Apostle Grace Lubega
John 14:13-14 (KJV); And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
The Word of God is the foundation of the liberties that we have in God. In James 1:25, it is referred to as the perfect law of liberty.
But do all Christians get to enjoy the liberties of the Word? Not necessarily.
This is because not many people understand how this liberty works.
When God gave us His Word, it was not based on individual circumstances, that is, it’s operation was not (and is not) confined to the uniqueness of someone’s position in life. When He sent the Word, He gave us the full picture of it and left it to us to define how far we desire to go in the liberties that the Word presents.
Take the example of our theme scripture. It says, “WHATSOEVER YOU ASK.” Whatsoever has no limitation in it but one man may read it and believe God for a pair of shoes and another will read it and believe God for the grace to transform nations. These are two different men exercising liberty in different ways because of their interpretation of the possibilities in the Word.
Consider a blank canvas. On it, one man paints a tree, while another paints a forest. Each picture depends on what the artist sees.
As far as the Word is concerned, your journey in and by it is defined by what is revealed to you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: As far as the Word is concerned, your journey in and by it is defined by what is revealed to you.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I understand the greatness of Your Word. I refuse to live a life of limitation. I know that there is nothing that You cannot do. I look at the Word from the perspective of the liberties that You have availed, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
