Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because yo have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.
“My people are not just destroyed for lack of knowledge, but they are destroyed for rejecting the knowledge that I have provided for them. It is in knowing Me that they are given the knowledge of how to live their lives in a world that is turned upside down. The world offers nothing but worldly wisdom, but I offer the knowledge of understanding and spiritual wisdom that sees the root and source of each problem and how to apply My word to solve the problem. My people have sought knowledge from the wrong source and now are suffering the consequences of misplaced trust. They have sought life through their own means, even though their knowledge without Me is limited. They have sought to live life through their own understanding, instead of coming to Me, the giver of life who created them and knows all about them. If my people will turn back to Me, the giver of life, the Master Builder, and pattern their lives on My principles they will experience true success. But if they continue to choose the world’s way that exalts self and looks out for only their best interests, they will fall and suffer defeat. My ways are genuine, tried and proven true, established on righteousness. Their ways are selfish, self-centered and consider only what they need to live and love their lives, living only for today with no consideration for the future. Do not allow the world to press you into it’s mold, Child. Seek My face, turn to Me and instruct My people to live according to My principles and they will succeed, for I am the One who gives them the power to make wealth. I am the One who leads them into healing and wholeness. My ways lead to life in abundance. Be courageous and do not fear; look unto Me and live!”
Father God, I turn to You this morning for direction for my life and how to help others find the directions they need in life. Father, You know the way each one of us takes in our own personal lives. I pray that, by Your Spirit and through Your word, You will direct us in the right way. Help us to seek You above all that we see around us and before looking to outside sources for help. Father, may we always pray first and look into Your word before applying any worldly knowledge that might be available to us. Lord, show us how to lean upon You and learn from You so we may live successfully in this world and as a witness to Your goodness! May we be a light shining into the darkness to direct others to You so they can find life in abundance as well! Thank You for providing for our every need, whether it is for financial needs, or for healing, emotionally or physically, or for relationships, Father, You hold the key to success in all areas of life. May we not be guilty of perishing for lack of knowledge or for rejecting the knowledge that You have placed within our hands. Create within each one of us a desire to seek Your ways before our own and to put into action Your principles in our lives that we may live out the fullness of Your plan for each one of us. Thank You, Father, for hearing my prayer this morning! To You be the honor and glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
