We are going to be looking at the word of God from Daniel 11: 32.
“ They that know their God shall be strong and so exploit”.
So according to the verse of the scripture in Daniel 11 : 32, our strength and exploits of faith is not in fasting and prayers as most of the times we think it, it is actually in KNOWING THE LORD!
Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to stab your theology but, we have built this platform as a medium to share the truth and keep ourselves edified with the light of God’s word.
It’s very true, prayer and fasting is important, but much more than that, is knowing the Lord your God!’
So Someone would want to ask me,
What does it mean to know the Lord?
It means to have the understanding of the supremacy, sovereignty and the omnipotence of God.
When you know who God is and what he is capable of doing, you will always triumph in the journey of life, because you now know you have a father who is omnipotent (All Powerful).
You can stay and remain in sickness for long, until the day you realize that the lord God is actually a healer and he can heal any kind of diseases and sicknesses, even to blood sickness and deadly diseases like Cancer and others.
There is a whole lot that knowing God means and offers us in our daily life and living.
For instance, when you know that everything works together for good for those that love the lord and are called according to his purpose, it becomes easy for you to see situations of life where you find yourself as a part of the journey to destiny and breakthrough.
The bible speaking in Malachi 4 : 1, 2 – For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2″But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
Praise the lord…, i really want you to take note of the scriptures above, it says, the earth will burn like an oven, that means things will be difficult everywhere, thing will get so hard and bite really hard on people, economy will go down, recession will come, famine will be everywhere, but it says, for you that “ Fear my name”, that is an amazing promise from the lord, and we all know that the word of the lord is he and amen, whatever he says, so shall he do. One of the things that validate our walk with God and true christianity is a referential fear of God, and that is what the bible is saying in malachi, where we just read now.
So How do I know the Lord, so as to be strong and do Exploits?
- Be Saved : Except a man is born again, he can not see the glory of God, that is the scriptures for you, you can never know the lord until he becomes your father, your God, your lord and your savior, so knowing God in order to command great exploits and wonders on the earth starts with salvation. If you are not born again, you can allow the holy spirit to help you see God as your father right now, see the blood that Jesus shed on the cross for you and ask him to cleanse you from all your sins and shame, and he shall surely receive you.
- Be Addicted to the word of God : The bible talks about, how that, the word became flesh and dwell among us, so the word of God is powerful, it can transform and it carries the ability that is required of us to wrath mighty exploits, we just have to get ourselves acquainted with the word of God. The bible speaking in John 6 : 63b says “ The word I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life. So the word of God carries spiritual entities and life that guarantees exploits. We really need to be word addicts, i have come to realize over the years that we can not pray well and navigate appropriately in prayers unless we are guided and based on the word of God.
- Be Filled with the spirit : The bible makes it clear in John 4 : 24, that “ God is a spirit and they that worship him, must worship him in spirit and in truth, this is very important. To walk with God and make great exploits happen, we must walk with God in the spirit, for you can not hear, receive, perceive and know God too well, except you are in the spirit, God is great and the portal of his knowledge and revelation are deep, i mean too deep for the normal head to comprehend, he solely operates in the spirit, so you must ask for the baptism of the holy spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues so that you can always be in spiritual communication with the elohim and stay connected always.
- Faith : Our knowing God is at the mercy of our faith, i do tell my brethren that, it is very important for us to establish the fact that, we tend to know God the more by his acts and wonders in our lives, not just by his word alone, but the grace and his presence in our lives commands certain results and success to the end that, when we see this success, we are naturally compel to believe in him. And the more hand of God you see in your life, the more you know God, but how do we continually see the hand of God in our lives? By the virtue of our faith, for be it unto the according to thy faith – Matthew 9: 29. Beyond our faith in the possibility of God’s power, we must also pray for the baptism of the spirit of Faith,
What is the Spirit of Faith and what does it do?
The spirit of Faith is an altitude in the spirit, whereby you are so settled about whatever God says he will do, you are so sure of both the written promises of God in the bible concerning your life and also the spoken prophecies of God concerning you, the true is, more often than not, there is always a miracle, the supernatural is provoked better and stronger in any atmosphere of Faith.
Faith atmosphere is a miraculous atmosphere, and the mighty acts of God is what propel men to come into the place of his knowledge, to reference and acknowledge him continually as God and this is what brings about exploits in our life.
It is very essential that we know the lord,
For instance; when you know that Tithes and offering are compulsorily to be brought into the house of the lord, and you know that Malachi 3 :3 promises that the windows of heaven will be opened and there will be an outpouring of God’s blessing to the end that there will not be room to contain it, and the devourer shall be rebuked for your sake, this is enough a secret key in the scriptures that guarantees wealth and prosperous living for any believer all around the world.
But finally, beyond all that as been said in this article, if you really want to know the lord, you have to be PASSIONATE! Passion is a propeller of knowledge and reality, remember the scriptures says – As the deer, panteth after the water, so my soul longeth after thee – Psalm 42 : 1.
So that’s a proof that seeking to know the lord comes with a panting and hunger, it must be a passionate and deliberate approach, so as to draw attention of heaven, there is nothing more beautiful than when you are passionate about knowing the lord and God by the power of his spirit begin to visit you and make himself known to you in various ways – This is the very best way to know him, remember – He made his ways known to Moses and his acts to the children of Israel – Psalm 103 : 7.
I pray that in the name of JESUS the son of the living God, you shall have a die hard passion and panting after the lord, you shall seek, love and find him with the whole of your heart, both from now and forever in Jesus name, the Lord bless you.
