Both the right and the wrong kinds of knowledge are powerful; the right knowledge has a transforming power but the wrong knowledge has a destructive power.
SCRIPTURE: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Ephesians 4:14
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you know determines your stability in life.
It is crucial to understand that one of the most powerful forces on earth is knowledge. Both the right and the wrong kinds of knowledge are powerful; the right knowledge has a transforming power but the wrong knowledge has a destructive power. When Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the fruit that God told them not to eat, their original destiny according to the creative intent of God was instantly destroyed. On the other hand, when the disciples of Jesus knew Jesus as the Christ, the Saviour of the world, and also had the knowledge of His Word, they were transformed.
Now, let us see how powerful the right knowledge is.
The right knowledge is key to stability. Isaiah 33:6 says, And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times…. So, knowledge gives stability. As a child of God, a business person, civil servant, pastor, etc., what you know determines your stability in life.
The reason many Christians are tossed to and fro by different doctrines from the pit of hell is the lack of the knowledge of God’s Word.
If anyone tells me that he has seen Jesus a thousand times, I will not doubt him, but if he says that the Jesus he saw said something that is contrary to the scripture, I will discard his words; it does not matter how spiritual he claims to be. This is because God never breaks His Word or His principles.
Ignorance, therefore, facilitates instability. An ignorant person is an easily moveable person.
Remember this: what you know determines your stability in life.
- Study the Scripture carefully in order to avoid the wave of deception that is moving in our world today.
- Crave to know God and what He has purposed concerning your life.
