Knowledge is power
This can also be said that information is power
NOTE: The fear of GOD is the beginning of wisdom, the knowledge of Holy Spirit is understanding. Before you can also have this knowledge, you must be ready to sacrifice your time, because knowledge cannot be achieved in just a minute of time, you have to sacrifice your time. Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread. “Pro 20:13” and also he that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich. Pro 21:17 if you want to gain knowledge, you shall know how to control the available resources, just don’t be a wasteful spender, because been a wasteful spender, will only lead to poverty, you will just find your self doing the wrong thing at the right time, because instead of you to use your money to acquire good information, you will be using it to drink alcohol, not only just alcohol, it can be something else; so learn how you control your money, or even your resources; for the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags. “Pro 22:21”
For you to be a good leader also, you must request from God wisdom and knowledge, just like King Solomon. 2 chronicles 1:10, because without these (wisdom and knowledge), you can’t bring out new ideas, you can’t judge wisely, and you can’t rule wisely. Did you also know that God is the source of wisdom? “Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven”? Job 35:11; the answer is God of, or who else can do this?
Behold, God exalted by his power: who teacheth like him? Even the knowledgeable ones during the time of our forefathers, while Jesus was on earth, tried to ask how he got that knowledge, because there is no one wise as him, and even the ways he answered there questions surpasses just ordinary wisdom.
“the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the holy one is understanding” pro 9:10. Those that fears God are wise because they know what will be of benefit for them, and what will also be good for them. For you to also be a knowledgeable person, you have to be a disciplined person because “whoso loveth instructions loveth knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid” pro 12:1 (NIV)

A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth. Pro 14:6
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness. Pro 15:14
For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellence of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it. Ecc 7:12
