My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you [the priestly nation] have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you that you shall be no priest to Me; seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.” Hosea 4:6 AMPC
We loose spiritual battles because of a default on our part. Jesus Christ is obtain victory on our behalf but for us to walk in it we need knowledge. God Almighty wants to impart knowledge to us as we desire fellowship with Him.
When the servant of the man of God rose early and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was around the city. Elisha’s servant said to him, Alas, my master! What shall we do? [Elisha] answered, Fear not; for those with us are more than those with them. Then Elisha prayed, Lord, I pray You, open his eyes that he may see. And the Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:15-17 AMPC
The servant was afraid because he lack spiritual insight. Fear is the first sign of defeat. His fear was born out of ignorance and lack of knowledge. That’s why knowledge in God’s word is very important for us to walk in victory. When Elisha prayed for him his eyes was open and the fear was replaced with confidence. Our confidence in God word will cause us to experience victory always.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. Let the eyes of my understanding be enlightened that I may know how to live a life of victory in Jesus name. Amen
