Topic: Accessing The Wisdom Of God [Saturday January 20th, 2018]
Scripture: 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
Thought For The Day: The man who is present with God is a candidate for the wisdom of God.
The Scriptures make it clear that wisdom is a very essential and non-negotiable ingredient to success in the journey of life and destiny. No one on earth can maximize his or her life or fulfil destiny without the operation of the spirit of wisdom.
Therefore, it is very essential to look at the source of wisdom. It is one thing to know what wisdom is all about, it is another thing to know how to acquire it. Knowing the importance of a thing without knowing how to get it leads to frustration in life.
Now, how do we access the wisdom of God?
- The Presence of God
One major source of the wisdom of God can be accessed is the Presence of God. In other words, the Presence of God is the depot of wisdom. The man who is present with God is a candidate for the wisdom of God.
The scriptures make it abundantly clear that our God is a God of wisdom. He created the world by wisdom and set the heavens in place by the operation of the same wisdom. He does everything by His wisdom. In fact, He is Wisdom Personified (1 Corinthians 1:30). That is why men who walk with God are men of wisdom. Association with the Almighty God brings about the impartation of wisdom.
- The Lives of people who walked with God
Another source of wisdom is the lives of people who walked with God. This means that walking with God is walking in wisdom; men who walk with God walk in wisdom. To access the wisdom of God, it is important to follow the footsteps of such men.
Remember This: The man who is present with God is a candidate for the wisdom of God.
- Make up your mind to live in God’s Presence.
Study the lives of men who walked with God in the past and follow their footsteps.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask that You draw me to Your Presence in order to learn Your wisdom for living, in Jesus’ Name.
