Know It. Believe It. Act on It. Receive It.
These things come by knowing, believing, and acting on these promises. Then you partake of God’s divine provision.

Know it. Believe it. Act on it. Receive it.
God has offered it to you; but if you don’t know that, you will not enter into it. You may believe the lies of Satan and fall into needless problems, hurt, harm, and trouble.

Without the knowledge of God, you will believe the things you have heard through religious circles: that God sometimes sends tragedy to teach you and make you stronger. This will seem right to you, but it is not right. It is not what God’s Word says.

Someone has made the statement: “The devil is no more than an unwilling servant of God.” In other words, the devil is performing God’s work, causing people to grow stronger by tempting, testing, and trying them. That same individual said, “God never did promise to deliver us out of troubles. He always sends troubles to make us stronger and more like Jesus.”

This kind of thinking sounds good to the religious mind, but it is a lie of the devil!

Psalm 91:7-10 brings light to this subject.
A thousand may fall at your side. And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.

Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place. No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.
Some people do not know that God is their habitation, that God is the deliverer. The individuals who believe that the devil is dong God a service are opening the door to tragedy and inviting Satan into their lives. There is no defense for them.

They reason this way: If Satan is doing it for God, then who am I to resist God?

But, Satan is not doing it for God; he is doing it to destroy God’s creation. He is an enemy of God and man!
No evil shall befall you. Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;  For He shall give His angels charge over you. To keep you in all of your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up. Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.
(Ps. 91:10-16)
Certainly, God said He would deliver us out of trouble. That is the will, the purpose, and the plan of God for our lives!

Speaking of Jesus, Galatians 1:4 says:
Who gave Himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.
In other words, it is the will of God that we be delivered from this present evil world, or the evil that is in the world! Is in not God’s will for us to go through all the evil – problems, test, trials, troubles, tribulations – that the devil has to offer.

We have heard many sermons about how God led the children of Israel in the wilderness; and most of these sermons seem to convey that the “wilderness experience” was to perfect them or make them stronger. But it did not make them stronger. It did not perfect their faith. It was not the will of God that they be in the wilderness all those years.

Their “wilderness experience” was not God’s blessing, it was a curse!

It was not designed to make the children of Israel stronger. It was designed to kill them – and it killed all those over twenty years of age. The “wilderness experience” killed the doubters.

The knowledge of why Israel was in the wilderness will give you a different perspective of God.
