LACK OF KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING!
They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are unstable. I said, “You are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes” (Psalm 82:5-7).
When you fail to have knowledge and understanding of the Word of God, you will definitely fall and stumble. In the opening text, the Psalmist says that because they lacked knowledge and understanding of the Word of God, they chose to walk in darkness, even though they are gods and children of the Most High; therefore, they shall die like mere men and fall like the princes. When a Christian lacks knowledge and understanding of God’s Word, he becomes vulnerable to life’s challenges and oppression of the devil.
Whoever fails to have knowledge and understanding of the Word of God, such a person will grope around in darkness and he will never see the light of God. Anyone who gropes around in darkness is destined for destruction. No wonder the Bible tells us in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priests for Me…” Illiteracy to God’s Word is the worst and the greatest disease and affliction of the human race.
In fact, the reason why Apostle Paul succeeded greatly in his ministry more than all his contemporaries was simply because of his knowledge and understanding of the Word of God. That is why he told Timothy his beloved son in the Lord thus, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). There is absolutely nothing on earth that could be compared to the knowledge and understanding of God’s Word. The knowledge of God is full of power and victory in Christ Jesus.
Daily Tip: Be fully equipped with the Word of God in order not to be ignorant of the devil’s wiles and devices. Shalom!
Golden Text: For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and his a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).
