This is one of the biggest secrets I discovered this year that I am about to share with you. Believe what you are about to read and see your life change overnight.
What is the secret? KNOWLEDGE!
I know you have been told over and over again the importance of reading and acquiring knowledge. Please don’t joke about it. Everything you need is locked inside what I call treasure rooms and each of this treasure room can only be opened with a unique key. Prayer and fasting are good but limited. It doesn’t have the capacity to unlock all of the doors. Schooling is good. But everything you’ll ever learn in school is very limited to your success, especially in the reality of today’s world. Out of 10 treasure rooms, it might be able to open one for you. No matter how hard you try to use it on other doors, it will never open.
I am not just writing to encourage you to pursue knowledge. I am writing to let you know that your destiny and success in life is hinged on knowledge. Everyone without exception is created to succeed. Before God started forming you in your mother’s womb, He first sat on a round table, so to speak, with the host of heaven to decide what you will become in life. After diligent deliberation, they conclude on what your destiny will be and they say, ok, “Let us create him”.
In order to fulfill that glorious destiny, Heaven decided to send you to earth with a unique gift and talent. Not only does Heaven send you to earth with a gift, they make sure everything you’ll need to fulfill your destiny is available on earth. What are the things you need to fulfill your destiny? Here are the basic: SALVATION, MONEY, PEOPLE, and HEALTH.
But all these things don’t fall on your lap at a platter of gold. You must go and get them. And you get them primarily through knowledge.
Do you know that if nobody tells you about salvation or you never read it anywhere, you will never have been saved? And do you realize that there are many going to eternity who never have the opportunity to hear the gospel message? But does that make them escape hell? Unfortunately, the answer is no. The key that will unlock the kingdom of heaven to any man is the knowledge of salvation. Not just having the knowledge, but appropriating it – you need to apply knowledge before it will work. Having a key to unlock a locked padlock doesn’t make the padlock unlock by itself. You need to apply the key to the padlock before it can open.
In the same vein, healing, prosperity and a fulfilled life are attained by discovering and applying the keys (knowledge) that unlock/activate them. You may be destined to be a very wealthy person so you can be a Kingdom financier and yet you can die a pauper if you lack the knowledge that will make you fulfill that purpose.
One knowledge won’t compensate for the lack of another. Everything is available, but you need to get them. It might cost you money. It might cost you sleep. It might cost you time. It might cost you sacrifices. Whatever it will cost, you, dare to pay it.
No single church has all the keys. But you don’t have to be a member of all the churches in the world to get the keys. You can buy or download their tape. You can read their books. You can attend their conference as the Lord would lead you. Being cynical about every pastor that is not your pastor will NEVER help you. One key that will unlock your age-long problem may be inside a book written by the pastor you despised, and as long as you despise him, you may never be free from that problem.
It is the knowledge you lack about yourself that the devil leverage on and uses to destroy you. The Lord has defeated the devil on the cross. The only weapon he is left with is ignorance.
Hosea 4: 6 says, my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Even if the heaven tries to help you, the devil will accuse you of a law you are breaking that warrant your being in that condition.
Remember the devil is the accuser of the brethren.
Finally, may I tell you that the devil also seeks after knowledge? Until the devil knows the secret of your victory, he will never be able to defeat you. The enemy would never have been able to defeat Samson if Samson had not divulged his secret to Delilah. As soon as the secret was leaked, the enemy quickly attacked. And unfortunately for Samson, we had already backslidden when the enemy got to know his secret so it became very easy for them to bring him down.
For your information, the devil knows a lot about you than you think. He knows your weak point. He knows your source of strength and what keeps you going and living a holy life. The devil doesn’t beat about foolishly. He meticulously targets you at your weakest point and he does everything to pull you out from your source of strength so you can have no strength to withstand his attack or resist his temptation.
If Samson had not slept on the lap of the strange woman – Delilah, she would never have been able to cut his hair even if she knew his strength lies there. She probably drugged him or gave him a sleeping pill so she could scrape the hair without him knowing. If Samson had not fallen for Delilah, one thousand of her can never capture him and scrap his hair. With just one blow, they will all scatter. But while brother Samson was cooling off on the lap of a beautiful Delilah, his hair was scrapped.
Let me conclude by encouraging us to strive to hold fast the knowledge that keeps us in perpetual victory in an area and also strive to acquire the knowledge that will free us from our current challenge(s).
I hope this challenges my fellow drama ministers and everyone who desires to fulfill God’s purpose for his life.
