«And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory» (1 Corinthians, 2:4-7).The Apostle Paul speaks to us about God’s desire for our faith not to be based on the wisdom of man, the wisdom of this age, but on the wisdom of God. Only God’s wisdom is meant to bring us into the place of glory. The wisdom of God glorifies and exalts us. It is very important for us to open up our hearts and to receive God’s wisdom. Today we often hear about Chinese wisdom, Russian wisdom, Babylonian wisdom etc. But how wonderful it is that we have been given God’s wisdom! The wisdom of God is the highest form of wisdom for all the living. Only this wisdom is able to transform human life, changing it from within (from inside out). That is why God wants our faith to be based on His wisdom and not the wisdom of men.The following Scriptures the shows obvious superiority of God’s wisdom over the human wisdom, which is labelled as earthly, sensual and demonic.
«Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy» (James, 3:13-17).That is why it is important to let God’s Spirit open up to you and me the depth of God’s Word, so that our lives may be filled with the wisdom of God, which is able to elevate us and ease our ways.Ask God today to give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that the deep things of God’s Word would open up to you like never before.Remember, that every person who realizes the lack of wisdom in his or her life and who asks God in faith will receive from God lots of wisdom for his life.May God abundantly bless you this day!Till tomorrow!Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
