REVEALED WORD TODAY
SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE
// Read: Proverb 2:1-12, 24:4 //
My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
3 indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
8 for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
9 Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
11 Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you.
12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men,
from men whose words are perverse,
4 through knowledge its rooms are filled
with rare and beautiful treasures.
‘Knowledge’ they say ‘is power’; lack of knowledge destroys (Hosea 4:6). Wise men lay-up knowledge (Proverb 10:14) and it is pleasant to the soul. Spiritual knowledge delivers, gives direction and speed in life. Desire knowledge and you will be wise. A man of knowledge will increase in strength (Prov. 24:5). It was God that gave Daniel and his friends this spirit (Dan. 2:17-20).
PRAYER: Pray for the Spirit of Knowledge.
