"For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea" (Hab. 2:14).

We frequently hear the term "the knowledge of the Lord." According to Colossians 1:9-10, God desires that we be filled with the knowledge of Him and His will. When the knowledge of the Lord fills the land, the Spirit of God will manifest Himself

The Word of God tells us that God has chosen to dwell in human vessels. So the human vessels He has chosen to indwell need to be filled with the knowledge of God before the knowledge of God can fill the earth!

You as a believer need to have a personal knowledge of God. You shouldn't just let someone stand behind a pulpit and tell you about God without your getting involved in knowing God for yourself. With your own eyes, read the Word and devour it. Find out for yourself what God's Word has to say about your life in Christ.

The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is simple. Man's theology and religion have tried to make it difficult. But in Jesus' earthly ministry, He always kept His teaching very simple. And yet in His simplicity, Jesus was very profound.

Man's theology did not bring you into a personal relationship with God. The Word of God brought you into a personal knowledge of Him. And through the knowledge of God and His Word, you can maintain a lifestyle of victory and success because you know the Victor and the Conqueror - Jesus! Because of Him, you have become more than a conqueror (Rom. 8:37).

Part of knowing God is meditating in His Word and putting it into operation in your everyday life. For example, you can know the keys on a musical keyboard. But until you actually begin to play those keys, no music will come forth. It's operating in the knowledge you have that produces results.

We as the Body of Christ need to get a hold of the knowledge of God as we devour the pages of God's Word for ourselves. Then we can each operate in our place filled with the knowledge of God.

As we do, the whole earth will be filled with the knowledge of God, and mighty demonstrations of His power and glory will come upon the earth!
