Christians Have Divine Wisdom
One of the greatest blessings of being a child of God and a Christian is having Christ in us. Christ is God’s wisdom and by becoming born again we have the wisdom of God in us. Scriptures says; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—I Corinthians 1:28–30 NKJV
A Christian is not without wisdom, Christ is our wisdom. This is more than what Solomon and Daniel had in their days, they had a measure of God’s wisdom but we have all of His wisdom in us.
Here is another scripture; In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence. Ephesians 1:7–8 NKJV
We are rich in wisdom talking about the Christians. Having the understanding that we are God’s children is good but more importantly is understanding how rich we are in wisdom.
God Is Making His Wisdom Known Only Through The Church Today
The Church is the greatest blessing to the world today. Christians are the Church, everyone who is born again belongs to that Church of Jesus. It is through us, the Church, Christians that God is making His wisdom known to all principalities, powers, and authorities.
To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him. Ephesians 3:8–12 NKJV
We embody the wisdom of God today. Everywhere a Christian appears it is the manifestation and revelation of the wisdom of God. This is why the world cannot understand the Christians. Our wisdom is too much.
Every Christian Should Walk In Wisdom And Understanding
We have been blessed with God’s wisdom and we have the Holy Spirit abiding in us. Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Knowledge and Understanding. He lives in the Christians to teach us and give us understanding of things and the deep things of God. All the riches and blessings of God already tabernacle in us, you can see that we are not disadvantaged at all.
We are not lacking in any wisdom or understanding but we must consciously walk in this wisdom and understanding that the Spirit of God is giving us. Apostle Paul, knowing how important it is for Christians to walk in God’s wisdom and understanding pray for the Christians. These are his prayers for the Ephesian Church.
“For this reason, we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding” Colossians 1:9
We are the Church who is here today and that prayer is good for us at this time also. If apostle was to be here today he will pray that prayer for all the Christians.
There are men in the Old Testament who despite having a shadow of what was to come walked in wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Today, we have what these men don’t have, so we have no excuse not to do better than them because we live in the fulfillment of the scriptures.
Imagine walking in the fulfilment of the above prayer! Your life would be an endless manifestation of the excellence of the Spirit. In every place, and in every situation, you’d know exactly what to do. This actually is the way God expects us to live and walk, it is walking in supernatural understanding. It is an understanding that is beyond this sense realm.
Elisha Walk In Supernatural Understanding And Wisdom
The Prophet Elisha manifested this kind of supernatural understanding and wisdom back in Bible days. One day, he and some other prophets were at Jordan, and as one of them hewed down a tree, his axe-head pulled off and sank in the river. The axe had been borrowed, and so he cried out to Elisha for help (2 Kings 6:5). In his response, Elisha simply cut off a tree branch and tossed it at the spot where the axe-head fell, and instantly, the axe-head floated up to the surface! How did Elisha know to do that? By the wisdom of God!
Isaac Walk In Supernatural Wisdom and Understanding
In the days of Isaacs, there was a severe famine in Canaan, and he was about to leave for another city when God instructed him to remain in Canaan.
The Bible records that, in spite of the drought, Isaac dug wells and found water. Meanwhile, everyone else did the same and found no water. Also, in that same year, Isaac
“…sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous” (Genesis 26:12-13).
Why did he prosper exceedingly in a land where everyone else experienced severe hunger, poverty, and deprivation? It was because God gave him supernatural insight as to what to do.
If you study about him in the scriptures, you’ll discover he’s one of those in the Old Testament who, we’re told, often took time to meditate:
“And Isaac went out to meditate in the field in the evening…” (Genesis 24:63).
Meditating on God’s Word causes you to be filled with the knowledge of God’s will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
We Are Living Now In Bible Days
The Bible days are not over yet, we are still living in the Bible days. Those folks live in the Old Testament but we are living in the New Testament. They lived in the time prophesies were made and given revealing what was coming and talking about us. The Christians practically live in the times of fulfilment of the prophesies of old. What this means is that, we stand a better chance to live a more glorious life than those folks. We stand a better chance of manifesting the supernatural than those folks did. Walk in supernatural wisdom, walk in supernatural understanding.
How To Walk In Supernatural Wisdom And Understanding
The way to walk in supernatural wisdom and understanding is by walking in the word and living by the Spirit. Let the word of God control your life and dictates what you do. Allow the Holy Spirit lead your path. This is the only way you can walk in this kind of wisdom and understanding.
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 8:12 NKJV
The only way to follow Jesus is in and through His words. When you follow the word of God you are following Jesus, this way you would always walk in wisdom and understanding. The word of God gives light and it gives direction, that is supernatural wisdom and understanding, divine insight.
The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple. Psalms 119:130 NKJV
Let the word of God direct your path and let the Holy Spirit guide your path. Holy Spirit is the only true Teacher who can teach you the truth and teach you all things.
Holy Spirit Is The True Teacher Who Can Be Trusted
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:26 NKJV
Teaching God’s children all things is the ministry of the Holy Spirit and you can trust everything He teaches you.
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. I John 2:20, 27 NKJV
Holy Spirit will never mislead you and He will never teach you the wrong thing. He will always guide you in the right path and in the path of glory, victory, excellence, understanding, abundance, etc. Trust Him and He will make you.
