“but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” Daniel 11:32b
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6
I get a lot of emails and correspondence from people asking me to pray for them and I love receiving those messages. I am baffled when I receive messages from long term believers on the basics of the faith like baptism, salvation, basic prayer, etc. This scares me because I then realize that a lot of believers get saved and do not bother to grow beyond that.
Doing exploits for the Kingdom requires knowledge and there is no shortcut to gathering it. You have to set aside time to deeply study the Bible and to walk with the Holy Spirit daily. Not gathering this knowledge leads to destruction and the child of God ends up being no different from the unsaved person in the world.
Make up your mind today to consciously seek the knowledge of God that is in the Word of God. It would save you!
“but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.” II Peter 3:18
