I believe that many of the things that we suffer as Christians and attribute to God’s sovereignty/control (e.g. sicknesses, business deals going bad, etc) are actually as a result of inadequate knowledge; inadequate knowledge of who we are in Christ & what we have in Him.
It’s not really the prayers that we make that set us free, but rather the truth that we KNOW that sets us free, & Jesus said that He is the Way, the Truth, & the Life. Therefore, the more of Jesus we know, the more we understand who He is, why He came, & what He accomplished, the more freedom we walk in.
Hosea 4:6 NKJV
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…
John 8:32 NKJV
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
John 14:6 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…
John 3:16 NLT
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
John 17:3 NLT
And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.
Proverbs 4:5-8, 20-23 NKJV
Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.
