Wisdom for the day!

Wisdom In the Biblical sense, wisdom is the “ability to judge correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding” (Lockyer p. 1103). Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given […]

In the Biblical sense, wisdom is the “ability to judge correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding” (Lockyer p. 1103).

Clearly, we all need this, and God promises to give it to us if we ask:

Jas 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Jer_33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

There is natural knowledge, that comes from study, and the exercise of our mental faculties, then there is revealed wisdom, which is where God supernaturally illuminates to our understanding either a solution to a problem, or a course of action that would not be readily apparent in our own understanding or strength.

Do we need both? Surely. What I already know, I already know, which is why I discipline myself to continue to read at least two good books every week. This helps me to increase, and stay current in knowledge.

However, what I don’t know, I don’t know.

Yet, wisdom, to me, means, ‘knowledge correctly applied’. This takes a walk with Jesus, where Holy Spirit constantly gives me ‘Aha!’ moments of inspiration, that were not readily apparent through normal study and research.

Job, the wealthiest and most honored man of his day figured this out:

Job 28:

12 But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?

13 Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.

14 The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.

15 It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.

16 It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.

17 The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.

18 No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.

19 The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.

20 Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?

21 Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.

22 Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.

23 God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.

True wisdom comes from God and God alone!

This, is exactly what you need today. Specifically, He has told me to post this, that you might move supernaturally into solutions that you could not have known about, had you not prayed.

The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.

Let’s Pray:

“Father, I ask you for wisdom and direction for my life. Show me what I must do, and how, and when I must do it. Give me understanding, illumination, on the myriad issues I face, and make apparent, the things that are essential, critical, and urgent, that I not waste my time, and Yours, on wasted thought or activities, in light of eternity. Father, I ask this, of Lord Jesus, my personal pastor and Shepherd, in His name. Speak to me Holy Spirit I pray, Amen!”

Living Words – Life from Above

This morning as I sought the Lord and prayed some of the promises from His Word, personalizing them and putting my name and the name of my family in them, I felt Holy Spirit accent certain words from this familiar passage, that encouraged me.

 

So, I thought I would have some fun, and pray these verses over you and your family today, in faith that Holy Spirit might meet with you personally today, and do these very accented things in your life today.

 

Here’s the verse:

 

Col 1:9 ¶  For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10  That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11  Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

12 ¶  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

 

Here’s the way I saw it this morning:

Col 1:9 ¶  For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray
col-pray
for you, and to desire
col-desire
that ye might be filled
col-filled
with the knowledge
col-knowledge
of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
col-understand

10  That ye might walk worthy
col-walk-worthy
of the Lord
col-lord
unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing
col-increase
in the knowledge of God;

11  Strengthened
col-strength
with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and

longsuffering with joyfulness;
col-joy

12 ¶  Giving thanks
Thank You Jesus
unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14  In whom we have redemption
col-redemption
through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

col-forgiveness
Join withe me and pray and proclaim:
heart1
So I Pray,

with fervent Desire, Holy Spirit FILL you with Divine Knowledge that would show you who you are as a royal child before His throne. That this Understanding would so encourage and Empower you, that you would square your shoulders back, and decide to Walk worthy of Jesus, King of all Kings, and Lord of all Lords,  and as a creation of the Creator of all things, would be constantly Increasing in revelation of who He is ALL-Mighty God of the universe, heaven and earth, and that you would be Strengthened by His ALL-Mightiness, His Power (that created the universe and raised Jesus from the dead). That this touch of heaven would so fill you with Joyfulness, that you laugh at adversity, the devil and all his tricks.  That in light of Jesus incredible Redemption and completion of our lives, we walk Gratefully, humbly, and confidently knowing that despite His great Holiness and searing glory, we have found Forgiveness of our sins. Amen.

Increase Your Ability Before Investing…

Ability before Investment capital
'Ability before Investment capital
Matt 25:15  And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 
You know the story, a man, a nobleman, invested in his employees, some investment capital, before he went on a journey to become king. He did this, according to their ability! 
Therefore ability precedes investment capital.
Use what talents you possess: The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. 
Henry Van Dyke, Bits & Pieces, March 31, 1994, p. 16.
You know the rest of the story, one received five cities, the other ten, because they were faithful with the ability, they had been given.
Question: What are we doing today to increase our abilities to lead today, because the welfare of the people we are called to influence in the cities we are to exercise our gifts in, depends upon it!
Let’s pray:
“Father God, increase my ability today. Teach me, help me to read the right books, articles, and Scripture to grow in my gift and calling today, in your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen”'
