KNOWLEDGE

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Ephesians 1:15-23

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.

One of my favourite prayer topics is to cry out to the Lord for revelation. Until something is revealed to you in a deeper way, you do not really know it! There is a difference between “head” knowledge and “revelation” knowledge.

The more I pray for revelation, the more I understand the Word of God. The cardinal thing that has taken me forward in my walk with God has been the revelation I have had in His Word. The cardinal sign of revelation is a change in your life. Spend hours praying for wisdom and revelation.

I am talking about having revelations of God through His Word. Jesus said to “lay up for yourself treasures in heaven”(Matthew 6:20). The revelation of this Scripture is deep in my heart. That is why I could give up a lucrative medical career for the ministry. I believe I will one day reap great heavenly rewards, which are more valuable than any amount of money.That is why I could give up a quiet life of wealth and privacy in exchange for a public, often criticized role of being a spiritual leader. I have a revelation of the truth, that, “Vanity of vanity…all is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2).

Somehow, we read the Bible but we do not get the revelation of it. When you pray for the spirit of revelation, things which you have read over and over will come alive to you in a different way.
