THE SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE: Appropriating the Providence of Grace

And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD

Isaiah 11:2&3

I can pray this because his divine power has bestowed on us everything necessary for life and godliness through the rich knowledge of the one who called us by his own glory and excellence.

2Pet 1:3 (New English Translation)

The Christian life is the only life that is worth living because we have it made. We don’t struggle to live a holy life which is pleasing unto God. We don’t struggle to make ends meet either, becuase God, by “… his divine power has bestowed on us everything necessary for life and godliness…” (2Pet 1:3) That is why it is a life of rest. We are not struggling on our own strength, we are drawing from what God has already made available to us. Holiness is our nature. Its an integral part of us woven into the very fabric our spirit essence! Everything we need for life, health wealth etc has also been supernaturally provided. God tells us the only way to walk in the reality of these providence. It is by getting to know them in our spirit (Philemon 1:6, 2Pet 1:3)

The knowledge we are talking about here is not knowledge of facts or science achievable by observation, experience or association. It is revelational knowledge which only the Spirit of Knowledge can impart into the regenerated spirit of man. This is because “…the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Cor 2:14) That is why God gives us the Spirit of knowledge to reveal those things to us so that we can appropriate them (2 Cor 2:10,12)

God’s people suffer today because they lack this kind of knowledge (Hoseah 4:6). They wind up thinking that God has called us to a life of misery. They even begin to feel they were better off while in the world. Nothing could be farther from the truth! On the contrary, Apart from salvation from eternal damnation, “…We were also giv­en absolutely terrif­ic promises to pass on to you—your tickets to partic­ipation in the life of God af­ter you turned your back on a world corrupted by lust” (2Pet 1:4 MSG).

So when you receive revelation of these promises through the Spirit of knowledge, you will live the life of God here on earth–free from sickness, poverty and spiritual death. Like every manifestation of the Spirit, you submit yourself to this Spirit of Knowledge by demanding for His operation in your life through praying in Jesus Name; studying God’s word and speaking the truth in the word to yourself. Receive revelation in Jesus Name
