“And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had rendered; and they feared the king, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to administer justice.” I Kings 3:28 NKJV
There’s solution for many problems of life, what we need is the wisdom of God. The reason why a lot of us are struggling is because we lack sufficient wisdom to live the victorious and glorious life.
Isn’t it amazing that wisdom was a criterion for choosing men to serve food in the Early Church? The apostles said to the people, “We apostles should spend our time teaching the word of God, not running a food program. And so, brothers, select seven men who are well respected and are full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will give them this responsibility. Then we apostles can spend our time in prayer and teaching the word.” Acts of the Apostles 6:2-4
If they needed wisdom for a food program, we certainly need wisdom for our relationships, ministries, jobs and businesses, leadership and governance, raising children, and so on. Wisdom is the principal thing; we’ve got to desire more and more of it. Amen.
I declare today that the wisdom of God is in me. It is growing in me everyday, it is manifesting in everything I do, and becoming evident to all. Amen.
