An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered – Proverbs 11:9
In Matthew 22:29, Jesus said, “Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures…” He’s letting us know that the reason people make mistakes and go wrong in their choices and actions is their ignorance of God’s Word. Those who lack accurate and relevant spiritual information from God’s Word have unwittingly programmed themselves for failure in life.
A man’s problem is not anything but what he doesn’t know. In other words, your limitation in life is your lack of relevant and accurate knowledge of God’s Word; for when you get to know, that knowledge delivers you. Knowledge is power! I’m talking about knowledge of God’s Word. The Bible says, through it, shall the just be delivered; not from trouble or from the devil but into their inheritance. Your problem is not the devil; it’s your ignorance and lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6).
This is the reason you find some Christians who are sick and diseased in their physical bodies, or those who are broke financially and suffering terribly. It’s not because the devil is powerful, for he is not. It is the result of their ignorance of God’s Word. The Bible never said God’s people perish because the devil is powerful, but for ignorance: “My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge…” (Hosea 4:6). Ignorance is the reason many of God’s children are living below their calling.
Everything you’ll ever need in your life, has already been provided you in God’s Word; so search and study the Word. Your success, promotion, increase, progress and prosperity all depend on it. Inundate your spirit and bombard your mind with the knowledge of the Scriptures on a daily basis and watch your life grow from glory to glory and from success to success.
