“Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.”(2 peter 1:2)
You multiply grace (favour) through knowledge. A sister gave a testimony in church one day. She had been in business for seven years, but nothing seemed to be working and so she packed up the business. But she was in church one day and heard the Word like fire, that “things only work for workers. Until you work, nothing works.” With these word burning in her heart, she went to her husband and borrowed three thousand naira (Nigeria currency), with which she started business all over again. A year later, she could testify thus: “Now, apart from the machines and tools we have as asset, we now have two hundred thousand naira (Nigeria currency) in cash!”
This favour and breakthrough came as a result of the insight she gained from the Word of God she heard that day in church, and which she acted upon. If that knowledge had not come, she would still have been on the floor till now.
“Good understanding giveth favour: but the way of transgressors is hard.”(Proverbs 13:15)
The way of the ignorant is hard ! Knowledge multiplies favour. That sister could not pay her shop rent before knowledge came. But when understanding came, it opened the door of favour unto her.
Ignorance equals hardship. There is no mountain anywhere; every man’s ignorance is his mountain. So, awake thou that sleepest, arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. Light (knowledge) will always attract favours, just as natural light attracts insects.
Read Proverbs 24:13 – 14 from your Bible
The knowledge of wisdom attracts rewards. You can’t find the good Word of God and not attract favour. No, you can’t find the good Word of the Lord and miss goodness. In majesty ride prosperously because of truth, and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things (Ps. 45:4). Wonderful favours are attracted by the knowledge of the truth.
