Today’s devotional is dealing with what the Spirit of Knowledge does to those who have it. The major aim here is, by application, readers of this devotional can become what those who have the “knowledge of the Spirit of the LORD if the seek and search it. This could be reason the Bible says: “An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ears of the wise seeks knowledge” (Prov. 18: 15 English Standard Version). As many as have the Spirit of the knowledge of God, are more spiritually and secularly insightful that any unbeliever. In those days, especially in a country like Nigeria, people thought Christianity was for school dropouts. Overtime, it has dawned on people that people with sound academic quotients are Christians. These people now operate with Spirit of knowledge and changing the world.
Looking into the ministries of some high profile General Overseers in Nigeria with excellent academic performances from schools, we can see how high they are in the content of the Spirit of knowledge. Those known to the author of this devotional are: – Pastor W.F. Kumuyi, he a First Class Mathematics Scholar. Pastor Adeboye holds P.hD. in Analytical Mathematics. Archbishop Oyedepo is a highly ranked Architect. Pastor Paul Eneche and his wife are qualified Medical Graduates, Evangelist Sunday Oguche had Distinction in Business Administration from Benue Polytechnics. The world can see how these people climb up to the pinnacle of achievements.
Christians with the Spirit of Knowledge can read through the minds of those they are relating with and therefore, know how to relate with and handle their cases successfully. Those with the gift of the Spirit of Knowledge prevail in prayers easily. This is because they know how to pray in partnership of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God who knows exactly the thoughts of our minds can be drawn into our hearts by knowledge and takes over the prayer for us (Rom. 8: 26 – 27). It has to be agreed that those operating in the Spirit of Knowledge penetrate the hearts of sinners easily during teaching or preaching because the knowledge the works of sins are divulged to them, darkness and hypocrisy of people is exposed to them. The beloved, let us all seek and search for the Knowledge of God into our hearts!
FATHER, I wish I could have positive insight into the hearts and inner thoughts of people I relate with so as to offer them the heavenly kind of help. I pray that you grant me this favour today in the name of Jesus Christ.
