THE WISDOM OF GOD 2

Mar 20, 2023

The performance of Jesus was attributed to the great wisdom He exhibited.

Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of WISDOM and understanding, …

Mark 6:2… And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what WISDOM is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands!

The wisdom of God is responsible for excellence in anyone’s life. That is why we must go after her no matter how powerful and knowledgeable we are. She gives us the “how to”, making us a wonder.

James 3:13-15 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of WISDOM…

This wisdom is full of humility and meekness. Therefore, every time you see pride, bitterness, envy, jealousy, and arrogance, you must know that it is not God’s wisdom but demonic wisdom at work.

If you fear God, you will not entertain evil.

Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil;

You need wisdom every time you do not know what to do. Otherwise, you will put in so much but get very little or no outcome (Ecclesiastes 10:15).

 

When you have wisdom, you will be in command. (1 Chronicles 12:32).

Proverbs 8:16 By me princes rule, and nobles, All the judges of the earth.

What makes the princes, nobles, and judges have dominion is wisdom and not power. A great CEO doesn’t have to be intelligent but needs wisdom on how to operate.

Daniel 1:12,20 [12]“Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink.[20]And in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm.

Daniel and his friends ate vegetables to tap into God’s wisdom. Every man has a specific wisdom that governs the ordination of their life:

There is a specific instruction/diet you need to feed on to take your life to another level; John the Baptist had to be a man of prayer and fasting that he even taught his disciples to fast. The anointing upon his life operated through prayer and fasting. (Matthew 9:14).

Read Genesis 19

God gave Lot and his family an instruction not to look behind if they were to get deliverance. When Lot’s wife looked behind, she became a pillar of salt but when Abraham looked in verse 28, nothing happened to him because the instruction was not given to him.

Every person has an instruction that governs their ordination that when it is practised, there is no limit to their dealings with God.

1 Kings 13:7-8 [7]Then the king said to the man of God, “Come home with me and refresh yourself, and I will give you a reward.” [8]But the man of God said to the king, “If you were to give me half your house, I would not go in with you; nor would I eat bread nor drink water in this place.

As long as the man of God kept the instruction, God preserved the anointing upon his life but when he broke the protocol, he died (1 King 13:23-14).

The prayers that most of us need to make must be prayers of inquiry so that we may receive the specific wisdom we need to stand out.

Ephesians 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of WISDOM and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

This wisdom is for everyone: find out the instruction that governs the call of God upon your life to become a wonder.
