Wisdom and Patience

Human beings are naturally impatient. There is a spirit of impatience that is pervasive in the world. People tend to want to know everything now and to have all the answers immediately. Most times people don't want to spend the time required to acquire the wisdom needed. 

As a child of God you are called to live by faith. A life lived by faith is a life lived in patience. God will reveal things to you line upon line and precept upon precept - Isa 28:10. He will not reveal everything to you all at once because this can damage your walk of faith. You see faith is believing in the unseen based on the Word of God.

God's wisdom is limitless. This wisdom is available to you. He wants to shower this wisdom upon you. However you must be committed to walking with Him and remaining in His presence. You will not be able to download all of the wisdom that you require all at once. However along the path to fulfilling your journey God will reveal you what is necessary for every phase of your life.

Friend make the wisdom of God a priority; it is the principal thing. Remain patient as you walk with God. He will not forsake you. Rather He will reveal His wisdom to you along the way. By His divine wisdom you will rule and reign in life.

Irresistible Wisdom

Jesus promised in Luk 21:15 that He will give you such wisdom that others will find irresistible and irrefutable. You see the wisdom of God is perfect and complete. When you are operating in this wisdom your results are undeniable. 

This was evident in the life of Stephen. When the twelve disciples were looking for people to serve in the ministry of helps the qualifications included being full of wisdom and the Holy Spirit - Acts 6:3. Stephen was one the people selected who met the criteria. Later on in Acts 6:10 this was demonstrated in Stephen's results. According to scripture in Acts 6:8-10, Stephen did great things and the people were unable to resist wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke.

When you operate in the wisdom of God, by the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, you will enjoy outstanding results that speak for themselves. This wisdom is meant for your supernatural breakthrough. Factor in and release your faith for the divine wisdom of God in all of your endeavors so that you can impact your world as God intended.

Multiplied Wisdom

One of the most important ways to receive Godly wisdom is through Godly counsel. Godly counsel acts as a safety net on your path for fulfilling your destiny - Pro 11:14. In other words you will avoid mistakes and traps set by the enemy as a result of counsel received from others. Wise people realize that they don't know everything and they surround themselves with wise counselors.

Godly counsel can come from friends and mentors. This is why it is important to pay attention and to carefully select those who you allow to speak into your life. You can't just get advice from anyone. Look around you regularly, and evaluate those who are currently giving you advice. Are they suitable for your destiny?

Child of God don't take the source of your counsel lightly. This can be the difference between accelerating towards your goals or stagnating at the same level. Learn to be discerning by the help of the Holy Spirit. Permit the right people to counsel you and your wisdom will be multiplied.

The right relationships are important for your success

God has ordained certain relationships for your destiny. You must remain sensitive to those relationships and treat them as treasure. According to scripture in Pro 13:20, if you walk with wise men you will be wise. It if you are surrounded by fools you will walk in foolishness which results in destruction.

Friend you need the company of wise men in order to fulfill your destiny. There will be times is your life when you need the right word to encourage you. Other times you will need the right word to know what to do. If the people around you or in your company are full of Godly wisdom then you can be sure that the right words will be spoken in the right situation. On the other hand if those in your company are not full of Godly wisdom, the advice that you will get will take you off course in life.

So you must choose your friends wisely. This is an ongoing process. From time to time evaluate whether those who surround you are the relationships that you need for your destiny. Your future is too important to be subject to the wrong relationships based on sentiments.

As a child of God you are expected to live by faith - Rom 1:17. This faith is not meant to be based on natural wisdom. In other words you are not meant to live by the wisdom of men - 1 Cor 2:5. You see the wisdom of men is limited. Natural wisdom only goes so far. It is impossible for man to know everything there is to know.

Wisdom leads to success

You need wisdom in order to excel in life. According to scripture in Pro 4:7, wisdom is the principal thing. In other words wisdom is the most important thing.

There are 2 kinds of wisdom - natural and divine wisdom. Natural wisdom is wisdom based on man's knowledge and is limited in nature. On the other hand divine wisdom comes from God and is unlimited. A life based on natural wisdom is a limited life.

However if you have access to divine wisdom then you will know what to do in every situation; you will never be left stranded or confused. Make it a priority to develop your relationship with God and His Word so that you can effectively access His divine wisdom.

Have an exceptional day.

Supernatural Health Insurance

God promised His people that if they obeyed His commandments they would not get sick - Ex 15:26. As a child of God you are one of His people. In this dispensation Jesus left you with two commandments - Matt 22:36-40 - with one word in common - love. As you translate Ex 15:26 into this dispensation then it's clear that obeying the commandments to love will ensure your freedom from sickness and disease.

Friend Jesus already died on the cross and was resurrected. He bore our sicknesses and diseases - Is 53:5 - so that we don't have to be sick. You see you were healed over 2,000 years as a result of the sacrifice of Jesus. One of the ways that you remain immune to sicknesses and diseases is to consistently walk in the love of God. You must resist every temptation to walk contrary to the God-kind of love with the help of the Holy Spirit - Rom 5:5.

A life of victory!

As a child of God in this age you are a partaker of the new covenant. This new covenant came into being as a result of the death and resurrection of Jesus. You were drafted into this covenant when you became born again. This new covenant is described as better than the old, previous covenant - Heb 8:6. As great as all the old testament men and women of God were they were operating in a covenant that is less than the new covenant.

One of the benefits of this new covenant which makes it better than the old covenant is the fact that you have God living in you, and not just God with or for you, as was the case in the old covenant. You see in the old dispensation God would come upon a man and enable this man to do what he was called to do. However in this dispensation God has sent the Holy Spirit to live on your inside 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. This gives you an edge.

Friend, you are empowered to do great things because the Greater One dwells on your inside - 1 John 4:4. There is no need to fear whatever the world throws at you because you have what it takes to live a life of victory - 1 John 5:4. In every situation you win. Thank God for the gift of the Holy Spirit!

Have an exceptional day!

Love, a gateway to long life

God promised His people a long life - Ex 23:26. This promise extends to you who are now a child of God. As a child of God, God is committed to you living long to fulfill your purpose. One of the conditions for living a long life is love as outlined is Psa 91:14-16:

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

This series of scripture ends with a promise of long life and starts with love. It is a revelation of God's love for you - John 3:16 - and your love for God that causes you to confess Jesus as Lord and Savior. A life committed to love is a life devoid of strife, malice and unforgiveness.

Strife, malice and unforgiveness are blessing blockers. Where these are present evil is present including a short, unfulfilled life - Jam 3:16. You must avoid everything that is contrary to the love of God. Friend, God's desire is that you will live long. As a child of God long life is part of your salvation package. Don't be deceived into thinking otherwise. Love is the foundation of this long life.

Selfless Love II

You are called to love like God loves - Rom 5:5. The God kind of love is selfless and unconditional - 1 Cor 13:4-8. This love is not natural in nature; it is supernatural. In order to walk in the God kind of love you will need to tap into the assistance of the Holy Spirit - Rom 5:5. You will need to overcome the temptation to respond according to the flesh by the help of the Holy Spirit.

The God kind of love is sacrificial. It will cost you something. It will feel easier to not walk in love. In fact you may feel justified to walk in malice and strife in order to get a message across to another person. You may also feel that the other person doesn't deserve love because of their actions. However in all situations including these examples you are called to express the love of God - 1 Cor 13:4-8.

Friend God expects you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice - Rom 12:1. This means that you will have to ignore your flesh's desires to act contrary to the God-kind of love. In other words you will have to make the sacrifice to walk in the God-kind of love irrespective of the situation. No matter how difficult it may seem, you have what it takes to love like God. Let the love of God be expressed through you.

Selfless Love

According to scripture in Heb 10:10, you "have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." The word sanctified is translated from the Greek word 'hagiazo' which means separated unto God. In other words through the sacrifice of Jesus and your identification with this sacrifice you have been set apart from others to live a life aligned with God's instructions and directions.

One of the things you have been set apart for is to love like God loves. Jesus left you and I with two great commandments; to love God and to love your neighbor - Matt 22:36-40. Both commandments have one word in common - love. The word love used here refers to the God-kind of love which is a selfless love. In other words you are called to a life dedicated to selfless love.

The Greatest Love III

One of the ways you can identify whether someone loves God is that they observe God's instructions and follow His directions - John 14:21. In order to truly love God you must first have a revelation of God's love. When you know the love of God then you will know that any instruction given by God is ultimately for your good. God cannot direct you into failure.

Friend your trust in God is dependent on your love for Him. You must trust that God only has good thoughts about you. His desire is for you to have a great future - Jer 29:11. As you trust God He will direct your paths into success - Pro 3:5-6.
