The Benefits Of Divine Wisdom – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).
In Ephesians chapter one, the Spirit of God, through the Apostle Paul, prayed thus for the church at Ephesus: “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him” (Ephesians 1:17Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)).
Notice the focus of the prayer: that God would grant them “the spirit of wisdom and revelation.” Walking in divine wisdom is so important in the life of a Christian. If you have access to God’s Word, you have access to divine wisdom, for the Word of God is the wisdom of God.
It doesn’t matter what you may have experienced in life; it doesn’t matter who your advisers are; it doesn’t matter how many books you’ve read or what you’ve seen in life; if you don’t have the Word in you, you’re bereft of the wisdom of God. And for you to be a true success in life, you need wisdom. Wisdom is the principal thing (Proverbs 4:7Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)); in other words, it’s the real deal; it’s what you need.
The wisdom of men may take you some distance; only the wisdom of God will take you all the way, and make you an all-around success.
The Bible says Christ has been made unto you wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)); therefore, you don’t lack wisdom. Christ, in whom have hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge, lives in you; so you have access and insight into mysteries and secrets.
You’re super-intelligent, sagacious and highly perceptive. Acknowledge this about you, and walk in this light.
The Bible says, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus” (Philemon 1:6). Christ is your wisdom. Affirm it! Declare that you don’t make bad decisions, because the Spirit of wisdom is at work in you.
