Let’s get into the scripture once again.
Daniel 11:32 “… but the people who KNOW their God will be
strong and carry out great exploits”.
See that? Those who Know their God, and not those who
Know about their God. Exploits in the Kingdom are birthed by
the knowledge of God. This kind is called Revelation
Knowledge, not Head Knowledge. Many people pray on
mountains, at the valley and at every place they nd
themselves, asking God for the supernatural and exploits, but
unfortunately they are void of knowledge. I have seen church
leaders who go for marathon fasting and prayers, asking for
increase and enlargement in their ministries but unfortunately
they lack sense of leadership. They don’t have the knowledge
of what it takes to lead, they don’t have initiatives, and they
want increase, and nancial breakthrough. That’s impossible.
No wonder Paul was praying for the Ephesians that they may
have the Knowledge of God’s will, and the hope of their
calling and walk worthy of it – Colossians 1:9-18.
Which means, no knowledge of God’s will, no walking worthy
In fact the main prayers of the apostle Paul for all believers is
that they may have the knowledge of God, Jesus and what
they have been called into.
Christianity is not a religion or a culture or a sect or a tradition.
It is a life that is full of God and lived in the knowledge of Him. A
Christian without knowledge will denitely still be under the
control of the enemy. And sadly, he is susceptible to fake
prophets and pastors who will use, dupe and drop him.
Dear friends, if there is anything God wants us to have and
boast of, it is the knowledge of Him. Look at
“23 Thus says the LORD: “Let not the wise man glory in
his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
nor let the rich man glory in his riches
24 But let him who glories glory in this, That he
understands and knows Me, That I am the LORD,
exercising loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness
in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the LORD.
I believe you can see and understand the scripture above.
One of the misfortunes we face in the Christendom is boasts
on fame, riches, inuences, material possessions,
connections and other trivial things that don’t really count in
the realm of Godhead. But here, God says if there is going to
be any reason for your boast at all, let it be that you KNOW Me.
Your riches, might, wisdom (of the world) are not reasons to
Before You Go For It
Before you set to go for anything in life, make sure you have
the knowledge of it. It will prepare you for whatever challenge
you are going to face. Paul said the Israelites have zeal for
God but not according to knowledge – Romans 10:2. It means
one can desire to do or have but lacks knowledge. In fact one
may be a pastor, bishop or general overseer and yet lacks
knowledge. One can claim to be serving God but in pure
ignorance. One can even be zealously ignorant in the service
of God. Hmmm, that’s terrible.
Some go into relationship without knowing what it entails, and
that is why they quit when they should not, and remain in it.
when they should not. Many marriages collapse for lack of
knowledge. If you don’t have the knowledge of what it means
to be a father, husband, condant and companion, you can
never sustain and enjoy marriage. Same way a woman who
does not know what it means to be a mother, helper, and wife
will by herself scatter her home.
You want to go into business, ministry, career? Go for
knowledge. When you acquire it, it helps to stick with it and
build it into success.
Knowledge saves money, you know? So friends, let’s go for it.
As much as we can get. It saves wastage. It saves time. It
helps to run and win. It gives you light and makes darkness
disappear. It helps you build more capacity for leadership at
home, in the church, at work and any other place. See friend,
knowledge gives your life a shape and a restructuring. It
connects you to people of same dream and passion. It
enlarges your coast. Oh, this is very interesting; knowledge
makes you know who to disassociate from. There are people
you don’t need to walk with, not because you hate them but
simply because they don’t t into your destiny or calling.
Knowledge helps you to avoid them and move on.
Darling friend, what makes it very easy is that knowledge is not
an inborn, we acquire it. So you don’t need to be intimidated
by a friend or relative or partner who is operating in some kind
of knowledge which you do not have. You can seek for it and
get it and use it and eat the fruits thereof.
NOW, HOW DO I GET KNOWLEDGE?
Constant studies bring knowledge. All you just have to do is to
research more and study more. The more you study, the more
you load in knowledge, and the more you apply it, the more
you become powerful, free, enriched, and the greater a leader
you will be.
One thing you would not want to do but you really should
know is that “you stop knowing the day you stop studying”.
And I believe you will never dare to stop knowing. So I
encourage you to study more.
Bible again establishes that it is the knowledge of God that
makes us know that all things have been made available for
“His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life
and godliness, through the KNOWLEDGE OF HIM who
called us by glory and virtue” – 2 Peter 1:3
Knowing that God has called you by glory and virtue, you will
never have the sense of an ordinary man. You will live with the
consciousness that you have all things for life and godliness.
Dear friend, let me conclude with this.
Once again, it is expedient to know that knowledge
acquired without a use will make you remain at a spot.
You will be as one who does not have it at all.
In everything you desire to do in life, make knowledge
your priority. Physical power will do so little, but
knowledge and power will do so great. You can get all
the knowledge you want as much as you go for it.
Friend, let’s get knowledge and turn our worlds
around for good.
