GREAT GRACE FOR GREAT WISDOM: THE WONDER OF WISDOM. (Contd.)
By Rev Sam Oye
Ephesians 3: 10 (Amp)
Wisdom is a wonderful thing to him that has it and the absence of it is a very tragic thing to them who lack it. it
I want to say from the start that you can rise if you are wise! What that suggests is that those who are wise always rise. I wish to reemphasize that life is hard, but it is however harder for them that are foolish and easier for them that are wise. So, you will either make life easy for yourself or difficult for yourself by your penchant or hunger for wisdom. Those who pursue wisdom end up rising. The absence of it in any aspect of your life will be the substantial reason for your struggle in that area. What you do not know can kill you.
There is wisdom for wealth creation and if you lack it, you will most likely deal with poverty. There is wisdom for relationships, how to relate with people from different origins and the absence of it will cause you to suffer in the area of relationships. The absence of wisdom in a marriage will account for the turmoil in that marriage. The remarkable thing about foolishness is that it can be domiciled in the one with the most education because exceptional performance or education does not translate to wisdom in the matters of life. The Bible is clear when it that if anyone lacks wisdom, let him ask- James 1:5 (KJV).
Wisdom is the most valuable commodity in life.
Proverbs 4:7 (MSG)-
Above all and before all, do this: Get Wisdom!
Nothing distinguishes a man like wisdom. With wisdom, the young can become wise while the absence of wisdom can make the old to be irrelevant. Your progress in life will be funded by wisdom. I challenge you to pursue wisdom because the area where you lack wisdom will always show. The Bible spoke about the multifaceted wisdom of God. Ephesians 3:10 (AMP). Your greatest problem is a wisdom problem. The company you keep determines the level or degree of wisdom operational in your life.
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
Wisdom is the most valuable thing on earth, go for it and you will be amazed.
Proverbs 4:7 (TPT)-
Wisdom is the most valuable commodity—so buy it! Revelation-knowledge is what you need—so invest in it!
Have you noticed that the ones who works or expends energy the most are the least paid? It is a wisdom problem and not an energy problem. The Bible makes it clear that wisdom is the advantage.
Ecclesiastes 10:10 (NASB)
If the axe is dull and he does not sharpen its edge, then he must exert more strength. Wisdom has the advantage of bringing success.
There are only two classifications in the word of God; it is either wisdom or foolishness. You cannot get to your prophetic destiny manifesting foolishness.
What is Wisdom?
Wisdom is the supernatural ability to know what to always do. It is the ability to make the right choices and decisions always and act on them all the time. Even in your season, the absence of wisdom can minimize your harvest. Your business can be limited because of the absence of wisdom even when God led you to start the business.
Proverbs 3: 13-15 (NLT)
Joyful is the person who finds wisdom, the one who gains understanding. For wisdom is more profitable than silver, and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.
The entrance of wisdom is the beginning of solving all problems you may face in life.
How to get wisdom.
By fearing God: The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. It is the foundation of wisdom. Proverbs 9:10 (NLT). Departing from evil or all appearances of same owing to the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.
By walking with the wise: Proverbs 13:20 (AMP)-He who walks [as a companion] with wise men will be wise, But the companions of [conceited, dull-witted] fools [are fools themselves and] will experience harm.
By asking God for wisdom: James 1:5 (KJV)- 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. Whatever you need wisdom for, all you need to do is go to God and ask for wisdom. Lacking wisdom is not a problem; it is refusing to ask for wisdom.
