TOPIC: The Ignorance Of God’s Word – A Threat To Destiny Fulfilment (Seeds Of Destiny 13 June 2021)
Your greatest strength is your light and your greatest threat is your ignorance.
SCRIPTURE: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge… Hosea 4:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your greatest strength is your light and your greatest threat is your ignorance.
In our previous studies, using the lives of Adam and Eve, we have explored some pitfalls that led to the crash of their destiny. This is so we can avoid them.
And today, we are looking at yet another destiny-hindering factor which is the ignorance of the Word of God. This is another pitfall to avoid.
If you look at the conversation between Eve and the devil, there was a lot of ignorance manifested by Eve.
Genesis 3:2-3 says: And the woman said…But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it….
Was that what God said? No! “Touch” was not mentioned at all.
Genesis 2:15 says:
And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
Now, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was inside the Garden. It was part of the trees to be dressed too. If you don’t touch it, how do you dress it? But she didn’t know the Word.
The Bible says:
…Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it (Genesis 2:16-17). That is, you can dress it but don’t eat it.
The problem is, many people carry the Bible but they don’t understand what the Bible carries. Refuse to be such kind of Christian.
Beloved, your greatest strength is your light and your greatest threat is your ignorance. Study and understand God’s Word and your destiny shall not be hindered or corrupted in the Name of Jesus.
Remember this: Your greatest strength is your light and your greatest threat is your ignorance.
Make demands on the spirit of understanding upon your life.
Whenever you study the scripture, ask God to unveil the Voice behind the verses of the scripture to you.
Refuse to think over the devil’s suggestions. Rebuke him by the Word.

PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to understand Your Word. Open my eyes to behold the light in Your Word and let the light swallow up every form of darkness around my life and destiny, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 106-108
QUOTE: Nothing disarms darkness like light. Culled from, “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.
REFLECTION: Miseducation, at times, can be worse than no education. Misinformation, at times, can do more harm than no information. Don’t know things half way. Know things thoroughly. Know what you know and trust God to help you know what you don’t know. Eve knew what God said but not perfectly.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Lord cause you to know those things you need to know that you don’t yet know in Jesus’ Name.
