“…but also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge…” 2 Peter 1:5-7 (NKJV)
Having spoken about the importance of adding to your faith, one thing that you must add to your faith is knowledge. Knowledge is something that is greatly needed to empower your faith. The Bible in Proverbs 11:9, says “…the hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbour, but through knowledge the righteous will be delivered…” Meaning when a man has knowledge, he will be delivered from whatever problems or challenges he finds himself. When he is equipped with knowledge, he will fight his battles with precision. But when a man has no knowledge of how to fight his battles or go about the challenges he is faced with, he will end up struggling for too long. Therefore, it is important that as you journey in your Christian walk, that you crave for knowledge in different areas of life. And something about knowledge is that, the Bible says “…a man of knowledge increases strength…” Proverbs 24:5 (NKJV). Meaning when you add knowledge to your faith, it increases your strength and puts you in a place of advantage. Therefore, it is important that you begin today to go for knowledge. Get to know more about the things you pursue and know how to go about them. Do not be like some folks out there who don’t care about knowledge. No matter what you say, they do not think knowledge is important but yet they keep going through a lot of challenges in their lives because of the lack of knowledge. Beloved, you are better than that because you are a believer and the spirit of excellence is at work in you.
Now, the question is what kind of knowledge are you supposed to go for? It is both spiritual knowledge and knowledge regarding whatever pursuit that you have or the challenge you are facing. But majorly knowledge of God and His word is very important for empowering your faith walk. In Proverbs 2:6, the bible says “…the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding…” So if you truly want your faith to be operative, add knowledge to it and you can be sure to see yourself move from glory to glory in your faith walk. This little act can go a long way to bring you victories in the challenges of life. Praise God!


If you truly want your faith to be operative, add knowledge to it and you can be sure to see yourself move from glory to glory in your faith walk!


Heavenly Father, I thank you for the knowledge you brought to me today, the zeal to add to my faith is activated and as I do that, my faith is empowered for great works and exploits in the name of Jesus. Amen!
