Before we start looking at the incredible power of knowledge and how it shapes our lives, I will like to establish some facts about knowledge that I feel we all need to know.
- The lack of knowledge is the cause of all problems and sufferings in life:
If you see any man or nation going through so much problem and challenges, it is simply because there is a certain information they do not have or they are ignorant of.
Someone may want to say that some people know what to do but are not doing it. That is true, but I also want us to understand that, it is ignorance that conditions a person to not do what they are supposed to do.
It is ignorance that fuels greed in our political leaders which makes them abandon and not do what they are supposed to do for the citizens and the nation.
- The lack of knowledge is the cause and root of all poverty.
Poverty is simply a result of ignorance. Ignorance is what kills people not lack of money. I am sure some of us have heard of lottery winners who became poor and bankrupt after few months or years because they couldn’t manage the wealth. The truth is that they couldn’t manage the wealth because they don’t know how to.
- Knowledge drives away fear, worry, doubt, suffering, crime, sickness and poverty.
If you want to live a worry free, wealthy, healthy and happy life, all you need is knowledge nothing more, nothing less.
With all these facts established about knowledge, let’s now look at the incredible power of knowledge.Tweet Now Click To Tweet
WHAT IS KNOWLEDGE?
To understand the power of knowledge, we must first understand what knowledge is all about. This is important because one will always find it difficult to comprehend what he or she doesn’t know.
Dictionary.com defined knowledge as; information, and skills acquired through experience or education. In other words, Knowledge is simply a know-how.
THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE.
I personally believe that there is no better place to learn and understand the power of knowledge than in the Bible. Consider what the bible said about knowledge in Hosea 4:6; this is one scripture that shaped my life greatly.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children”.
God did not say sinners are suffering because of knowledge. He said His people, the chosen generations and peculiar people are suffering because they lack the knowledge on how to live the life they desire.
Wait a minute. Does it mean that the house, car and money you don’t have right now is down to a lack of knowledge?
This is incredible. I thank God for using me to release this powerful information. I know this article; ‘the power of knowledge’ will liberate so many people.
God did not end at saying that His children are suffering for lack of knowledge, He went on to say that He will reject you from being a priest. In other words you can’t be a priest or pastor if you lack knowledge.
For years I wondered why God will reject someone for lack of knowledge until I came to realize that you can’t give what you don’t have.
The power of knowledge: How knowledge shapes our life [Vital]Tweet Now Click To Tweet
Hear this and hear well; it is dangerous to rush into starting a church because you think God called you. A lot of people are suffering in ministry because they moved into ministry too early.
Even though you are called, it does not hurt to get a mentor or someone you can learn from. I always tell people that there are lots of things God can’t do for you. For instance, God can’t eat for you, God can’t bathe you. Same is true in ministry.
God can’t approach people for you. God won’t study for you, He can only guide you on what to study. A lot of churches have closed because the pastor though is called, simply lacks the knowledge on how to relate and deal with people.
The power of knowledge cannot be disregarded at all because knowledge is key to success in all works of life.
God also mentioned that He will forget your children. Again you can’t pass on to your children what you don’t know. “Knowledge and ignorance can be passed to others by association or nurture”
A lot of people are poor today because their parents were poor. Their parents who were their first teachers know nothing about wealth creation so they could not teach them anything other than, go to school, get good grades and then get a good job with good retirement benefits.
The power of knowledge in our lives cannot be downplayed. Only fools despise knowledge. A lot of us are one knowledge away from our major breakthrough. Tweet Now Click To Tweet
Consider also what the good book says in John 8:32;
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”.
Hear this and hear it well, it is not the truth you hear or talk about that sets you free, it is the truth you know that sets you free.
Take note of this; the proof that you know something is when you are able to apply it to produce a result. Simply, let’s put it this way, you don’t know a mathematical formula until you are able to use it to solve a problem.
This brings us to the next point. But this time it will come inform of a question.
IS KNOWLEDGE ACTUALLY POWER?
We have all heard the popular saying that knowledge is power. But I want to humbly disagree with that idea. Knowledge is not power.
Knowledge is only a potential power. Knowledge only becomes power when it is applied or enforced to produce a change or result. Like I said earlier, you don’t know a mathematical formula until you are able to use it to solve a problem.
Does a quadratic equation have the potential or ability to solve an equation? Yes. But it only becomes a solution to a problem when it is used to solve a problem.
This article ‘the power of knowledge will not fulfill its purpose of transforming and impacting lives if you don’t apply it into your life.
In other to be free and live a worry free life and a life of abundance, you have to know something. Read books, attend seminars and workshops, listen to messages and watch videos to gain the required knowledge you need to transform your life.
Some of the challenges you are praying for now, the solution will come immediately you decide to sit down and get the required knowledge. Take this from me;
There are somethings, you don’t pray about them. You just need the required knowledge to deal with them.
Thank you very much for reading till the end. Please help us reach more people and impact more lives by sharing the post with friends and loved ones.
You are blessed.
