Yesterday’s Oil

Hosea 4:6 my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.“Because you have rejected knowledge,I also reject you as my priests;because you have ignored the law of your God,I also will ignore your children.

What makes so many people reject God and the good news found only in Jesus Christ? What makes even some of His most faithful followers burn out at times after the long hard journey called, “life”? What can we do to prevent this? Its very interesting what this verse suggests, knowledge of God! If more people only knew how good God was and who he is than less people would run from Him and his ways!

Ephesians 1:16 I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.

The way to deeper love for God is not trying harder. Its knowing him deeper. Its to “know him better!”
You would never run your car without engine oil, would you? Revelation to the people of God is like oil to the engine of a car, it keeps are actions in line with the truth and lubricates the deepest recesses of our hearts where the most friction occurs! Don’t rely on last years oil to keep your gears going, we all need fresh truth daily from his word!
