TEXT: John 17:3
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent._
Since the last two devotionals, there have been various questions. But the majority of the questions centre on how exactly can the knowledge of God help one to do exploits.
The reason is, those that know God have eternal life (John 17:3). The knowledge referred to here is an intimate knowledge that commences with becoming born again. Your first birth is by your parents but the second birth that I’m referring to is by God. This takes place when you receive the Word of His Grace by faith. Jesus says,
…as many as received [Jesus], to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God._ (John 1:12-13).
This immediately creates a Father-Son relationship between God and you. You are awaken to the intimate consciousness of the Fatherhood of God by the Holy Spirit.
This knowledge of God which progresses through fellowship guarantees your excellence and exploits because, those that are born of God (the people that truely know their God) have in them God’s life. The D.N.A. of God (the Divine Nature Attributes of God) is in their makeup. This makes them operate as gods on earth. They are from above and are thus above all (John 3:31). Thus nothing on earth is their match. They can practically overcome anything and succeed in literarily everything they set out to do.
If you have eternal life, the power to do exploit is resident within you. It doesn’t matter the challenges on your way this year. You will move from victory to victory. Don’t worry about your past failures. This life of God can turn failure to success. This life is superior to the devil. It is the very life of God. Therefore the devil can’t withstand the power in it. As from today, become conscious of this very fact that the life of God is in you and as such you are programmed for success, victory, dominion and great exploits.
