Don’t Let Experiences Trump God’s Word — A Quote by Steve and Wendy Backlund in “Igniting Faith in 40 Days”

“When we fail or have experiences that do not line up with the promises of God… we have a choice. Do we keep our identity (and God’s identity) in His promises, or do we use experience to empower a negative identity for us and for God? We must remember that negative strongholds are created and strengthened when we put our experiences above God’s Word. When failure happens, we must think like this: ‘I may have sinned, but I am not a sinner. I may have had an accident, but I have a covenant of protection. I may be in lack, but I am a prosperous person. Healing may not have manifested, but I am healed and bring healing to others.'”
