Hello my warriors! I will be doing a series on great desires. The topic for this post will be wisdom.
If you take the word ‘WISDOM’ I do believe it comes from the two words WISE, and DOMINION. To be wise, it is like having uncommon knowledge, that no one else will be able to comprehend. To have dominion, it is like having control of everything in your surroundings. The ability to combine the two is an extraordinary gift. I suggest that it is something that we must desire.
The bible tells us in James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (NIV)
The verse is self-explanatory, to have wisdom all you need to do is ask; it is a straightforward process. A man who asked God for wisdom is King Solomon.
2 Chronicles 1: 10-12
10. Give me wisdom and knowledge that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?”
11. God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king,
12. therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have.” (NIV)
King Solomon, desired something no ruler has ever asked for before, this even shocked God. God, even gave King Solomon more than what he asked for, because of his genuine desire. People that have wisdom, are associated with the blessings that King Solomon received from God.
Having no wisdom is not a blessing!
My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children. (NIV)
Prayer: Dear God, I am praying for wisdom to lead my life in the way you want God, so that I may not perish, and never ignore your word. Amen
