WORDS OF HOPE:
Wisdom, according to Proverbs 4:7, is the principal thing and foremost for every of life’s undertaking. By wisdom this whole world was created; it is a builder thus. That is to say without wisdom, try as you may, success will elude you.
From our anchor text, Christ Jesus has become unto us WISDOM. In the Greek, the word is sophía, which means insight, skill, intelligence etc. This is a consciousness God wants us to have of Christ. Christ is your wisdom therefore you cannot think foolish thoughts. It means you are sagacious. That is you are enabled to deal wisely or appropriately in the issues of life. You are not dumb; you make intelligent decisions which have a positive outcome always.
The scriptures [Matthew 8:23-27] report that once Jesus was on a journey with His disciples and slept in the boat. Suddenly, the winds began to beat against the boat and water entered into it and they were about to drown. In all this commotion, Jesus was busy sleeping on a cushion. Out of fear, the disciples woke Him up chanting “… Lord, save us: we perish…” When He arose, Jesus “… rebuked the wind and the sea: and there was great calm.” [v26, Matthew 8].
Hallelujah! Christ Jesus did not shiver, He did not quake, He did not join the disciples in collecting the water from the boat, rather He knew exactly what to do. He rebuked the wind and sea. Likewise, because Jesus is your wisdom, you
know exactly what to do. Life for you is not trial and error. It is not a game of chance. No! It is a path that shines brighter and brighter unto the full light of the day.
Even now start declaring “Christ Jesus is my wisdom therefore I am wise. I know exactly what to do. I cannot be confused. My life is a long stream of wonders, signs and miracles. I think wise thoughts. I say wise things; I imagine wise things …… Hallelujah!!!”
• Thank God for Christ as your wisdom. Celebrate Him for a wonderful life of excellence.
• Declare that this manifold wisdom of God is fully expressive in the church and among believers the world over
I am wise. Therefore I deal wisely in the affairs of life and my profiting abounds for all men to see to the praise of my God and King. Amen
