Knowledge vs Skill

So Ive decided to start looking for a new job. While reading through job adverts on I realized that while I have a lot of knowledge around my area of specialization (Software Development) I am no longer skilled sufficiently to be a software developer.

That doesn’t mean I can be a software developer, but it does mean that I wont pass a skills test on my preferred development tools, for example JavaScript: I know what is possible in JavaScript and can look it up when I need to, but I cant write a test on JavaScript and pass.
