TOPIC: You Need Wisdom (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 10 January 2019)

Bible In One Year: Exodus 25-26; Matthew 20:17-34

FIRE SCRIPTURE: James 3:15-17

MEMORY VERSE: “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.” – James 1:5

The MESSAGE:

Wisdom graced the lives of many biblical figures –Daniel, Ezra, Joshua –and brought them to great success. Similarly, kings and priests as well as princes and paupers all need wisdom.

Solomon was notable for receiving and using the wisdom of God. This gave him a highly successful and peaceful reign. The judgement he gave on who the rightful mother of a living child was between two disputing prostitutes bore eloquent testimony of the working of the spirit of wisdom in his life. No matter what your calling, vocation, occupation or profession is, you need both power from on high and wisdom from above. Joshua got a great measure of the spirit of wisdom when Moses laid his hands on him. Hence, as Moses’ successor, he was able to lead the children of Israel to the Promised Land successfully.

There are five steps you need to take for receiving wisdom from God. The first is for you to acknowledge that God has the answer to your questions on need for wisdom. Proverbs 2:6 says “For the Lord govern wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” Indeed, God is our sufficiency and every good and perfect gift (including wisdom) comes from Him. Second, for you to receive wisdom from God, you must pray to Him and ask for it. James 1:5 specifically gives this admonition, “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.” In addition to that, you can receive wisdom from God by believing He will help you. The just shall live by faith. Your faith has a great role to play in receiving any good thing (including wisdom) from the Lord. Proverbs 4:18 says that the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more unto the perfect day.

Another step you must take in order to get wisdom from God is to get in motion. Someone defines wisdom as the application of knowledge acquired. You must make conscious effort to correctly apply and utilise the knowledge, instructions, illuminations and promptings God gave you from His word, through personal revelations and so on. When you keep doing this, God will bless you with wisdom from above. Finally, in order to receive wisdom from God, you should always check your decisions against God’s word.

The God of grace and glory will be merciful to you today.
