Topic: Understanding – The Mother Of Greatness
Scripture: When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up…. Job 22:29
Thought For The Day: What is not understood is never pursued.
Our anchor Scripture communicates the fact that God exempts and distinguishes His people in the midst of terrible situations of the world.
Beloved, it is critical to understand the exemption and distinction plan God has for His people. Now, why is the understanding of God’s exemption plan necessary?
1. Understanding births pursuit. What is not understood is never pursued. Elisha pursued Elijah because he (Elisha) understood that Elijah was about to be taken up to heaven and there was something with Elijah that he needed – the mantle.
2. Understanding brings success. Any area where understanding is available, success is effortless. Students excel in school when they understand the subjects. On the other hand, other students fail due to lack of understanding of the subjects.
3. Understanding fuels faith. Faith comes by hearing and understanding the Word (Romans 10:17). The understanding of God’s program of exemption and distinction for His people is needed so that our faith can come alive to pursue it.
4. Understanding makes for outstanding existence. Understanding makes people stand out in life; it makes people shine in what they do (Isaiah 60:1).
5. Understanding brings triumph; it brings victory in life and destiny (John 1:5).
Beloved, the truth is, the darker the night, the brighter the glory of light. By virtue of light from God’s Word, I decree that you will not be aware of the darkness in the world; when men say they are cast down, you shall say there is a lifting up, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember This: What is not understood is never pursued.
