LAST week, I showed you the importance of the Spirit of Wisdom, in enjoying a world of no limits. This week, I will show you how to receive the impartation of the Spirit of wisdom.
The Holy Spirit is essentially the Spirit of wisdom. Nothing distinguishes a person like the wisdom of God. The Holy Spirit is the custodian of the wisdom of God. Wisdom is all you need to win the battles of your life. Divine wisdom is an ‘impart able’ virtue, because its Principal Conveyor is the Holy Spirit (II Timothy 1:6-7). Every gift and manifestation of the Spirit answers to a thirst of man. You cannot be empowered by the Holy Spirit without a proven thirst (Isaiah 44:3-4).
What is in Divine wisdom?
It’s our eternal cure from depression: Divine wisdom is God’s capital cure for depression. “Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.” (Proverbs 3:13). “…Happy is every one that retaineth her.” (verse 18). So, when you retain the flow of divine wisdom, you live a happy and joyful life, free eternally from depression. You can’t buy this with money!
This wisdom guarantees long life: “Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.” (verse 16). Divine wisdom guarantees long life.
It guarantees riches and honour (Proverbs 3:16,18).
This wisdom enhances your pleasantness or your pleasures (verse 17).
It guarantees peace (Proverbs 3:17). The wisdom of God cancels out the battles of your life.
This wisdom releases favour upon the carrier (Proverbs 8:35). What skill will never bring your way, God’s favour will bring it this time.
This wisdom is creative: It does not wait for result, it creates result. God’s wisdom is creative. That is why it is never stranded; it always has a way out of every situation. “The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.” (Proverbs 3:19).
It delivers supernatural triumph: It levels out mountains as if they never existed (Job 28:7-20). Faith is God’s wisdom for your supernatural victory; it overturns the mountains by the root.
It commands results in impossible cases: Divine wisdom is never short of results. No circumstances or situation can stop it from delivering its results. Divine wisdom will pave the way out of the prison for you to be free for the palace. Divine wisdom brought Joseph out of the prison and launched him straight to the palace! No situation can stop divine wisdom from delivering tangible results.
It does not see problems, it sees precious things: “His eye seeth every precious thing” (Job 28:10). Divine wisdom sees precious things in the midst of trash.
It controls the element: “He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light” (Job 28:11). Divine wisdom controls the element. So, divine wisdom made Daniel indestructible by lions. Also Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego were indestructible in fire, because of divine wisdom.
Where can wisdom be found?
In the Word of God: Psalm 119:98-100.
Wisdom can be found in places: Jeremiah 3:15-17.
It is reserved in persons: For instance, Moses had it, and so he could give it. All the fundamentals of scriptures came through Moses by the operation of the Spirit of wisdom in him, so he could impart it upon the man called Joshua.
Receive the person of the carrier: A guest you do not welcome in your home, you are not entitled to the goodies with him. So, receive the person (Matthew 10:41).
Believe in the Ministry of the Carrier: Believe in his ministry and then you can access what he carries with ease.
Honour the carrier: By so doing, whatever he carries naturally flows into you. Honour means, you are emotionally attached to him and then what he carries flows easily into you.
