SCRIPTURE: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, Ephesians 1:18.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The depth of understanding determines the passion of pursuit.
The depth of understanding has been confirmed to be the determining factor for the passion of pursuit. People only pursue passionately what they understand clearly. Anything we don’t understand clearly, we can’t pursue passionately. Insight is the fuel for exploits. If you have insight in certain areas, you will have passion of pursuit in those areas.
And so, it is important that we know why we do the things we do, and what we expect out of what we do. The more we understand the things we do to advance The kingdom, the more outstanding we become in life.
For example, look at what God says in Isaiah 45:19:
I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
From this Scripture, God seems to be saying, “I have not called you to seek me for nothing. I have not called you to seek me in vain. I didn’t call you to serve me for people to laugh at you. I have not called you to waste your life; I have called you to reward you”
This means, God is not a user of people but a Raiser of people. Human beings may use you and when they get what they want out of you, they discard you. But God is not like that. Human beings may take advantage of you, but God will never take advantage of you. God is never a user of people; He is a Raiser of people.
Beloved, understanding is key to exploits. So, make up your mind to go for knowledge in your quest for greater exploits in life and destiny.
Remember this: The depth of understanding determines the passion of pursuit.
