Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

John 10:10 says, the devil’s goal is to steal, kill, and destroy. A major weapon the devil uses for our destruction is a lack of knowledge of the Word of God. If we don’t know our covenant rights, we can’t believe for those things to manifest. If we don’t know the authority we have over Satan, we’ll always be afraid of what he may do. If we don’t know Satan’s schemes, he’ll always keep God’s promises from us.

The devil attempts to keep us ignorant of God’s Word through numerous distractions. He’ll distract us with watching TV or scrolling through social media because it’s more appealing to our flesh. He’ll also distract us by keeping us busy with everyday life and making it more difficult to spend time with God.

The only way to combat the devil’s attack is through knowledge. If we make the Word of God a priority in our lives, we won’t ever be a victim of his destruction again.
