EXPERIENCE SUPERSEDED *
*By Miles Stanford*

"And they who know Thy Name will put their trust in Thee" (Ps. 9:10).
Our experiences must be judged by God's Word, never the Word judged by
our experiences. Normally, the Spirit of Truth will reveal a truth to us
from the Scriptures and, as we exercise faith in what we have been
shown, will begin to take us into the experience of it. Abnormally, a
Christian will yearn for an 'experience, ' and then attempt to find
corroboration for it in the Word.
"Knowledge must carry the torch before faith." Always give God's Word
first place, "for the Word of God liveth and worketh, and is sharper
than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul
and spirit, yea, to the inmost parts thereof, and judging the thoughts
and imaginations of the heart" (Heb. 4:12, Cony.).
"A person may easily know his sins forgiven, but it is a further truth
to know that he himself has 'died to sin.' He finds this conflicts with
his experience. Suppose I tell you a debt of a thousand pounds which you
owed was paid by someone, it would not be a question of experience, but
of simply believing my statement. Just so with God. He tells us our sins
are forgiven, and it is a question whether we believe Him. But when He
tells us we have died to sin, we look inside and say, 'Ah, sin is still
at work; how is that?' A person must be taught of God to know really the
truth that he has died to sin."--J.N.D.
''It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every
word of God" (Luke 4:4).
