“As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”
How do I know the Bible is the Word of God? Because it gave me the experience it claimed it would. I believe it because everything the Bible promised me has been true. Everything.
For example, the Bible says that God would forgive my sin: “But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness” (1 John 1:9 NLT).
When I first read that verse, I prayed, “Lord, cleanse me of my sin.” And one of the first things I remember experiencing as a brand-new Christian was the sensation of having a massive weight removed from me.
