TOPIC: THE POWER OF WISDOM
SCRIPTURE: But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. – 1 Corinthians 1:24.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The closer we get to God, the closer we get to wisdom.
Our anchor scripture portrays wisdom as a personality; the personality of Jesus Christ. This means that the closer we get to God, the closer we get to wisdom. On the other hand, the farther we are from God, the farther we are from wisdom.
Therefore, acting and living independent of God is a confirmation of foolishness (Proverbs 14:1). It is a separation from the Spirit of wisdom.
Now, what are the products of the Spirit of wisdom?
1)The Spirit of wisdom is the Spirit of leadership
2)The Spirit of wisdom is the Spirit that produces skill, expertise and excellence.
3)The Spirit of wisdom is the Spirit of solution provision.
4)The Spirit of wisdom is the Spirit of conquest in battles and conflicts.
5)The Spirit of wisdom is the Spirit of the knowledge of God.
How can one access the Spirit of wisdom?
1)By direct release from God through humility (Proverbs 11:2). Humility commands supernatural mentality.
2)By direct release from God through prayer (James 1:5).
3)By impartation from carriers of the Spirit of wisdom (Deuteronomy 34:9).
Beloved, value your relationship with God and you will operate in wisdom naturally.
Remember this: The closer we get to God, the closer we get to wisdom.
1. Treasure your relationship with God above all things.
2. Ask God for the baptism of the Spirit of wisdom.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask that You draw me closer to You. Baptize me afresh with the Spirit of Wisdom, in Jesus’ Name.
