Topic: Seek After Wisdom [Saturday September 9, 2017]
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom:…”(Proverbs 4:7 KJV)
These are the last days and the world and her leaders have no answers to the economic, health, peace, and educational and other challenges they are facing. On a daily basis, we are inundated with news of strange happenings; news of disasters across the world and no one seems to have any explanations. It will not get better in the world. For the Bible says “…the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people:…” (Isaiah 60:2 KJV). However, even as things get worse in the world, these are the best times for the believer, because we are the light of the world. Therefore, you should shine as the light that God has made you to be. One of the key ways to shine as a believer in this day and time is to operate in the wisdom of God.
As believers, we have been made kings and priests unto our God. We have a duty, therefore, to search out the hidden wisdom that the world is in dire need of. Of what use would the church be if we cannot proffer the solutions to the economic, educational, family, social, and health challenges that have beleaguered the world today? That’s why God has placed us here at such a time as this.
Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV) says, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” The key to accessing this wisdom is seeking and searching. Develop an intimate relationship with the Father. It is only through intimate fellowship with the Lord that he reveals all that he has stored up for your glory. You are called to be a solution provider. You are the light and you must be able to give direction wherever it is needed. Godly wisdom will distinguish you. Leverage on it! I decree that this year, you will stand out amongst equals. Men shall kiss your lips because you have the right answer.
