Arguments and pretensions against the knowledge of God - these are the strongholds which we must destroy. Immoral and rebellious behaviors are related to our knowledge/experience of God. If we really know Him personally, then we will fear Him and desire to be holy like He is holy. For me, practically, I find one of the greatest activation energy barriers to be my flesh and this world resisting and diminishing my desire to know Him. Apathy and pride seem to be immovable barricades against The Way.
What weapons do I have to demolish these arguments and pretensions that block my knowledge of God?
Heavenly Father, please help me desire to know you so that I can know you and walk with you. I love you, Lord. Please give me grace to love you totally and desire to know you only. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ.
