RECOGNIZING THE POWER OF GOODWILL
Blessings comes from God but goodwill of men is required to succeed in our endeavours.
Moses was called by God but He was wise to secure His father-in-law’s goodwill to succeed. Ex.4:17,18; 18:13-27; Num.10:29-32.
David was anointed by God to destroy Goliath but he secured Saul’s goodwill before launching forth. 1 Sam.17:31-37
Gideon was empowered by God to strike the Amalalites but would not go without the goodwill of His father. Judg.6:14-16, 25-32.
As strong as Samson was He sought the support of his tribe’s men to confront the Philistines. Judg.15:9-14
Even Jesus insisted on John the Baptist’s baptism ritual so scriptures might be fulfilled. Matt.3:13-17; Act.13:1-9; Gal.2:9
And Paul the great secured the other apostles’ goodwill to step forth into ministry. Act.13:1-5
KNOWING WHAT YOU OUGHT TO KNOW | Today: 2017-04-26
That which I see not teach Thou me…
The purpose of knowledge is improvement and perfection.
It is those who think they know enough that pride themselves.
Those who actually know usually seek to know more.
There is what you know and there is what you ought to know. 1 Corinthians 8:1, 2
What you ought to know that you are yet to know is what makes you incomplete.
Jesus said to the rich man, “If you’ll be perfect, one more thing remains.”
Job acknowledged, “That which I know not, teach Thou me.”
Paul cried out, “That I may know Him!” Philippians 3:10.
One would wonder, “What more does Paul want to know, having known so much?” Yet he cried to know more.
God responds only to panting, hungry hearts.
Are you panting after God?
What you know is already stale, if you don’t seek to know more, what you know now will lead to your stalement.
