Topic: The Power Of Knowledge [Thursday 6, April 2017]
“Therefore My people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge….” (Isaiah 5:13)
There are different types of captivity but the worst type is the captivity of the mind. Satan has the ability to blind the minds of people. However, the pathetic thing for such people is that they may not know how blind they are. A person whose mind is blind may not know exactly how blind his or her mind is. Such a person will not know what he or she has or can do.
One of the tragedies of the church today is that many good people are heading for heaven – and hopefully, they will get there. But while they are in this world, they are living below God’s purpose for their lives because they lack knowledge. There is no substitute for knowledge. You just have to know this.
The Bible says, “By His knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.” (Prov. 3:20) Put another way, if you lack knowledge, your heaven will remain permanently closed. Your deliverance lies in what you know. That’s why the Bible says further, “Through knowledge shall the just be delivered.” (Prov. 11:9b)
What do you know? God did not put you in this world to live below par. Due to lack of knowledge, people who should not have been sick are sick. Because of the absence of knowledge, people are living in abject poverty and under the heavy burden of debt.
What do you need in life? There is something you need to know to be able to get it. The Holy Spirit will lead you to it today. God will put the know-how in you.
Words of Wisdom: There is no substitute for Knowledge.
Confession/Prayer: By the power of the Most High God, I set my marriage, business, job, finances, health, and education free from the power of ignorance. In Jesus name, Amen!
