to

understanding things logically and you can’t do that with the things of God.  I was reading the Bible one day and ran across this passage, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because

they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Cor. 2:14, KJV).  It was like a light bulb went off.  I then remembered Isa. 55:8-9, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher

than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” These two Scriptures comforted me and taught me.  Now if I find myself trying to process the things of God with my mind, I use these Scriptures to remind myself to stop, to check in with my spirit, and to trust in God.
