KEY SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 1:8 KJV Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Colossians 2:3, tells us that in Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Out of this he has abounded towards us wisdom and prudence. The word wisdom is translated from the Greek word ‘sophia’ It means the varied knowledge of things, human and divine acquired by experience. It is also defined as skill in the management of affairs. The other virtue abounded to us is prudence. Prudence is ‘phronesis’ in the new testament Greek. Phronesis is defined as knowledge and a holy love for the will of God. Our Lord Jesus functioned in both of these powerful virtues and so was so successful in His life and ministry.
Sophia or natural wisdom is what all men can have. Prudence or phronesis is only imparted by the spirit of God. It is given to all children of God, yet only those who surrender their hearts to please the Lord would walk in this kind of wisdom. In the days of our Lord Jesus, the people of his town asked what wisdom is given unto Him that such mighty works are done by Him (Mark 6:2). Prudence or phronesis is acting in step with the Holy Spirit. It is described as wisdom from above. Jas 3:17 KJV “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy”.
THIS supernatural wisdom is seen in a life by the fruits of righteousness and translated into other practical aspects of life. David was a man who loved the Lord so much. No wonder he exhibited so much wisdom which caused him to excel in every area of life. (2nd kings 14:20). Our key scripture tells us that the Lord has abounded to us this kind of wisdom. Dedicate your life to honor the Lord in all you do, and you will manifest the kind of wisdom that would baffle men. Our world needs solution for so many things. The answers are with us the children of God. Daniel answered the questions of his generation because of his devotion to God We can do better.
I have the wisdom of God. I love the Lord with all my heart. I bring supernatural solutions to my world. My life is an answer to the questions of many. Thank you, heavenly Father.
1Kings 4:29 KJV” And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.”
Dan 2:23 KJV” I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter”.
