HOSEA 4:6a NKJ 6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
People wonder why many Christians experience so much trouble in life, instead of victory. The reason, according to the Bible, is a lack of knowledge.
The Bible tells us the devil is out to destroy us, but it also makes clear that we can overcome his attacks. The real problem lies with our ignorance of God’s Word.
Real knowledge produces faith. When we really know something, we have faith in it. Then we will act on that knowledge.
The reason God’s people are destroyed by calamity is not because God doesn’t love us, or because God is not able to help us. It is simply that we don’t know the truth. If we really knew the truth, we would act on that knowledge. Acting on true knowledge makes you free — it does not destroy you or put you into bondage.
JOHN 8:31-32 NKJ 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
God’s Word is our instruction book. When we act on it, things will work for us. God allows us to make choices. When we make the right choices, we will be blessed.
Don’t let the devil condemn you with this message. Instead, let it give you hope. You can learn God’s Word and act on it more accurately in the future — and be blessed!
SAY THIS: God gave me the knowledge in the Bible so I could know the truth, act on it, and be blessed.
