2 Peter 1:2 (KJV) Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord
Sandra accepted the Lord when she was a teenager, but she didn’t begin to grow in the knowledge of the Lord until she was 26 when she attended a convention and the preacher spoke about the knowledge of God and the numerous benefits, that was when Sandra now wanted to grow in the knowledge of God. Before that day she heard the sermon on knowing God, she was a very religious and pious Christian, but she had no personal relationship with the Lord. She said a prayer every morning when she woke up and said another every night before she slept.
But now that she realized that the Lord is a person that she can know personally, and her ability to be strong and do exploits are tied to her knowledge of the Lord, she started taking out time to pray and study the word. She was now more committed to spending time with the Lord through prayers and personal Bible study. As a result of this, Sandra observed that she was no more as fearful as she used to be, and was no more as sickly as she used to be.
The secret of our strength as believers is knowing the Lord. Being a believer without knowing the lord personally is like being a student without knowing how to read and write.
Go into this year being deliberate and intentional about knowing the Lord. Scripture says draw near to God and He will draw near to you (see James 4:8, Jeremiah 29:12-13). You are the one to start the process of drawing near before the Holy Spirit takes over.
Prayer: Lord, let this year for me be characterized by knowing you more and walking in your mighty power. Amen.
