Power of Knowledge
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:”
2 Peter 1:3
Until we have the knowledge of God, we cannot access or enjoy His provisions. All the power available from God to live and be godly comes through knowledge. Until we go for knowledge via teaching and instruction, the goodies of life and godliness will be farfetched.
Knowledge is essential. Knowledge in all areas of life is important. Knowledge gives us the power and audacity to face and tackle the challenges of life with confidence. There are two types of knowledge:
1. Secular knowledge
2. Spiritual knowledge
As far as God is concerned, spiritual knowledge is superior to gold and silver! To know God is more valuable than money. God laments about lack of knowledge, not about lack of money. It is dangerous to lack knowledge. The Bible says,
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” And not, “My people are destroyed for lack of money.” Ignorance of God and His word is more destructive than lack of money.
Do you know that every time Israel turned from God due to their ignorance of God and His laws, they went onto a path of eventual destruction? If you don’t want destruction, then embrace the knowledge of God.
3 benefits of knowledge:
1. Freedom
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 8:32
Our freedom is anchored on the threshold of knowledge!
2. Exploits
“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”
Daniel 11:32
Knowledge of God procures the power to do exploits in life.
3. Strength
“A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.”
Proverbs 24:5
A man of knowledge has the advantage of strength. A man of knowledge is powerful even as he grows stronger and stronger!
Go for knowledge today and always!
I decree and declare that you will engage the power of knowledge to make a difference in your world in Jesus mighty name.
