“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” John 8:32
LIGHT FOR NOW: Your growth is tied to the knowledge of the truth that you have.
When a believer is governed by his senses, he is described as carnal and a baby. His mind is not controlled or regulated by the Word of God but by his own senses. You cannot grow in feelings and still be spiritual. When you are controlled by your senses, whatever the devil throws at you becomes effective and you can never in victory. Your daily victory and growth in life is tied to the knowledge of the truth that you have. The devil will always do his best to keep you out of knowledge. Your freedom in life is connected to the truth you know. When the truth makes you free, you are free indeed. Satan hides in the darkness of the believer’s ignorance in order to perpetuate all kinds of evil. To overcome your senses and operate in dominion, the knowledge of Christ is a necessity. You cannot know God by feelings neither do you know Him by what you see. You are not what you feel. You are what you know and believe.
It is for the purpose of knowing that God inspired the holy men to write the scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16-17). To be thoroughly furnished unto every good work is to be equipped with the right knowledge. The scriptures equip us unto every good work. You are not effective until you know. You are not perfect until you have an accurate and precise knowledge of Christ. The knowledge you have is the source of your spiritual power. The knowledge of the scripture is very important in your walk of faith. When you understand your authority, you have confidence. Your confidence is in the knowledge that you have. Without an accurate and precise knowledge of the person of Christ, you will not be able to fulfill the will of God for your life. Jesus is the perfect will of God. Until you know Christ, you cannot know the will of God.
INSTRUCTION: Get an accurate and precise knowledge of Christ.
Prayer: I am born of God. In this new year, I will show forth his praise, in Jesus Name!
QUOTE: You are not an ordinary man.
