Surrounding Knowledge – Half 1
By Margaret D. Mitchell
Week of September 20, 2020
The Lord revealed to me that He’s bringing His folks into a brand new gentle, free from final season strongholds that blocked them from receiving larger revelations of God and as soon as twisted communication with others.
God has opened a portal of breakthrough, and it is a new starting for them.
The place there was an appreciation of The Spirit of Knowledge, The Lord is delivering His beloved from their long-suffering right into a “surrounding knowledge.”
Those that have come into God’s fact and made Him their heart, will now be favorably highlighted on centerstage of their divinely-assigned areas of affect.
To be gentle.
To share the identical revival now we have obtained.
We should do not forget that we’re blessed to be a blessing.
Saved to expertise God and do good works as led by His Spirit of Knowledge (Ex 31:1-11).
Deuteronomy 4:6-8 NLT remind us that God will maintain His beloved folks earlier than nations as a shining witness to His Nice Identify and Kingdom, as we proceed to rigorously obey His instructions on this promised land. These verses say:
“Obey them utterly, and you’ll show your knowledge and intelligence among the many surrounding nations. Once they hear all these decrees, they may exclaim, ‘How clever and prudent are the folks of this nice nation!’ For what nice nation has a god as close to to them because the LORD our God is close to to us at any time when we name on him? And what nice nation has decrees and rules as righteous and truthful as this physique of directions that I’m providing you with in the present day?”
As The Lord delivered our hearts from strongholds of false pride, He postured us to obtain His readability and clever understanding on a brand new degree with an outward goal: to attract others to Him.
King Solomon understood this Kingdom-building impact.
1 Kings 4:29 MSG tells us that “God gave Solomon knowledge—the deepest of understanding and the biggest of hearts. There was nothing past him, nothing he couldn’t deal with…He turned well-known amongst all the encircling nations…Despatched by kings from everywhere in the earth who had heard of his fame, folks got here from far and close to to hearken to the knowledge of Solomon.”
The knowledge that God gave Solomon showcased God. It “outclassed the vaunted knowledge of clever males of the East, outshone the well-known knowledge of Egypt. He was wiser than anybody…He created three,000 proverbs; his songs added as much as 1,005. He knew all about crops, from the large cedar that grows in Lebanon to the tiny hyssop that grows within the cracks of a wall. He understood the whole lot about animals and birds, reptiles and fish” (1 Ki four:29 MSG).
God’s knowledge is a present that offers His folks—those who will steward it properly—a good benefit.
Proverbs 12:28 TPT tells us that “Ample life is found by strolling in righteousness.”
The Spirit of Knowledge leads us into plentiful life, drawing us nearer to our resurrected Lord and His methods.
God alone made Solomon’s coronary heart righteous, well-known and rich to develop His Kingdom on earth by drawing others to Him.
Jesus was our excellent instance.
Isaiah 11:1-3 AMPC say, “AND THERE shall come forth a Shoot out of the inventory of Jesse [David’s father], and a Department out of his roots shall develop and bear fruit. [Isa. 4:2; Matt. 2:23; Rev. 5:5; 22:16.] And the Spirit of the Lord shall relaxation upon Him–the Spirit of knowledge and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and would possibly, the Spirit of information and of the reverential and obedient worry of the Lord–And shall make Him of fast understanding, and His delight shall be within the reverential and obedient worry of the Lord…”
Moses and Joshua obtained and operated on this identical Spirit of Knowledge.
Deuteronomy 34:9 AMPC tells us, “And Joshua son of Nun was stuffed with the spirit of knowledge, for Moses had laid his fingers upon him; so the Israelites listened to him and did because the Lord commanded Moses.”
So, we see right here that the Spirit of Knowledge is linked with obedience for all followers, together with leaders. Godly knowledge is what holds an obedient military collectively as we enter into and occupy our promised land by His dominant Spirit.
So, associates, my prayer for you is Ephesians 1:17-19 AMPC, which say, “[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He might grant you a spirit of knowledge and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] within the [deep and intimate] data of Him, By having the eyes of your coronary heart flooded with gentle, in an effort to know and perceive the hope to which He has referred to as you, and the way wealthy is His wonderful inheritance within the saints (His set-apart ones), And [so that you can know and understand] what’s the immeasurable and limitless and surpassing greatness of His energy in and for us who consider, as demonstrated within the working of His mighty power.”
To God be the glory.
Be a part of me subsequent week for Half 2 of Surrounding Knowledge.
