THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IS POWER!
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding (Proverbs 4:7).
There is power in knowledge especially the knowledge of God in life. When a Christian fails to have the knowledge of God, he lives a life of darkness and bondage. The knowledge of God is power for your victorious living in Christ Jesus. The Bible says in the opening text that wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the knowledge of God is power in life. The knowledge of God gives power for your victorious living in life. God’s knowledge is indeed man’s eternal wisdom in life forever.
The reason why many destinies and lives are destroyed as a result of life’s challenges is because of lack of knowledge in life. That is why the Bible says in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me…” Therefore, whenever a Christian rejects the knowledge of God, he constantly experiences doom and rejection in life. Samson’s story in the Bible is a vivid case study of what lack of knowledge can cause in one’s life (Judges 14-17). Hence, the knowledge of God is of course full of power in life forever.
Apostle Paul knew the importance of knowledge and he applied it appropriately in his life and ministry. He was never a member of Jesus Christ’s disciples, yet he achieved greatly in the ministry because of his knowledge in Christ Jesus. That is the reason why he told Timothy his beloved, “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). In fact, whenever a Christian learns to accept the knowledge of God, he becomes diligent in life, approves by God and a worker who rightly divide the word of truth in life. The knowledge of God is full of divine wisdom and power for victorious Christian living in life forever. Happy International Literacy’s Day Celebration!
Daily Tip: Every Christian should sincerely desire the knowledge of God because it is the power for his victorious Christian living in Christ Jesus forever. Shalom!
