Outstanding Results II

In Jos 1:6-7 God encouraged Joshua as he was embarking on his God-given assignment. Joshua had just been anointed successor to Moses. He had seen the challenges that Moses had in leading the Jews. It is possible that the size of the task appeared daunting to him. Joshua needed encouragement for the road that lay ahead.

In John 16:33, Jesus says that there will be trials and challenges along the way. However Jesus says that we should be of good cheer because He has overcome the world. You see there is no situation that you will face that you are not able to overcome by the help of God - 1 Cor 10:13. When Jesus overcame, every one who identified with His victory also overcame. One of the keys to you overcome in every situation is by the wisdom of God. You must prioritize the wisdom of God - Pro 4:7 - because it is the principal thing. 

In 1 Sam 30 David was faced with a very challenging situation. Not only had he lost all his family and possessions but his men had lost everything too. How was David, their leader going to face them? His men must have blamed David because scripture says in 1 Sam 30:6 that they began to contemplate stoning him. What was David's response? David strengthened himself in God. In other words he encouraged himself in the Lord. 

David had seen the wisdom of God in manifestation as he killed Goliath, evaded Saul and won battles. He knew that if he could get the word of God for this particular situation then his victory will be manifested. 1 Sam 30:8 reveals this clearly. David asked God for the next step. How many believers would have reacted the same way in the face of such a major challenge and one of the lowest point of their lives? The reality is not many would. However God's expectation is that you will ask and seek for His wisdom in every situation.

David and his men eventually pursued the enemy, and recovered all that they lost plus interest. David obeyed the Word of God and therefore he was able to walk in the wisdom of God. He succeeded in the face of a situation that seemed insurmountable in the natural perspective. What situation do you find yourself in that seems so difficult? Strengthen yourself in God. Ask and seek His wisdom. He will grant His wisdom to you liberally. Just as David enjoyed, you will also enjoy your victory by the wisdom of God. Have an exceptional day.

Prevailing Wisdom

God has given us His Word so that we can tap into His Wisdom. You see the wisdom of God can be found in His Word. According to scripture in Jer 8:9, the men who rejected the Word of God had no wisdom. 

As a child of God, the Word of God must be precious to you. You must create time to dig into the Word of God on a consistent basis. God told Joshua that as he spent time meditating on the Word of God, he will make his way prosperous - Jos 1:8. In other words, Joshua needed to meditate on the Word of God on a continuous basis in order to access and release the wisdom of God needed to succeed in all that he was called to do.

Enough of trying to make it on your own. Man was never designed to live by his own natural wisdom. Rather God makes His wisdom available through His Word so that you and I can live the life we were created for. Friend, be excited that you are not on your own. In every situation the wisdom of God prevails. As you access and apply the wisdom of God in all of your endeavors, you will enjoy tremendous success.

No More Limits

As a child of God you are righteous; justified with the ability to stand before God without any sense of guilt and condemnation. This is because the sacrifice of Jesus took care of every sin that you have or will commit. When you identified with this sacrifice, your old nature was replaced with a brand new nature. 

One of the benefits of being a child of God is that you now have access to the divine wisdom of God - Luk 1:17. Before you became born again, you only had access to natural wisdom. Natural wisdom is based on the  natural senses. By definition natural wisdom is limited because there is only so much man can know or discover by his own wisdom.

However the wisdom of God is perfect - Jam 3:16. This wisdom has no limits or bounds. This is because the source of this wisdom is God. God is all-knowing and can be present everywhere at the same time. He existed before time began and continues to exist outside of time. He knows the end from the beginning and everything in between.

Friend get excited because now there is no more limits on you. You don't have to be stranded or confused. You don't have to struggle to make progress. Your Father in Heaven has made His wisdom available for you. It will take the wisdom of God in order for you to fulfill your destiny. Prioritize this wisdom - Pro 4:7; it is the principal thing. Ask God in faith for His wisdom - Jam 1:15-16 -  and He will surely grant it to you. You were made to rule and reign in life by the wisdom of God - Dan 2:21-22.

Wisdom that makes a difference

True wisdom only begins when you begin to respect and revere God - Pro 9:10. Fear in this scripture refers to respect, reverence and honor. Without respect and honor for God and the value of His wisdom you will continue to go back to natural wisdom. However where natural wisdom is limited, the wisdom of God has no limits. Where natural wisdom can fail, the wisdom of God is perfect and has a 100% success rate - Jam 3:17. 

Friend learn to respect God and place His wisdom above all other forms of wisdom. God has made His wisdom available. The first step to accessing His wisdom is identifying with the sacrifice and victory of Jesus. Then you must seek out the wisdom of God in prayer and in His Word. Allow God to lead you through the Holy Spirit and don't rely on your natural wisdom. 

As you walk in the manifested wisdom of God you will enjoy outstanding results. Others will marvel as your life becomes remarkable.

Wisdom Leads to Success III

God desires that you live a glorious life; He always wants the best for you. This is why He stores up His wisdom and hides it away for your benefit - 1 Cor 2:7. He does this so that the enemy who seeks to steal, kill and destroy - John 10:10 - will not gain access to this wisdom. 

The wisdom of God can be accessed by a child of God. As a child of God the Holy Spirit dwells on your inside - 1 John 4:4. The Holy Spirit is a teacher and a revealer; He specializes in revealing the deep things of God to the children of God. 

Friend allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the wisdom of God to you. As you read the word of God be conscious of His presence. As you face situations be aware and listen for His promptings. Then follow His guidance and apply the wisdom of God. You will enjoy a 100% success rate.

Outstanding Results

The wisdom of God is perfect; it has a 100% success rate - Jam 3:17. In other words you cannot fail if you walk in divine wisdom. If anything that resembles failure is present then it was not the wisdom of God in operation. According to scripture in Matt 11:19, divine wisdom will always produce results. It will be evident to everyone that divine wisdom was in operation.

Friend if you want to live a life characterized by lasting success then you must rely on the wisdom of God and not natural wisdom - Ecc 10:10. The wisdom of God is limitless while natural wisdom is limited. The wisdom of God always seeks good out of every situation. On the other hand the motive of natural wisdom can be questionable.

You have the Greater One, the Holy Spirit, living inside of you as a child of God - 1 John 4:4. He is there to lead, guide and teach you. Acknowledge His presence, and consciously tap into His wisdom in the place of prayer and reading the Word, so that you can excel in every area of life.

Have an exceptional day!

Wisdom leads to success II

According to scripture the words that come out of a man's mouth come from the core of the man - Pro 18:4. In other words what a man says and the wisdom that he displays through his speech is dependent on what is stored in his spirit. Pro 4:23 goes ahead to buttress this: "keep your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life." Heart here refers to the spirit of a man.

Every child of God has the Holy Spirit dwelling on his inside. The Holy Spirit is greater than anything in the world - 1 John 4:4. The child of God has continuous access to the superior wisdom of God at all times and in all situations. Therefore the wellspring of wisdom inside a believer is like a flowing brook that never runs dry; it always supplies words of wisdom - Pro 18:4. 

The supernatural wisdom of God is available to you as a child of God. However you must dig deep in the Word in your personal time and be sensitive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. You have what it takes to succeed in every situation by virtue of the Holy Spirit dwelling on your inside. It's time to take your rightful place and excel by the wisdom of God.

Have an exceptional day!
