Zeal without Knowledge

“For I can testify about them that are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge.”

 Romans 10:2 

          Are we zealous for God?  Is it real or is it in the flesh only? Oh, we can get excited about certain projects and get all enthused but if we aren’t zealous in the spirit, our desires and enthusiasm will wane. I have come to realize these earthly vessels are very weak in zeal. It takes the strength of the Holy Spirit within to bring it to fruition.  We ask then, is it reality or wishful thinking?     

God’s definition of reality, as He defines reality is in His Word and validates it with His will. The most effective way to remain in touch with reality is to stay connected with Christ. Alignment with the Almighty assures reality. He is a reality check, along with wise counselors. This is why a humble and teachable spirit is a prerequisite to understanding reality. Do not allow your experience, success, and intelligence to blind you from reality.

Knowledge must be asserted along with zeal to accomplish God’s will. And where does that come from? Study in the Word of God and His wisdom through His Holy Spirit will fill our heart and minds to do the work He has called us to do.

I have found if I will allow the Holy Spirit the freedom to work through me the task becomes effortless but very meaningful!  I hope to share what God is teaching me about the Vine and the Branch, for it deals with the operation between the two to bring forth much fruit for His glory.

 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.”

2 Peter 3:18
