Encourage Yourself

Encourage Yourself

(1 Samuel 30:6 NKJV)

Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.

It is alright to have people around to encourage you when you feel very discouraged. But you cannot always count on that. There will be times when it seems you are all alone by yourself. What do you do when no one is there to comfort and encourage you? Do you give up and call it quits? You don’t have to. There is always a way out.

The wisdom of God is released when your spirit man is in the right shape. You cannot afford to stay discouraged. In fact, you need all the courage you can get to stay on top of the situation. It is good to know that you can turn to the Holy Spirit. Jesus called Him another “Comforter” because He knows how to comfort better than any man.

He is right there within you to cheer you up at all times. Stir yourself up. You can’t afford to allow self-pity to keep you away from divine wisdom. Put God’s word in your mouth and let the Holy Spirit do what He knows best. Be encouraged, you are more than a conqueror.

His Word, Your Wisdom

His Word, Your Wisdom

(Jeremiah 8:9 NKJV)

The wise men are ashamed, They are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the LORD; So what wisdom do they have?

It is so sad to see God’s people subjected to poor standards in life. We see this happen a lot all because many Christians have made light of the most important weapon that heaven has given us, which is the Word of God. You were made to live by the wisdom that is in the Word of God. The world around you should find it difficult to predict you.

Why? Your life is built on the wisdom that the devil is yet to know. The secret to this extraordinary life is available to you. But you will not be able to lay hold on this wisdom until God’s Word becomes real to you. Every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God is your source of wisdom. A man of the Word is a man of wisdom.

He has supernatural insight regarding life situations. Be smart. Place a great value on God’s Word for it is your wisdom! Don’t depend on natural wisdom. In the days we live in, natural wisdom will fail. But wisdom from the Word will always win.

The Fear of The Lord

The Fear of The Lord

(Proverbs 9:10 NKJV)

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Every believer should have a good understanding of what the fear of the Lord is. A revelation of this truth will not only liberate the saints of God but will also lead them to a place of great reward. Let us start by looking at what the fear of the Lord is not.

It is not being afraid of God. God is love and the Bible says that perfect love casts out all fear. So, God will never tolerate anything in the family of fear. Fear is the nature of the devil. Without fear, the devil is totally incapacitated.

How then can God encourage His children to be fearful in dealing with Him? “The fear of the Lord” is a phrase that denotes reverence, respect and honor. It is this kind of attitude that releases the wisdom of God in a believer’s life.

The fear of the Lord will make the believer obey the instructions and commandments of God. Make up your mind today that you will keep the door of wisdom open in your life by honoring the Lord in all your ways.

Let wisdom flow freely by maintaining an attitude of reverence and honor unto the Lord.

Hidden for Your Glory

Hidden for Your Glory

(1 Corinthians 2:7 NKJV)

But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory.

According to the above scripture, God hides His wisdom. You might wonder, “Why?” It is a demonstration of God’s love for you. God is not hiding His wisdom from you but for you. You must realize that man has an enemy who will do everything within his power to stop his progress in life. He is called “the accuser of the brethren”.

He is all out to oppose the saints and it is because of him that God hides the wisdom for your glory. God does not want the devil to have any access to it. He is protecting the wisdom for it not to be contaminated by the devil. The responsibility of the saints is to search for this wisdom through the help of the Holy Spirit.

God wants to reveal this wisdom unto you but it can only be by His Spirit. Work with the Spirit of Revelation because He has the ability to search the deep things of God. He specializes in unveiling the wisdom of God from the written word. Let Him show you the wisdom of your glory. You deserve a glorious life!

Simply Irresistible

Simply Irresistible

(Acts 6:10 NKJV)

And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke.

The ministry of the apostles as recorded in the Acts of Apostles was not just similar to Jesus in terms of the miracles they performed. Just like their Master, the apostles had a testimony of divine wisdom. They were irresistible because of the wisdom of God that was at work in them. The religious leaders of their days were surprised and shocked to the bone; they felt that the move of God should have stopped after the crucifixion of Jesus.

Unknown to them, the same Holy Spirit that anointed Jesus in River Jordan came upon the disciples on the day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit lives within every New Testament believer. A major part of His mission is to prepare believers for anything this present world might bring against them. Hence, you are constantly delivered from the evil of this world because you have the spirit of wisdom.

You cannot be defeated in life because you have the package of the wisdom of God. The principal thing in life is divine wisdom and it is placed within you by the Holy Spirit. Get out there and win. You are irresistible! Believe in the ability of the One inside of you. You have the wisdom for living; nothing can stop you!

Justified by Results

Justified by Results

(Matthew 11:19 NKJV)

The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by her children

Wisdom is not determined by how much information you have accumulated but by the level of results manifesting in your life. Simply put, your wisdom is measured by your results. The application of the information you have is what wisdom is about. It is of no use to be loaded with information that you do not know how to apply.

The ministry of the Holy Spirit involves this rightful application of information. Jesus promised His disciples that the Holy Spirit will bring the information they have received into their remembrance. The Holy Spirit knows what you need at every point in time. Learn about His ministry and cooperate with Him.

He is in charge of the divine wisdom that will bring you great results in life. It is time to allow the Holy Spirit to do what He has been sent to accomplish in your life. Christ, the wisdom of God is within you. Let the wisdom flow by allowing the Holy Spirit, your senior partner, to guide the affairs of your life.

Draw it Out

Draw it Out

(Proverbs 18:4 NKJV)

The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; The wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook.

The wisdom of God that will lead you to great victories is already within you. When the Holy Spirit moved in to live inside of you, He came in with all the wisdom of God. You are loaded! However, you need to be proficient in drawing out this supernatural wisdom. It is not something on the surface; not what your natural body or soul can easily grab.

It is deep-seated in your spirit. Why? That is where the Holy Spirit lives. To walk in the wisdom of God, you must be diligent in spiritual things. The level of attention you give to the word of God and prayer is what will determine how much of the wisdom of God that will be made available to you. Practicing the presence of God also plays a major role in drawing out the wisdom of God. You must be conscious of the presence of the Holy Spirit within you.

The reality of the Holy Spirit in your life will turn on the switch of wisdom. Friend, you cannot afford to be slack. Turn on the light; do not live another day in darkness. Diligently employ the help of the Holy Spirit in you to bring out the wisdom for your life.

Tongue of Wisdom

Tongue of Wisdom

(Luke 21:15 NKJV)

For I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.

Jesus promised His disciples that they would be given such speech and wisdom that none of their opponents will be able to resist or refute. This promise does not just apply to the twelve apostles who worked directly with Jesus.

Rather, it is applicable to everyone that has confessed Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior. This kind of wisdom is a function of the Holy Spirit; the Holy Spirit within you puts you in a position to manifest the wisdom of God.

It is a direct result of the empowerment of the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life. This wisdom is not just for pastors and evangelists. It is available for every member of the kingdom. You should expect it to be in manifestation at your workplace.

The promise of the “tongue of wisdom” is for you. Be conscious of it. Release your faith for it on purpose. Don’t go through life without it. It is your key to supernatural breakthrough. You have a tongue anointed for wisdom!

Chart Your Victory through Counsel

Chart Your Victory through Counsel

Proverbs 11:14 NKJV)

Where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

Counsel has everything to do for the fulfillment of your God-given dream. A wise counsel can make all the difference in your life. It can be the difference between success and failure. God did not create you to function like an island. Rather, He has placed people with godly counsel around you so that you can achieve your dream.

Your dream without adequate counsel will be limited. Moses without the counsel of his father-in-law would have died before his time. He was literally wearing himself out until Jethro, his father-in-law, counseled him to delegate authority to the leaders under him. Stop struggling. You don’t have to fall apart when you can receive help from godly counsel.

Recognize the people that God has positioned in your life today and be open to their counsel. Your upliftment depends on their wisdom because you do not know it all. Find your company of wise counselors and respect their inputs. Be humble enough to learn wisdom from them. This is what wise people do.

Walk with The Wise

Walk with The Wise

(1 Corinthians 2:5 NKJV)

That your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

Wisdom is contagious! It can be increased in your life through association. When you surround yourself with people that are walking in the wisdom of God, you will be imparted with wisdom. God expects you to be responsible where the choice of your friends is concerned. You cannot afford to be sentimental. A relationship that takes you away from the wisdom of God is the last thing you need. How sensitive are you to people that God connects you to?

God will always lead you to people that have what it takes for you to go to the next level. However, it is your responsibility to recognize these people and treat them rightly. If there is any relationship you should take serious, it is such that would afford you the opportunity to be mentored. You need wise mentors that can guide you by the wisdom of God into your destiny. Through these wise men, you will be able to stand in an advantageous position in life.

Friend, learn how to avoid distraction. You do not have any business hanging around people that do not have regard for the wisdom of God. Protect your destiny today by having wise friends.
