Get Wisdom – David Ibiyeomie

Prov.4:7-9 – Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

When one fails a principal course in school, he/she will not be able to graduate. That is why students invest more time in their major/principal courses. Therefore, the wisdom question is the greatest question that you must solve in your Christian journey.

Wisdom is the most important asset you need to excel in life; you need it to make the most of your life here on earth. There are all kinds of wisdom like common sense, intellectual wisdom and diabolical wisdom but the wisdom of God is above all.

John 3:31 –He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

James 3:17 – 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.

Intellectual wisdom is no guarantee for success in life and destiny. There are so many people with all kinds of degrees and they are still failures in life. Diabolical wisdom is seen when people subscribe to all kinds of occultic powers but when you get the wisdom of God, it announces you to your world.

Wisdom for above puts you above all life situations and circumstances. It makes you stand out far above all your peers and that is divine wisdom.

1 Cor.2:6-8 –Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Your glory is hid in the wisdom of God. When the wisdom of God is at work in your life, the glory of God on your life will be unfolded for all men to see. In Gen. 41: 39-45, God’s wisdom went through a prisoner {Joseph}, and they could not find a match in that city. The wisdom of God showed up in Joseph and humbled the pride of the wise in the city. Joseph did not only have understanding of the dream but he also prescribed a sound solution to dealing with the situation.

To get this divine wisdom, you must be ready to pay the price because there is nothing of value without a great price. There are spiritual parameters you must put in place if you must enjoy the wisdom from above. First, you must pant for knowledge of God’s word which is the source of wisdom and knowledge is the raw material for wisdom. It takes knowledge to walk in wisdom. That is why God said that my people are destroyed for lack of Knowledge.

Hosea 4:6 –My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Today, as you begin to thirst for the knowledge of God’s word, the wisdom of God will announce you to your world! You will take over far above all your peers in the name of Jesus! For ever stagnation you have experienced in the past, you will enjoy double restoration in the name of Jesus the Christ –Amen!!!

God bless you
