God’s Wisdom Will Promote You

“Exalt her (wisdom), and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee” (Proverbs 4:8-9).

Do you desire promotion in your life? If you do, then do as the Bible says: Exalt wisdom and it will promote you. I think this is good news! It means that you don’t have to try to get man’s favour or attention for your promotion for the secret is in your Bible. Wisdom’s promotion is more rewarding than the promotion of men. What’s more, when it comes, it’s undeniable. For example, Joseph was sold by his brothers into Egypt as a slave (Genesis 37). In the course of time, his master’s wife accused him falsely and he was imprisoned. However, wisdom kept promoting Joseph, even while he was in the prison until he became the head of the prisoners (Genesis 39:22-23). For some time, it seemed like that would be the end of his story. One night, the Pharaoh had a dream which none of his magicians could interpret. Someone remembered the wise Hebrew prisoner and recommended him to the Pharaoh. Joseph was brought before the Pharaoh and he interpreted the king’s dream. When Joseph finished speaking, the Pharaoh said, “Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? …there is none so discreet and wise as thou art…I have set thee over all the land of Egypt” (Genesis 41:38-41). The Egyptian empire was preserved by the wisdom of one young man, Joseph. If wisdom could promote a thirty-year old Hebrew prisoner to Prime Minister of the most powerful empire overnight, what can it not do for you? Sadly, a lot of people haven’t realized that wisdom is a promoter. In your life, exalt wisdom; give it priority and it will exalt you. The wisdom of God is the Word of God, so go for the Word. Give it the deserved attention and importance, and it’ll promote you and bring you to honour and glory.

The Wisdom Of God Is In You

“…To the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”  (Colossians 2:2-3).

The lack of wisdom is the reason for failure, poverty and struggling in the lives of men and women all over the world. Wisdom, in this sense, is defined as insight into reality; it gives a man the ability to comprehend beyond the physical senses. This wisdom is a requirement for a successful life. The good news is that every child of God has wisdom. No matter what your experience in life has been, the truth is that the wisdom of God is in you. This kind of wisdom is greater than all the wisdom of this world: “But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30). Christ has become your wisdom, and God expects you to function by that wisdom. One day, the Prophet Elisha wanted to help the sons of the prophets recover a heavy metal (axe-head) from a river (2 Kings 6:4-7). He didn’t have to enter the river nor did he ask for dredging equipments. He simply cut a stick and threw it into the river, and the heavy metal (axe-head) floated to the surface! He knew exactly what to do and it worked, even though it was against every known law of Physics. That’s God’s wisdom at work. Hallelujah! God has deposited ALL the treasures of wisdom in Christ, and “Christ” refers to Jesus and His Church—His Body (Colossians 1:18). You are a member of that Body, so that treasure of wisdom is available to you. When you take advantage of God’s wisdom in you, you’ll discover that there is absolutely nothing that you cannot comprehend or achieve. You’ll have insight into reality and hidden things of life. Take advantage of it; tap into it through meditation and begin to function beyond this world.

The Excellence Of Wisdom

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her”  (Proverbs 4:7-8).

The Word of God is the wisdom of God. So when the Bible says we should get wisdom, it’s not referring to mental knowledge; rather, it’s telling us to go for the Word of God. Wisdom, the Bible says, is the principal thing. In other words, it’s what you need to be successful in life (James 1:5 TLB). Wisdom comes from God through His Word. Wisdom is a force. When the wisdom of God is given to you, it becomes the power that influences your choices in life. It becomes the guiding force of your life. The words that you receive from God will propel you in the right direction in life. With those words, you’ll be able to navigate through life. As you receive God’s Word and speak it forth, everything that’s consistent with God’s destiny for your life will be made available to you. It’ll draw the people you’re supposed to meet to you, take you to the places you’re supposed to go and give you all the things you require to function in the will of God. The Bible says, “The LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:6). Always remember that you cannot be more successful than the level of wisdom that you have in your spirit. The level of your success in life is dependent on the extent to which you function in the wisdom of God. Wisdom is imparted into a man’s life through the Word of God, and it is increased in the same way. Go for wisdom today!

The Principal Thing

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7).

God is the embodiment of wisdom. He has imparted His nature to us so we also have wisdom. The Bible says in Psalm 111:10 that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Some people think this means being afraid of God. That’s not what it’s talking about. ‘Fear’ here means a reverential acknowledgement of God’s supremacy. The Bible says it is only a fool that will say there is no God (Psalm 14:1). The acknowledgement of God, the acceptance of God, the followership of God, the response to God is the beginning of wisdom. There will be times when it seems difficult to follow God because what He wants is always contrary to the desires of your flesh. Remember, Jesus told the rich young ruler, “Go sell all you have, give the money to the poor and come follow me.” The man’s flesh revolted against the words of Jesus and the Bible says he went away sad, and there was no mention of him ever again in the Bible. He didn’t do what Jesus said and he never came back. He missed a great destiny because he didn’t have the wisdom to follow the words of the Master. Except you have the fear of God and acknowledge who He is, it will be difficult, impossible in fact, to respond to Him, just as this rich young man discovered. There’s a wisdom that dwells in us that supersedes the wisdom of the world. We have been made wise unto God and unto victorious living. We have received Christ and He has been made unto us Wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30) Therefore, we have the wisdom of God—the revelation knowledge of God and the ability to apply it in our lives.

Speak Wisdom

“Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery…” (1 Corinthians 2:6-7).

The wisdom of God is the Word of God. Notice that the scripture doesn’t say that we “speak with wisdom,” but that we “speak (or talk) wisdom among those who are mature.” This is why the people of the world and spiritual babes don’t understand the wisdom of God that we speak. God said to Abraham, “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee” (Genesis 17:5). The man knew those words were the wisdom of God for it was medically impossible for him to have any child. Immediately, he aligned his confession with the wisdom of God and organized a grand “re-naming ceremony.” From that time on, he introduced himself to everyone by his new name, “Abraham” which means “father of many.” I’m sure everyone must have thought the old man was going senile because his wife was barren and old. However, Abraham maintained his confession of God’s wisdom and sure enough, Isaac was born. When you begin to speak the wisdom of God, there are those who will mock at you, but don’t let it deter you. The wisdom of God will always be at variance with the things the physical senses can perceive, but be sure that the wisdom of God never fails. As you meditate on God’s Word, continue to declare the things He has said concerning you, irrespective of the situation. It doesn’t matter that the doctors have told you that your disease is incurable. The real question is, “What does the wisdom of God say?” What you do is this: go into your room, lock your door and begin to say to yourself, “the wisdom of God says that by His stripes I was healed, so if I was healed then I’m still healed! I cannot be sick!” Keep declaring the wisdom of God and it will prevail.

Seek Wisdom, Not Riches

“Riches and honour are with me (wisdom), enduring wealth and righteousness (uprightness in every area and relation, and right standing with God)” (Proverbs 8:18 AMP).

The scriptures record the Lord’s passionate plea to His children, in the eighth chapter of Proverbs, to seek wisdom rather than riches. In summary, Proverbs 8:18, means, “I can give you everything you desire and much more!” (Paraphrase mine). The Lord is not impressed by how much money you have in the bank, the number of cars you possess, the size of your mansion or the quality of your clothing. He’s more concerned about the salvation of your soul; He wants your heart to seek passionately after Him and not after earthly gain. I’m yet to meet anybody who wouldn’t like to prosper in life. The desire to prosper and be successful is an intrinsic quality of man. This is why many people spend most of their lives chasing after riches, wealth or fame, just to satisfy this urge to succeed. Contrary to that of the world which is void of righteousness, riches that comes from the Lord is with honour and righteousness. No wonder the Bible says, “A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked” (Psalm 37:16). That’s not all, for there’s more to the Lord’s riches! The riches of the Lord produce enduring wealth. In other words, you’ll live in perpetual and permanent prosperity. I’ve seen people who, at a certain time in their lives, had everything going for them but later lost everything. The reason is that their wealth wasn’t based on God’s Word: “Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven” (Proverbs 23:4-5). You have to put your trust in God to walk in the prosperity that will last you a life time.

No Ordinary Wisdom!

“But of him (God) are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption”  (1 Corinthians 1:30).

As a Christian, you have been anointed by the Holy Spirit of God, and that anointing continually guides and leads you. You no longer function with ordinary wisdom which is of man but according to an excellent wisdom which is of God. You were anointed with this excellent wisdom when you received Christ into your heart. A lot of Christians have never been taught how to take advantage of their rights and privileges in Christ. Many haven’t understood the true meaning of Christianity. They’ve never understood that Christianity is a supernatural life, it’s a life out of this world. There are Christians who make king-sized errors; they rarely make mistakes but when they do it’s a big one. When a Christian makes terrible mistakes in life, it’s not difficult to know that he’s not functioning in that excellent wisdom which God has made available to him. When you function with the wisdom of God, you will walk your way out of afflictions and difficulties. God has given us His wisdom so we don’t have to suffer and go through the same things those in the world go through. The more you learn God’s Word, the more you dig into that wisdom and the more you’re able to avail yourself of the privileges and advantages of that wisdom. Christ has been made unto you wisdom and that means He has become your wisdom. I don’t lack wisdom because Christ has become my wisdom. I always know the right thing to do, and in any situation I come up against, I know I’m going to come out victorious. To live in consistent victories, you need to learn to function in the wisdom of God in your family, on the job, in your finances, in your dealings with people, in fact, in everything you do.

SEPTEMBER 15, 2020: HE’S WITH ME AND IN ME!

I declare that the Holy Spirit is my comforter, helper, teacher, guide, standby, counsellor and advocate. He’s with me and in me; therefore, I can never be in the dark or miss my way in life. He lives in my heart and abides with me forever. I’m conscious of His presence in my life. Irrespective of what I may face in my life, divinity is at work in me! Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I’m manifesting Christ; Christ in me, the hope of glory! Heaven is in me; The fullness of the Godhead is fully tabernacled in me, and expressed through me! Thank You dear Father, for the great honour and blessing of having Christ live in me by the Holy Spirit; by virtue of His indwelling and abiding presence, I’m infused with divine energy and supernatural wisdom to do the will of God, and live triumphantly over the devices of the evil one and the corrupting influences in this world. Hallelujah!
