Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding (Proverbs 4:7).
The accurate knowledge of God’s Word is indispensable if you’re going to live a victorious and supernatural life on earth. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6, _“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….”_ The Lord Jesus, addressing the Jews in Matthew 22:29 said, _“…Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.”
It doesn’t matter what you experience in life, or the knowledge you’ve gained from any academic institution, if you don’t have the Word, you don’t have the wisdom of God. What you have is the wisdom of men, and the wisdom of men is limited. Only God’s wisdom can make you a true success.
In Exodus 14:16, we read something very inspiring; God instructed Moses, “…lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.”_ This was God’s wisdom in demonstration. There’s no way human mind or science can rationalize dividing a pool of water with a rod, let alone the Red Sea. But this was “God’s science”; His wisdom at work.
Moses acted on God’s Word and it worked. The Red Sea parted for the children of Israel to go through on dry ground. That’s what happens whenever anyone acts on the Word; the supernatural ensues. The Word of God is the wisdom of God. Learn to act on it, even if the statement or instruction doesn’t make sense. It didn’t make natural sense for God to ask Moses to part the Red Sea, but he obeyed and a miracle happened.
In walking in divine wisdom, oftentimes, what may be considered the ideal may not necessarily be God’s choice. This is where being a student of the Word comes in. By studying God’s Word, you become acquainted with the character of the Father; you receive insight into His will for your life, for His Word is His will expressed.
Colossians 3:16 says, _“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…Immerse yourself in the Word, and your life will be the expression of the wisdom of God.
Dear Father, your wisdom is functioning in me, and I’m excelling in good judgment, having the right ideas and making the right decisions always. I’m propelled by wisdom to say and do the right thing, at the right time, for the right purpose, for your glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
FURTHER STUDY: Proverbs 8:1-4 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? 2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. 3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors. 4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice [is] to the sons of man.
1 Corinthians 2:4-7 And my speech and my preaching [was] not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 6 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: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
