Eccl. 9:13-18 – This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me: There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city, yet no man remembered that same poor man. Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless, the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard. The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools. Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroyeth much good”
You need uncommon wisdom to be more than a conqueror. Prov. 2:1-7, Prov. 9:10
It is what you know that you apply. Wisdom is relevant everywhere and for everything. Wisdom, knowledge, and understanding work hand in hand, package in the same Holy Spirit.
What is Wisdom?
Wisdom is the know-how for every matter of interest. Eccl. 10:15 – “The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city“
Wisdom is divine know-how with proof. Despite the experiences of Joseph, he remained more than a conqueror. That is the transforming power of wisdom.
One of the vivid virtues seen in Joseph was the fear of the Lord. Gen. 39:9
No matter how wise you are today, you must build on it before tomorrow otherwise, the success of today may become a failure tomorrow. Dan. 1:8, Dan. 2:19
At the root of supernatural wisdom is the fear of the Lord. Ps. 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the holy reverence that makes man depart from sin. Prov. 8:13. If you don’t purpose in your heart not to sin, you will be falling and rising. Job 28:12-28
No intellectual search or currency can give wisdom. The root of wisdom is the fear of the lord, and the fruit is a departure from iniquity.
The channels of supernatural wisdom:
- Applied Revelation of the word. Matt. 7:24-25 – “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock” Until there is an application, there will still remain frustration. James 1:22-25
- Through inspiration or inspired insights
You are expected to be always inspired as he is. We are built to live by inspiration and revelation. Inspiration and revelation enhance the quality of our living.
Wisdom distinguishes those who have it.
Father take more of me and give me more of your wisdom.
