“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…..”
                                                                                                         Hosea 4:6

When a person acquires knowledge and has no sense of purpose, it only leads to pride and arrogance. When a sense of purpose and direction is attached, knowledge leads to humility and servitude is the offshoot. This enhances the life of both the giver and the recipients. The writer in Ecclesiastics 7:12 present money and knowledge as defenses but ends up speaking highly of wisdom the only one that gives life to the one who has it.

Knowledge is power! With temerity, I say to know is to be free. As long as the sort of knowledge is applicable to your life and circumstances, it has power. The change that occurs when Knowledge is applied is significant in that it sends a beam of freedom through a person’s life. The radiant liberty which Knowledge brings is seen in every development that goes on where it is applied. 

Current events show there is a reawakening of great minds from all over who are not only reading and searching for solutions but also writing their thoughts into books. The winds of change that is blowing is not confined to only one subject matter but to every facet of life. The twenty-first century has come with its own kind of Knowledge. The explosion of social media gives anyone a certain  kind of leverage on anything the desire to pursue. Accessing Facebook, twitter, Myspace, LinkedIn or any other will give you a wealth of knowledge which hitherto wasn't common. Even if they were, it would have been very expensive. It’s said the scarcest commodity in the twenty-first century will be human attention. However knowledge will be the cheapest and anyone desirous of greatness will have it for free if only they know where to access it.

There are two things you should always seek to control- your knowledge and finance. When anyone controls anyone of these you will forever be a slave. You can never underestimate the power that whoever controls knowledge has. In George Orwell’s book “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, we read the government of that time had absolute power over what the knowledge its  citizenry had. Even their language was termed “newspeak”. New words were coined to suit the leadership of that time. This was used to control their everyday life and make them slaves to the dictates of their government.

God recognises the superiority of knowledge and gives it credence. We are told that He founded the earth by wisdom and by knowledge He established it. Until a person pursues knowledge, they will forever be subjected or carried away by the whims of any circumstances. You have been created to be the master of your circumstances and you can do so through the acquisition of the right kind of knowledge. Never forget you are forever shackled until you break free with the knowledge you have. This is the place where you take charge over what you see and hear. 

The term “garbage in garbage out”, implies a person’s ability to decipher which knowledge is needed and what is not. You don’t have to buy into anything you see or hear. The worse will be either to listen or look but you should do yourself the favour and have a choice. Progressive Knowledge is everywhere yet it takes the determined individual to find it. You can never live a life devoid of knowledge. Seek knowledge and apply the knowledge. Applied knowledge is power!!

Yours In His Service

Question:- What does "applied knowledge personally mean to you? Which areas of your life do you need knowledge? How have you or do you intend to use Knowledge? Your comments will be very appreciated. 

Prayer:- Father in the name of Jesus help me seek the right kind of knowledge that will enhance my life. I thank you for the divine knowledge that emanates out of the study of your word. Amen
