Topic: Don’t Stay Ignorant
Scripture: “An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.” Proverbs 11:9 KJV
Knowledge is very vital to your walking in the success that has been made available to you. So with all your heart, seek to know God and your life shall be transformed. Remember that it is the truth that you know that ultimately sets you free.
It is a shame for any believer to have his or her life manipulated and limited by the enemy. It is not part of the redemption plan of God for you. You were raised up by God and made to sit with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. However, if you do not know your rights and privileges, you will operate in the low lands. But as you read and meditate on the Word of God, your eyes will be enlightened and you will take all that rightfully belongs to you. Then, you will become all that Christ had laboured for. Through knowledge shall the just be delivered!
What do you do when a postman comes to your house with a parcel that is not yours? You return it if it does not have your name and address. So, when the devil comes with his parcel, tell him to pass. It’s not yours! Parcels of sickness, poverty, frustration, fear, intimidation, defeat, failure and pains are not for you as a child of God. Until you know your rights and privileges, you will remain a cheap victim in the hands of the devil. But that is not the plan of God for you.
The devil celebrates in his domain when he finds a believer that is unaware of his rights and privileges. You can still be ignorant while attending church services if you fail to give due attention and practice what is being taught. It is those who continue in the Word as hearers and doers that get to know the truth; they are delivered from ignorance. Arise and be a doer of the Word of God. When you do, the enemy will not cheat you out of your inheritance.
