THE KNOWLEDGE OF WHO YOU ARE.
Wednesday, November 25th.
An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just bedelivered (Proverbs 11:9).
Imagine that you carried and were playing with yourneighbour’s one or two-year-old child and he suddenly inflictsa bite on your hand. You see the bite wound but shrug it off asnothing, because he’s only a child. Then while walking away,someone walks up to you and says, “I saw that child bite you; but didyou know the child is HIV positive?”
Suddenly, your demeanour changes; you start speaking intongues and making confessions. In your mind, you think you’re putting your faith to work, whereas you’re actually demonstrating alack of understanding of who you are in Christ. God doesn’t want youat that level.
If you have the knowledge of God and recognise what youhave inside you, and who you are in Christ, you’ll remain unmoved,in spite of the new information about the child. This was what the Apostle Paul knew that made him so different. In Acts 28:3-6, theserpent that bit Paul was a venomous one, and those who werearound him were expecting him to swell and die right there. But theywere baffled to see Paul unharmed. He didn’t even pay attention toit; the Bible says he shook it into the fire and went on discussing the Gospel. Hallelujah!
Someone may say, “Oh, if only I have the kind of faith that Paulhad!” No, it wasn’t faith that Paul demonstrated; it was theknowledge of God at work. He had the knowledge of who Jesus saidthe Christian is. In Mark 16:17-18, Jesus said, “And these signsshall follow them that believe…if they drink any deadly thing, itshall not hurt them….” If any poisonous substance ever finds itsway into your system—whether by accident or by intent— it’ll haveno effect on you.
What you need is the accurate and adequate knowledge ofGod’s Word; this is what puts you over in life. Many don’t have a faith problem, for every one of us has faith (Romans 12:3). The issue istheir lack of understanding of who they are and what belongs tothem in Christ. The knowledge of God’s Word gives you anundeniable conviction of the transcendent life of victory anddominion. This is why you’ve got to study and meditate on the Word every day.

FURTHER STUDY: Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Acts 20:32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
2 Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
