My people have destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you may not be priest to me. Because you have forgotten your God’s law, I will also forget you – Hosea 4:6.
There’s doubt that, knowledge or the knowledge of God is indispensable in the lives of people. Anybody who lacks the knowledge of God is bound to fail or perish. Stated below are reasons for the need of knowledge:
1.Knowledge Is The Key To Stability.
”Everyone therefore who hears these words of mine, and does them,I will liken him to a wise man,who built his house on a rock. 25, The rain came down,the floods came, and the winds blew,and beat on that house ; and it didn’t fall, for it was founded on the rock.” – Matthew 7:24-25
2. Knowledge Brings Inner Strength.
”And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall He corrupt by flatteries; but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. – Daniel 11:32.
3. Knowledge Delivers
Apparently, nobody will go to the zoo and deliberately try to swim in the ponds of crocodiles because he knows the danger involved. ”A hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbour; but the through knowledge shall the just be delivered.” – Proverbs 11:9
ADVICE: Seek the knowledge of God and His word above everything else in your life and always put the knowledge of God(word of God) you have into practice( See Psalm 138:2 and Matthew 7:24-25).
