Bible Reading:

“And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”

Daniel 11:32 (KJV)

 THE MESSAGE 

In a world that is inundated with so much evil, the need to arm yourself with all that will enable you to withstand every satanic challenge and at the same time launch an offensive into Satan’s territory cannot be overemphasised. Don’t just sit back and play the defensive; as in football, those who play the defensive too many times lose the match. When the ball is almost always in your half of the field (or “in your 18”, as is said in football), there will be a window sooner or later through which the opponent will score. So don’t allow the game to remain in your 18-yard box. Take the battle to the devil’s territory. Be on the offensive. Attack his territory with boldness.

However, you can only do this when you have confident knowledge of God. The text above reiterates this fact. They that know their God shall be strong and do exploits. You must consciously make an effort to know your God. Only those who know God will be strong. God is not a subject like geography or algebra. He is a revelation. You will know Him when you follow Him. You know God as you study His word, meditate on it, and act on it.

David was the greatest king of Israel, and he told us the secret behind his outstanding achievements as a king. He was always in the temple in order to behold the beauty of the Lord and make inquiries in His presence (Psalm 27:1-4).

In spite of his religious pedigree, Paul also threw his past away in order to pursue the knowledge of God. (Philippians 3:1-14). The success of Jesus on earth hinged on His constant pursuit of God (John 19:30). If you are to make it today, you must pursue God even more. I challenge you to make a quality decision to know Him and see God move in your life.
