“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession”. Hebrews 4:14
LIGHT FOR NOW: The precise knowledge of Christ makes a huge difference in the life of a believer.
It is disheartening for people who call themselves believers to be perpetual complainers! God had made all necessary provisions for you to live. It is your responsibility to make your life comfortable. God had put everything in place for you to harness and address your needs.
Let it be well known to you that God is not responsible for your suffering, as some folks erroneously assert! 1 John 1:5 says “This is the message which we have heard of him, and declared unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all”. Darkness are things and situations which do not be-speak the glory of God. Poverty, sickness, lack and such sorrowful situations cannot be associated with God. These negative trends can only be traceable to lazy, unproductive men, who have refused to appropriate God’s provisions for them. It is interesting to note from today’s text, that at Jesus’ resurrection, Christ cleared the airways so to speak, so your prayers can no longer be hindered! When you speak to God in prayer, remember that Christ is not in the Levitical order. You must of a necessity, recognize Him in His office, this entails aligning your words in accordance with what He has done, and is doing as your High Priest.
Do you know that Christ intercedes for your ignorance and has compassion for you, so you can come to the accurate knowledge of God? Yes, that is what He does as your High Priest. You cannot relate with or receive from God in your ignorance. In knowledge, Hannah had a mouth-closing testimony. The account of 1 Samuel 2:1-3 states “And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the Lord, mine horn is exalted in the Lord: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation. There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God. Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let no arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.’ In salvation, there are engagement and joy.
Hannah recognized that the Lord is a God of knowledge. You cannot fail in what you know. Hannah knew God, hence, she did not fail. Walking into salvation is not all there is; you must know what is obtainable to make your life meaningful. How well do you know your High Priest? The precise knowledge of Christ makes a huge difference in the life of a believer.
In all you know, endeavor to have an accurate knowledge of your High Priest – Jesus Christ.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, thank you for standing in the gap for me, in Jesus name.
QUOTE: You cannot fail in what you know.
