“Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord” – 2Peter 1:2
To live a victorious life in Christ, having revelation knowledge of God’s Word is indispensable. The Bible clearly shows that it is your knowledge of God’s Word that’ll put you over in life: “…through knowledge shall the just be delivered” (Proverbs 11:9). Now, this scripture doesn’t merely mean that the just shall be delivered from trouble or oppression; it means through knowledge, the just shall be delivered into his inheritance!
The Bible says “…According as his divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue:” (2Peter 1:3). Can you see that? God has given you absolutely everything that you require to live a successful and prosperous life! But then He says taking advantage of this life is through the knowledge of God. Meaning that, the only thing that separates you from that good life is knowledge! So you see, though God has given you so much in Christ, you can’t begin to enjoy them without knowledge. Knowledge is the key to enjoying your inheritance in Christ Jesus.
The Lord said “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”(Hosea 4:6). In other words, they suffer, are bruised and crushed in life, not for the lack of power or lack of prayer, but for the lack of knowledge. The kind of knowledge God is talking about is not mental assent, but a deep spiritual knowledge that comes from His Word. The only limitation you can have in life is what you don’t know. So remember this: the knowledge of God’s Word is the key; it is the activator you need to move from where you are today to the next level of success, progress and prosperity.
