Blessings Of Knowing The True God - Pastor E.A. Adeboye

"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)

It is popular amongst Christians to tell tales of our lifestyle before we became familiar with the true God. Many confess living in captivity to various gods who ruled over them with an iron fist, through the observance of ridiculously costly practices in terms of time and money. These gods include expensive lifestyles, unnecessarily generous entertainment, un-godly custom, wasteful pastimes, membership of exclusive clubs and fraternities, etc. Furthermore, some were conquer by addiction and therefore were controlled by alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, smoking, nightlife, and other risky habits. Worse still, many were enslaved to doctrines, taboos, cultism, idols, and devilish spirits. These gods exercise their influence on people in several ways, as a result of which many fall into different sins, setbacks, stagnancy, sickness, demonic possession, fruitlessness, indebtedness, bankruptcy, failure, and death. Job 5:7 says, “man is born unto trouble” and Job 14:1 says: “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” I prophesy to anyone that is encountering one trouble or the other in this world, God will show mercy and deliver you today in the name of Jesus.

The Almighty God is fully conscious of human helplessness in situations of life, therefore, out of love, He gave Jesus as a solution to anyone that will accept Him as Lord and Saviour. This is the importance of the declaration of Jesus in Matthew 11:28 & 30 that says: “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest... For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

This passage is a clear proposal to anyone that is toiling under the heavy yoke of the devil, anyone that is persecuted or in servitude, anyone encountering stagnancy or fruitlessness, and anyone that needs physical, mental, or spiritual healing. Jesus says, “come unto me and I will give you rest from all your troubles.” Come to Jesus today for redemption from the stronghold of sin, addiction, and all kinds of immorality. Come to Jesus and He will put an end to your problems, disappointments, and failures. Come to Jesus and He will turn your sorrows into joy.

Knowing the true God, therefore, translates to salvation from sin and deliverance from evil. It is not burdensome at all because the relationship is based on the love of God. Everything depends on sincerity to accept the reality of your situation and ask God for help. First, you must accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, after which you must vow to walk away from your sinful lifestyles and embrace a life of holiness. From this moment, the abundant blessings of the Lord will begin to pour into your life without measure in Jesus’ name.

Father, please let me begin to enjoy the blessings of knowing you in Jesus name.
