The following is from Jerry Savelle:
What if I told you the biggest key to your success or failure was knowledge? Have you ever made a bad or embarrassing decision just because you didn't know any better? I know I have. When you lack knowledge about something, it is very easy to make bad choices.
Look at this warning from Hosea:
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6 (KJV)
Notice how it doesn't say a lack of finances. It doesn't say people are destroyed for a lack of talent or time or family relationships. It says the "lack of knowledge" – but having the knowledge of God operating in your life can produce supernatural results in your life.
Many people are praying for money when they need to pray for knowledge. With the knowledge of God, you can turn $25 into $25,000.
Likewise, many people are praying for breakthroughs and deliverance when they really need God's knowledge about what to do. When you KNOW the truth, it will set you free!
The knowledge of God should be the primary pursuit in your life. God is not withholding His knowledge from you. He gave you the Bible to reveal His knowledge to you.
Look at Paul's prayer for the believers in Colossae:
…We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding…and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better. Colossians 1:9-10 (NLT)
That is my prayer for you today. I'm praying that you will have complete knowledge of God and His will for you, and that it will cause you to produce good fruit in every area of your life.
