God’s wisdom is not common sense, it’s ‘heaven sense.’ Last week, I showed you the avenues for activating the gift of divine wisdom. This week, as I conclude the series, I will be teaching on how you can receive the Spirit of wisdom, in order to be a highflier.
The issue of divine wisdom cannot be overstressed, because nothing distinguishes a person like the wisdom of God. There is, therefore, a spiritual dimension to wisdom. You don’t force the issues of life through physical strength. Wisdom is not a product of mental exertion. It is an issue of the Spirit. You need to open up to the Spirit of wisdom and let the wisdom of God flow through you and manifest.
The Spirit of wisdom is an excellent Spirit. It produces excellence—the ability to excel, to get to the top and to stay above. An excellent Spirit took Daniel to the throne. The same Spirit will take you to your own throne too!
The Holy Spirit is essentially the custodian of the wisdom of God. He searches all things (I Corinthians 2:10). Recognize that divine wisdom is an ‘impartable’ virtue, because its principal Conveyor is the Holy Spirit.
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). You have to earnestly covet it (I Corinthians 12:31).
What is in divine wisdom?
It’s your eternal cure from depression: Divine wis-dom is God’s capital cure for depression (Proverbs 3:13,18). 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: Divine wisdom guarantees long life (Proverbs 3:16). It guarantees riches and honour (Proverbs 3:16, 18).
This wisdom enhances your pleasantness or your pleasures (Proverbs 3:17).
It guarantees peace (Proverbs 3:17). The wisdom of God cancels out the battles of your life.
This wisdom releases favour upon the carrier (Pro-verbs 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 (Proverbs 3:19).
It delivers supernatural triumph: It levels out mount-ains as if they never existed (Job 28:7-20).
It commands results in impossible cases: Divine wis-dom is never short of results. No circumstances or sit-uation can stop it from delivering its results. Divine wisdom will pave the way out of the prison for you to be in 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: (Job 28:11). Divine wisdom controls the element. So, divine wisdom made Daniel indestructible by lions. Also, Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego were indestructible by 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.
