BIBLE READING: ISAIAH 11:2; EPHESIANS 1:17
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting: get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7(KJV).
The world is in dire need of solution providers rather than story tellers. In view of this, it is pertinent that we study the Spirit of Wisdom, which is a major key to solving problems. It is commonly said that knowledge is power but that is partially accurate. The truth is that knowledge APPLIED is where the real power lies.
Knowledge is the acquisition of information while understanding is the assimilation of information. Wisdom however, is the correct and productive application of information which yields results. In other words, the Spirit of Wisdom enables the recipient unravel tricky problems that have baffled many for ages. For instance, Joseph not only interpreted the dreams of Pharaoh regarding the imminent 7 years famine that would have decimated the nation of Egypt, but also provided a Divine Solution which had to do with saving 20% of the harvest of the previous 7 years of plenty (see Genesis 41:25-36). This was the result of the Spirit of Wisdom in operation.
Anyone possessing this treasure always has a place of distinction and is always in high demand because people are always looking for results. The Lord Jesus said that, “Wisdom is justified of all her children” (Luke 7:35). That means that, Wisdom is purely result-oriented. Believers who are full of the Spirit of Wisdom are often given a glimpse of impending problems (the Spiritual Gift of the Word of Wisdom) then shows how to tackle them. In other words, it can also be referred to as the Spirit of Insight and Innovation usually powered by foresight. The Spirit of Wisdom makes the recipients proactive. They anticipate complex problems already armed with ready solutions rather than merely reacting to them. Just like Jesus before feeding the 5000 men with five loaves of bread and two fish (John 6:5-6).
Breakthrough ideas in life and ministry are akin to radio waves or frequencies. The Spirit of Wisdom acts as the Device which enables one download the needed ideas or solutions the same way someone searches and finds a radio frequency for a timely broadcast. The Lord Jesus Christ on countless occasions manifested this Spirit, silencing and dumbfounding His opponents in the process. Based on this, He went a step further, promising His disciples (past, present & future); “a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist” (Luke 21:15). That Promise has become a Reality that is available for those who are willing to pay the price of desire. The world as we know it has been plunged into disarray economically, socially and otherwise due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we are currently faced with a third wave of the constantly mutating and deadly virus. A clinical cure for this deadly virus can never be termed an insurmountable obstacle for those filled with the Spirit of Wisdom. The proof of desire is pursuit so earnestly covet this Priceless Treasure.
