STRENGTH AND SUCCESS ARE PRODUCTS OF KNOWLEDGE
“… but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” Daniel 11:32 NKJV
All the exploits that Daniel and his friends did in the foreign land were due to what they knew about their God.
Succeeding with God, we use two kinds of knowledge. The intellectual knowledge, and the experiential knowledge. The intellectual knowledge is the one that is communicated to us through teachings and personal studies. Such is the reason for: _*”So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”*_ Romans 10:17 NKJV. And, _*”that which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life— the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us”*_ I John 1:1-2 NKJV. Acquired knowledge and experiential knowledge! You need the two; to be strong and to succeed.
What you know about your God, through teachings, or by personal experience, will determine the kind of results you will be getting! So, spiritual stamina and exploits are ultimately byproducts of knowledge. Jesus said: _*”Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”*_ Matthew 11:29 NKJV
