Word Study For Today: The Book Of Psalms Chapter 37
Devotion: BECOME A WONDER.
Text: I Kings10:23-28. | Acts 6:1-15. | Luke 21:15.
The wisdom of God turns you into a WONDER, an EXTRAORDINARY MAN, an ANGEL, a SOUGHT- AFTER.
Wisdom will distinguish you and cause you to be preferred and chosen.
>Acts 6:3(GW)==>“So, brothers and sisters, choose seven men whom the people know are spiritually wise. We will put them in charge of this problem. Seven of a whole lot of people were chosen because their wisdom distinguished them. >1Kings.10:24(NKJV)==> Now all the earth sought the presence of Solomon to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.
All the earth sought to be in Solomon’s presence just to hear his God given wisdom. There’s a God given wisdom; and that is the wisdom that attracts the whole earth. There is another form of wisdom which is earthly and sensual full of selfishness and schemings. >James 3:14-16(NKJV)==>14)But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15)This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. 16)For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.
The wisdom that will give you the distinguishing edge in life is such as is given of the Lord. The bible says God imputed wisdom in Solomon’s heart. This points also to the fact that the seat of wisdom is your heart and not your head. Every head wisdom is just an idea(a carnal idea), and scriptures refers to it as ‘foolishness’ or ‘folly’. >Proverbs 21:30 (NKJV) ==> There is no wisdom or understanding or counsel against the Lord. Whatever wisdom you claim you have which is against the Will of God is not the wisdom of God. It is folly >>> e.g scheming(when you scheme for position), sweet tongue/cajoling etc. >Ecclesiastes 2:13 ==>Then I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness.
WISDOM EXCELS FOLLY. Wisdom distinguishes you from those who speak of themselves from their canal ideas. It is the wisdom imputed into you by God, that gives such authority that no man gainsays. It causes your word become ace and unarguable.
Wisdom will make your submissions unopposed. Wisdom will give you a voice >Luke 21:15 (GW)==> “I will give you words and wisdom that none of your enemies will be able to oppose or prove wrong.”
>Acts 6:10 (GW)==>They couldn’t argue with Stephen because he spoke with the wisdom that the Spirit had given him.”
Some people from the synagogue rose up in dispute against Stephen but they were unable to resist or refute the wisdom of Stephen. When God imputes wisdom in your heart no man will be able to gain say. The wisdom of God turns you into a WONDER in your world. >>>For Solomon every one wanted to come into His presence just to hear from him. >>>For Stephen, they looked at him and saw he wasn’t talking ‘flesh’ as they were; his reasoning was as that of an angel.
EXUDE WISDOM; BECOME A WONDER!
**Worship God Almighty, the embodiment of Wisdom.
**Speak in the language of Wisdom for 15minutes.
**Pray that from today every head wisdom/folly/foolishness/scheming, will be erased from you by the power in the blood of Jesus.
**Cry to the Lord to input His wisdom in your heart.
**Pray that as you begin to exhume the wisdom as input in your heart by God and by this that you become a sought after in your generation; a WONDER that men will COME & SEE.
