Every born again believer is by redemption ordained and destined to reign on this earth. For the scriptures say in Revelation 5:10; “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”
But why are many not reigning in life as born again believers? Are we not been made to reign on this earth? Yes, we are surely been made and destined to reign as kings but kings only reign successfully on this earth by the Spirit of Wisdom. For the scriptures say in Proverbs 8:15; “By me (wisdom) kings reign and princes decree justice.”
So for a believer who is made a king by redemption to reign effectively on this earth, he or she ought to acquire and operate in divine wisdom. This is necessary because this earth was founded by wisdom and it will only take wisdom to control it for our advantage. Prob 3:19; “The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. “
Again, it took the spirit of Wisdom to enable our Lord and Master Jesus Christ to accomplish His purpose and vision on this earth. For the scriptures once again say He, Jesus, grew strongly in the Spirit, full of WISDOM and the grace of God was upon Him…Luke 2:40.
No wonder His ministry was amply full of wisdom prowess and exploits. For example, the scriptures say in Mark 6:2 that; “…… .and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?”
Due to its potency and power, the Spirit of Wisdom is described in the scriptures as the PRINCIPAL thing and we have been instructed from scriptures to get it, as it is our visa for exploits and for winning the battles of life…Prob 4:7-8; “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
WHAT, THEN, IS WISDOM?
Wisdom is the right application of knowledge acquired to solve the challenges of life. It can also be defined as the inspiration from God through your spirit man that enables us to know what to do, say and how to act or react at any point in life when you are at a crossroad of life….Job 32:8. Ecl 10:10, 15.
TYPES OF WISDOM
Jas 3:15- 17; “This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.”
1. EARTHLY WISDOM
Earthly wisdom is the wisdom we gain out of earthly education in every area of interest. But this wisdom is limited in every issue or battles of life…. John 3:31.
2. SENSUAL WISDOM
This is common-sense wisdom. it is inborn and naturally enables a baby who doesn’t know anything to put his or her mother’s breast right into his mouth and not his or her nose. It is instinct and natural.
3. DEVILISH WISDOM
This is the wisdom that enables the devil to manipulate people deceitfully and rob them of their power in God. This is the wisdom that operates in the satanic kingdom and it is subjected to the power of God and His kingdom… John 10:10, Psalms 103:19.
4. HEAVENLY OR DIVINE WISDOM
This wisdom comes only from God and it is superior to that of devilish wisdom. It mainly operates through the inspiration of the Holy Ghost through us…
It is pure and undefeatable when applied….James 3:17, John 3:31.
SOURCES OF THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM
1. The word of God. The word of God is the main source of wisdom…Matt 7:24, 1 Cor 1:24.
2. Impartation through the Spirit of God…Deut 34:9. 2 Tim 1:7.
3. Prayer and desiring fervently for it…James 1:5
NOTE: Pray fervently for divine wisdom and apply the word of God in your daily life and you shall be lavished with this wisdom, the PRINCIPAL thing that enables and empowers us to REIGN effectively and successfully on this earth.
God bless you all and may the wisdom of God guide you through this week successfully as you win in every aspect of your life in Jesus mighty name.
