Lack of Knowledge

Hosea  4:6 - My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me, seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Do Christian people have a lack of God's knowledge? Are we seeking God with all our heart? Seeking him for answers to our problems and questions about his word? You may think this scripture in Hosea is Old Testament teaching and does not pertain to us today but let us see what the New Testament says about gods laws. 

Now according to Hebrews 8:6 Jesus Christ is the mediator of a better covenant which was established upon better promises. Jesus has become our high priest who is set on the right hand of the throne of majesty on high. In verse10 of Hebrews chapter 8 God said I will put my LAWS into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people. 

That is the beauty of the new covenant. We now have a personal God! If we know Jesus his spirit lives in us. He is the precious Holy Spirit. We are not to quench his spirit. When we do, satan can rob us of real spiritual knowledge that only the Holy Spirit can teach us.

Quick knowledge that is gained from using an iPad, cell phone or computer cannot compare to the true knowledge of God. Have you ever had that God moment when a scripture comes alive to you? It is like turning on a light in a dark room. In that moment God's word becomes alive to us and real spiritual knowledge is born in us. He speaks to our hearts. As gods people, are we lacking this kind of knowledge? Are we unknowingly rejecting this knowledge by using electronic devices to replace our relationship with him? I pray not, but it is something to think about.

This devotion was written by the heart of Pat James. Love to all!
