Day 36 | FEBRUARY 5, 2021 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng


Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Mark 7:13

The Bible declares; (Heb 4:12) …the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword. Luke 1:37 …with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment. So why were the people able to successfully render the Word ineffective?

The answer is in the verse, TRADITION. The one thing so powerful and able to defeat the word of God in your own life is tradition.

A tradition is any long standing behavior, practice or belief that a person hangs on to and by that is not able to receive the word of God with all his heart. Some people say “I will die” as part of their everyday language because of the way they were brought up. If you ask them to stop they will tell you “it is nothing, it is just the way I talk” . They are not aware they're creating room for death in their life whiles preventing God's word of protection from operating.

It was for this reason God asked Abraham to leave his country, family and his house. Basically, He was told to leave every tradition behind. Walking in a deeper relationship with God requires leaving old beliefs behind and embracing only what He says. If you are double minded, James 1:6-7 says you will receive nothing from God.

Heb 4:2, For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.

This accounts for the reason many people hear the word of God in a church service but only few bear fruit. Often the Word of God is choked by the traditions of men. If what you are learning from the word of God contradicts your traditions, kindly do away with the tradition. This is how to benefit from the Word of God.



I replace every tradition in my life with the Word of God. I don’t stumble at the word of God through unbelief. I throw anything I learnt and believed away if they contradict the Word of God.
