Knowledge of Scripture alone will not transform you. Study of the word, memorizing verses will not transform you. Experiencing what God says is your God-given right in Christ. There has to be a performance of the word in your life, but you don’t get a performance of it if you are running away. If you are running away from God, if you are turning your back on the circumstances, if you spend more time whining than worshiping, it’s just not going to happen for you.
