Topic: Don’t Be Ignorant [TREM Devotional 10 February 2019]
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children”. Hosea 4:6 (KJV)
God is not unrighteous. It is not God’s will that one person succeeds and the other fails. It is not His will. If you are a child of God, you are already born into success by your birthright. You are born into achievement. You are born into greatness. You are already born into it. It is not about to happen. It has already happened!
All truth is parallel. Just like in the natural, when Prince Charles was born into the royal family in England, he didn’t have to think if he’s royalty or not; You know why? It is because he was born royalty. In the same vein, as a believer, the moment you gave your life to Christ, you were born into royalty, so you don’t begin to think, am I royalty or not? No! You just know that you are and start to act like it. It is abnormal to begin to think: Am I royalty? Am I a child of God? Do I own everything my Father has? If you are still thinking like that, it means you don’t know your identity.
When God’s people don’t understand this, they are destroyed. It is not because the devil is more powerful; but because they are ignorant of their rights and privileges in Christ. Ignorance is the believer’s greatest enemy. I declare you will not be ignorant in Jesus name.
For the next few days, we will be looking at salient truths that will help you as a member of the family of God. It is my prayer that you will not only read, but you will internalize and practice these truths; because it is the truth that you know (that you have become one with and you walk in) that will set you free.
