32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Daniel 11:32

3 But I have understanding as well as you; I am not inferior to you. Indeed, who does not know such things as these?
Job 12:3

2 What you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you.
Job 13:2

You know God by having His life inside you. I don’t know about you, but I have certainly had enough of the slavery mentality that has dominated a lot of God’s people. Remember that it was a slavery mentality that prevented all of the children of Israel (except Joshua and Caleb) from entering the Promised Land. This was after their God had shown His hand strong and miraculously delivered them from the bondage of Pharaoh and Egypt. They were free men but they were still bound as slaves in their minds!

The Bible didn’t say the white man that knows his God shall do; neither did it say the black man that knows his God shall do. The Word didn’t say that the graduate that knows his God shall do; or the well-connected politician that knows his God shall do. I didn’t read in the Word that the pastor that knows his God shall do; or the mature Christian who knows his God shall do. Praise God, the only qualification was knowledge! The Word says it is the people that do know their God that shall do. It’s the same red blood that is flowing through everybody’s veins. Access to know the Father is open to everyone. Salvation brings us all to the normalizing start line and our social, racial, economic, spiritual or educational advantages or disadvantages cannot stand on their own to determine our future.

Learn to look on the inside of you and let the spirit man rise above the physical body. Bring the creative ideas out of you, making something good of them. God Himself will sponsor that idea. If God put the creative idea in you, then He will sponsor it. Learn to meditate on God’s Word. Meditation on the Word brings creative ideas to even the youngest believer.

Confession: I look into my spirit where the life of God dwells and I bring out the creative ideas put on the inside of me by God. I meditate on the Word, and the Word brings creative ideas.
