1 Corinthians 8:1-2
Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.
 
I am the one who gives knowledge to My people, but it is given with the intention of furthering My goodness and Kingdom on the earth. Sadly, people take this knowledge and many times use it for selfish gain or for evil purposes. The enemy doesn't have one original idea he can only pervert that which originates from Me. He likes to think he can create, but there is only one Creator and I am the one who holds the keys that unlock that wisdom and knowledge.
 
Anything done from the realm of the flesh produces nothing but eventual death and destruction; however, those things done from a place of the redeemed spirit man produces My glory. When I impart knowledge to My children, it is power packed with the potential to transform not only your life, but also the multitudes. The whole motivation behind everything I do is love. I sent My Son to earth to demonstrate My love for all people. He gave His life to give them life and that more abundantly. Likewise, My children are to walk as demonstrators of His great love laying down their lives for the sake of others.
 
I give knowledge to rid this world of the evil and corruption the enemy has brought. I hold the answers to the world's greatest problems and when My people seek My face with their whole hearts, they will find them. Whether it is sickness, disease, financial crisis, famine, pollution, or international chaos, the answers and solutions await discovery in My presence.
 
The key to unlocking these discoveries is love. Love conquers all and brings enlightenment to those who live in dark places. I bless that which comes from the heart of love and My Spirit carries it to the multitudes. On the other hand, pride kills love causing a person to take credit for things that I do. This leads to self-exultation and self-reliance shutting off My blessing. At this point, My knowledge stops and the wisdom of man takes over.
 
I have much to reveal, but I can only share My secrets with those who have surrendered hearts and flow in My love.
 
A whole world awaits the manifestation of My sons, 
will you be one of them?
 
Dear Jesus, I say, "Yes, Lord!" I desire to be one You share the secrets of Your heart. You know my heart better than I do, so I ask You to search me in the deepest places and remove any and all roots of pride. I would never want to touch Your glory taking credit for Your handiwork. I see the pain people endure and I long to be a conduit of Your love bringing them the answers they so desperately need. I ask for Your revelatory download of knowledge to come on the body of Christ. I pray for the release of knowledge to create witty inventions in areas of medical cures, food production, and water purification systems bringing help to so many in this world. Lord Jesus, create in me a clean heart and a right spirit that I may exemplify Your love through the knowledge you give me. I desire to steward this gift to bring You all the glory and praise. Amen!
