Obtaining Knowledge to power the healing in your physical body
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6)
by Pastor Davis Byars
Today let us begin this lesson with the word, “knowledge,” which is of priceless value, because by applying knowledge we can make our future what we wish it to be. When we realize that our present character, our present environment, our present ability, our present physical condition are all the result of past methods of thinking, we shall begin to have some conception of the value of knowledge.
The question then becomes, what is knowledge? The dictionary tells us that Knowledge is facts, information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.”a thirst for knowledge”
The Bible says in Hosea 4:6 “That my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Let us understand this simple truth and that is Knowledge is everywhere and it is available to us at all times, but when we do not avail ourselves to the truth of things that pertain to the Word of God on living our lives in wellness at all times, we as Children of God will surely perish. That is why the Bible says, “that my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”
If the state of our health is not all that could be desired, let us examine our method of thinking, let us remember that every thought produces an impression on the mind; every impression is a seed which will sink into the subconscious and form a tendency. The tendency will be to attract other similar thoughts and before we know it we shall have a crop which must be harvested.
If these thoughts contain disease germs, the harvest will be sickness, decay, weakness, and failure; the question is, what are we thinking, what are we creating, what is the harvest to be?
We know that without the knowledge and understanding of how our own bodies function to keep us well we will sub-come to the elements that surrounds us in our everyday living. It is the knowledge of the power that is within that lifts us out of the powerful forces that are outside of our bodies and minds.
When the winter months come upon us, we begin to here all the news flash about colds, flu epidemics spreading across the world. Our minds immediately go to work thinking about when we are going to catch one of these flu bugs and some of the many germs that are spreading around us. Why do we believe that just because colds and flu bugs are around us, we have to catch them and become sick?
For me, I don’t catch colds, I do not get sick; why? Because I do not allow my mind to think sickness, I have knowledge of how my body operates to keep me in perfect health, the same knowledge that is available to each of you when you avail yourselves to it and allow the Holy Spirit to work on the inside of you.
You are not bound by any power outside your own wrong thoughts, and you can free yourself from your enslaving thoughts. Here are some of the thoughts you need to be delivered from: “ I cannot rise up, I cannot break away from my bad habits, I cannot alter my nature, I cannot control or conquer myself, I cannot cease from the sins I am caught up in, All these cannot’s, should have no existence in any believer, or to the things to which they submit, they exist only in thought and because ones on lack of Knowledge.
All of these bad thoughts and habits need to be eradicated and replaced with the thoughts from the fruits of the “I can do spirit.” I can do all things through God who lives in me, strengthens me and leads me in the path of righteousness for his name sake. By replacing the negative with the positive, the healing process that exists within us, our physical bodies can be transformed into a brand new instrument. Our DNA was uniquely designed to provide us with all the necessary healing power that neither outside medication, nor Doctor can begin to match.
This concludes Lesson 2, we will continue in lesson 3 on Friday, with “Reprogramming the Mind for total Healing!”
