Title: IS YOUR KNOWLEDGE AN EFFECTIVE ONE?
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you freeJohn 8:32
In 2018, God taught me something with this question. What do you know? You see, knowing is a process, and knowledge is the product. What we know affects what we possess. To know, in this context today, means to have, to intimate with, to be certain of, to be equipped with, to be swallowed up by a certain information or encounter.
When the Bible said that “Adam KNEW his wife”, it meant more than just knowing her as Eve in literal sense (that’s just KJV 16th Century English messing with our minds – Smiles). It, the word KNEW in that context, meant that he got intimate, became one with Eve through intercourse. This “Knowing” always brings a result. And the Bible says, “She conceived and brought forth a son”. Whatever you know that hasn’t brought forth anything in your life, not even a conviction, then you truly don’t know it. This kind of knowledge (whatever it may be called) always has result and produces effect. – Genesis 4:1
Matthew 2 tells us of two kinds of people. One knew only letters while the other knew the meaning plus the implications behind the letters. The Majis (Wise men as we know them) possessed this living knowledge or practical knowledge and came, traveling great distances, moving themselves through diverse inconveniences to come acknowledge/worship the King. They had joy. They could recognize “His Star”, His workings, His signs everywhere. And it (what they knew) pulled at them all the way from the East.
Allow me to submit to you today that what drives your motivation in life is a result of what you have come to KNOW. The question then is: What do you KNOW? Those who knew only the letters also came like the Maji. The difference was that, where the Majis came with joy, bearing gifts, they were coming with fear, worry, anxiety, etc. It’s not going to be enough to just know, you’ve got to get swallowed by it and driven by what you’ve known.
You’re going to cast away all worries and ask, “What am I supposed to know about and in this situation?” At the place of knowing, worries are swallowed up and engulfed by faith praise. They are replaced with joy. Those who know Jesus and the Word recognize His Star, His signs, His assurance and His moves when they see it. These are the elements that make them progress and prosper. – Rom. 8:28, Dan. 11:32
Seek the Lord today to know Him practically via the revelation of His Word to you. You need to know something by guidance. The kind of job to do. The kind of place to be. The step to take that will change your status. Ask for help to know, today. He promises to answer and show you things you never knew before.
Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not knowJeremiah 33:3
