SEEDS OF VICTORY WITH APOSTLE JOSEPH ZIBA
Laying Up Knowledge: Key to Great Impact in the New Year – Monday, 4th January, 2021
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6 (KJV)
As the new year has just begun, make up your mind to lay up knowledge in the areas that matter to you. The fact of the matter is that any man of impact in this world Knows something that nobody else knows. Thus, if you are planning to be unbeatable in your endeavors and if you are dreaming of becoming a ‘factor’ in your profession, gather as much usable knowledge as you can in those areas.

Apostle Joseph Ziba – Seeds of Victory, 4 January, 2021
The Scripture above presents the danger of lacking knowledge which many haven’t discovered yet. God bewails His children and says, ”My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…”. The word ‘destroy(ed)’ in the verse from its Hebrew roots means to be ‘dumb’ or ‘silent’ or ‘cease’. This means that any area you don’t have knowledge in, you never exist— you literally don’t have a voice in that area. Consequently, you can’t have impact and nobody will follow you.
If you stop learning (gathering knowledge), you’ll start dying. No wonder Apostle Paul crudely puts it, ”If anyone thinks of himself as a know-it-all, he still has a lot to learn.” (1 Corinthians 8:2, The Passion Translation). Truly, you still have a lot to learn.
Don’t waste your time this year. Life is not a rehearsal. Make up your mind to know God more than ever before and strive for more knowledge in the areas that matter to you and 2021 will be exciting to you!
Heavenly Father, thank You for the ability and the platform of learning. I bless You today for the various people and platforms from which I can gather knowledge, more especially for the teachers of my life. Help me, through the Holy Ghost, to never lose my hunger for knowledge this year. In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
