When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee. Prov 2:10-11 KJV
It takes some degrees of confidence to utter words of authority and confidence is a viability of understanding. You see what we don’t know we cannot be confident about even our speech reflects our weakness and loopholes. People have told me “Joseph, I don’t know how to explain what I know, I just forgot whenever am making presentation” I said it’s because you don’t yet understand what you know. You can only forget knowledge about something but cannot forget what you understand. Understanding is an inflow of knowledge, it generates knowledge on its own and that knowledge becomes a channel to which men access your understanding.
Do you know why the bible seems difficult to extract? Because men who wrote the bible had those written in revelation, wisdom and understanding. That’s why the bible has the ability to produce knowledge in every spheres of life. The reason why books aren’t impacting anymore like men of old is because today’s books are full of knowledge gotten from another knowledge (eg he read myles muroe books copy some knowledge from myles and joined to his then publish 150 pages book.), books ought to be written based on understanding for people to get or extract knowledge. Prophet Isaiah wrote one book and God confirmed what was inside, till date we all reference to that book. People read books today and forget what was inside after two weeks. Until knowledge takes you back to the understanding of the author/writer you cannot replicate such understanding.
So it takes understanding to possess words of authority. You cannot stand authoritatively on what you don’t understand and ofcourse you cannot command audience beyond the confidence of your understanding because confidence is quality in possession.
Structure of Authority
Have you ever sat with a man who knows football history or politics? Obviously you will keep quiet because what you know does not match with theirs. When someone is talking of football or politic of 1950, 1970 in relations to a current subject matter and all you know begin 2006 in history etc when you press yourself into understanding, power is literally release to dominate. The same way you kept quiet when men who know history of football than you, the same the devil and his agents will do when you possess enough understanding.
The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth, by understanding hath he established the heavens. Prov 3:19 KJV
Job had an issue with God calling for a meeting between both of them and when God showed up God came with question of creation and at a point God said if Job can anwer him he will start to respect Job. You see understanding empowers you over others it makes you to supply knowledge in different version. Men of understanding aren’t stereotype they are dynamic.
And they were astonished at his doctrine; for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out
Saying let us alone…
Mark 1:22-24 KJV
Note: Your faith can only stand on quality understanding of what you are claiming. Therefore your understanding is the evidence of your faith.
You make decisions based on the best quality of understanding you have. No man becomes a champ without putting up a fight, and our daily decisions are tools that drive us to the future. Whatever decision you are making today will tell in the future.
Please read the story of the two demon possessed men in mat 8:28-32 KJV
I asked the Lord why didn’t he take the pathway of swine why that of fierce possessed men? The Lord said it takes the thing on the inside to overcome the forces in your path why it takes your head (strategies, principles, education etc) to pass through the swine. Men of faith live by the thing on the inside.
The Victory of men of faith becomes the stumbling block to men of swine. No wonder men of the world are always angry with the results of men of faith. Remember before you chose to follow the pathway of swine the demons left off by men of faith are still coming for you.
Time is subject: Every man of faith keeps time in subject because they knew nothing in this world can stop them. Compare with men of the world who want to breakthrough 2000 swine with head knowledge.
You dare it: If it’s bigger than you, it’s only your head not your faith. If you have not failed 77 * 7 in that business you are not permitted to lose faith.
Note: That your head doubts it does not mean your faith is fake. Simply leave the realm of the head and turn to the faith by heart.
