Verse Of The Day : … but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Daniel 11:32
Thought of The Day : If there’s no knowledge of God there can never be exploits for His kingdom.
LISTEN : Passion drives achievement. Without passion focus would be broken; and where focus is broken it’ll be difficult to achieve anything worthwhile. In the same way, to do anything great for God you must have passion for divine knowledge. What you know often determines what you can do. And what is revealed is key to what you can manifest. You can’t possibly undertake anything serious for God if you lack divine knowledge. If there’s no knowledge of God there can never be exploits for His kingdom. Kingdom exploits is to achieve great feat for God’s kingdom in the earth. It therefore follows that, your knowledge of God determines your relationship with Him. You can’t do much for Him if you don’t know much about Him. The deeper your revelation about God the more likely your exploits for Him. No doubt, the pressure we children of God face in the world will either result in staying dedicated to God, or renouncing Him. Those who are not strong and committed will renounce Him when the going gets tough. The truth is, no person can stand pressure in the name of God when he or she is chicken – hearted. We need to be determine and dogged to be the kind of people God wants us to be for His kingdom. My dear, you’re to be on fire for God. What does it mean to be on fire for God? It means to sustain one’s commitment and dedication to God (Daniel 3:16-18); to keep burning the incense of prayer; to do exploits for God and to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ with passion (see Acts 8:1-8,40). But what creates the atmosphere of being on fire for God? The atmosphere for being on fire for God is created through love and fear of God; spiritual knowledge; self-discipline; right association, etc. My dear, God wants you to be on fire for Him. So, strive to catch this fire now and always; for this is the time to offer your best to God. When you’re on fire for God you can’t stop burning for Him. Remember, deeper knowledge of God would trigger passion for kingdom exploits. Be wise
