My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. —Hosea 4:6
When you give in to temptation, it is because you have not secured your victory for one of two reasons:
1. You are receiving His Word but choosing not to walk in it. When you know what the Bible says about your situation and walk in the light of that knowledge, you will not fall into temptation. You will see the snares of the devil and avoid them.
2. You are yielding to temptation because you are uninformed of God’s instructions.
We are required to walk in the revelation of the Word, whether we have received it or not. Just because you don’t know the law doesn’t mean you won’t get arrested for disobeying it. People get into all kinds of sin, die of cancer, and live in poverty. Why? Because they are ignorant of the power available to them.
Secure your victory by finding out what God has to say about your situation and then determine to do what He says to do about it.
Lord, teach me Your Word and Your
ways. I will read, study, meditate upon,
and apply Your Word this day in all
that I say and do. Amen.
