Knowing The Scriptures

Woman Reading a Book at Home“Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.”  Matthew 22:29 (KJV)

 Do you realize we can go astray when we don’t know the scriptures and the power of God?  It is not just in knowing the scriptures that we are kept by God but knowing His power also.  We can have head knowledge without power from the Holy Spirit.  It is the Holy Spirit that illuminates the Word of God and gives us revelation to understand it and apply it.   We get deceived easily, and we make wrong decisions from a lack of wisdom.  When we know the power of God, we can avoid doing so much damage in our walk with the Lord.  When we are empowered by God, He delivers us from falling into temptation.  When we are empowered by God, we have the strength to be overcomers through Christ Jesus.  When we are empowered by God, we can avoid falling into a pit, and we will make wise decisions.  When we know the scriptures, we will keep the right company.  When we know the scriptures, we will not be confused about doctrine.  We will not be deceived by sheep in wolves clothing, and we will discern properly.  Knowing the scriptures can save us from a lot of harm and a lot of heartache.  Knowing the scriptures will keep us close to God, help us to be better witnesses and teach us to live a better life that pleases God.  Knowing God’s Word and His power can help us to do exploits for God.

 “Lord help me to keep Your Word so that I don’t stray away.  Teach me Your Word and empower me to serve You better and live a victorious life.”

For His Glory,
