One of the major reason why Christians are not living to their full potentials and enjoying the inheritance in Christ is due to the ignorance of God’s Word, that is, the ignorance of the Word will short circuit the power of God in your life, since one cannot have Faith in what they do not know.
What am I saying here? For you to know what God has in store for you, you have to read His word and in this way you will be able to develop Faith and live life to your full potential.
Well, when I received Christ, my life did not change instantly, It took time, you become a new being but it takes time to grow, I like to say, once you are born again, you are generally a baby Christian, when you get deeper into the Word, you grow to adolescence stage, and when you further go into the word, you become an adult Christian. I don’t know which stage you are in but I know, every day is a learning day, and the goal is to get to the highest level ever possible.
Why does the devil want you to be ignorant of the Word of God, he is afraid that you may find out, the kind of power that is within us as Christians, that is, we have three things that we do not know about ourselves, I will write in my next Faith-blog explaining the answers, to the following questions.
1. We don’t know who we are
2. We don’t know what we have
3. We don’t know how to use it.
Before I dwell on all this, I want us to know more about Faith. Faith is all that we will ever need in order to please the Lord. Hebrews 11;6…”No one can please the God without Faith, for whoever that comes to Him must have Faith that God exists and rewards those who seek Him.”
First things first, for you to express your Faith effectively, there has to be knowledge, for Faith will only come to you through the Word. Romans 10:17…..”Faith comes through hearing, and it is by hearing the Word of GOD.”
The thing that stands in our way as Christians is not sin or the devil, no, no, because Jesus dealt with the problem of sin and defeated the devil. Its our ignorance of the Word, and if u think am not on the point when was the last time you meditated on a verse in the Bible? Do not answer me, just talk to your God am not the judge in this.
The enemy comes to take advantage of man’s ignorance, and keeps him in bondage, but the moment the knowledge of God’s Word dawns on that man’s spirit, he will walk out of bondage…..john 8:32…”and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”
It is a fact, that the quality of your life is directly related to the revelation of God’s Word in your spirit.
Let’s do this!
