Topic: Connect To God’s Wisdom [Thursday November 30, 2017]
“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:” (Daniel 2:20 KJV)
Reading through the account in Daniel 2, it is clear that unlike the astrologers, magicians and Chaldeans who had no answer and had no place to turn to for a solution, Daniel knew he had a God who reveals deep and secret things. The book of Daniel 11:32 (KJV) says, “…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” Daniel had confidence in God, and he approached the situation from that standpoint. If you truly must leverage on this wisdom, which has been ordained for your glory, then you must be connected to the Father who is the source of all wisdom. Proverbs 2:7 (NKJV) addresses this clearly and it says, “He stores up sound wisdom for the upright…” The upright is the one who is in the relationship and has right standing with the Father.
Daniel had the boldness to go to God when confronted with that difficult situation because of the relationship he had developed. Beloved, what is the condition of your relationship with your Father? What is the quality of your prayer life? As believers, we have the gift of the Holy Spirit, evidenced by speaking in tongues. But how many of us take advantage of this? God reveals incredible things in righteousness when we pray in tongues. But some of us don’t know it. Unfortunately, to our detriment, some of us think of God as a spare tyre. The God that revealed the king’s dream and its interpretation to Daniel is still on the throne and He is no respecter of persons.
Beloved, you are called to be the lighthouse wherever you find yourself. In your office, you should be indispensable by reason of the wisdom of God that is revealed through you. But you must take your relationship with God seriously. Like Daniel, choose to function on the superior platform of godly wisdom and you will be distinguished.
