THE STRENGTH OF WISDOM: By Rev. Obi Peters

 

Sunday 2nd Service:  | June. 9, 2019 | 8:30am


Any man created by God was created to exhibit the attributes of God.
Read Proverbs 24:3


“Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:” (Proverbs 24:3KJV)


Any man created by God was created to exhibit the attributes of God.
In any area of your life, you are faced with things to build; for example, we have a life to build, marriage to build etc. Let’s see Prov. 14:1 (“Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands). A wise man does not need certificate to succeed. The things that we have blamed in life are nothing to be compared with our lives.

I met a young man who said to me that why his life is like this is because his uncle, who had promised to help him, threw him out and did not help him. The bible said the gift of a man maketh way for him. So stop thinking you are nothing, you are too loaded to fail. Wisdom is a virtue and virtue is a creator of value. When a man encounters wisdom, it will look like foolishness. That is why it is hard for many men to apply wisdom in their lives.

What is wisdom? Wisdom is a comprehensive insight into any matter. Men are not made principals because they are principals of their school; they are made principals because they have wisdom. Wisdom shows you ways and purpose Prov 14:8... Until you know the way of a thing, you will be like a man beating about the bush. In the pursuit of wisdom, you must first of all sit down to establish purpose. When the purpose of a thing is established, then the way to go about it becomes successful. Prov 1:5…

(“The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city” Ecclesiastes 10:15KJV.) What you are doing becomes weary when you don’t know how to go about it. If other men succeeded, that means there is a way. If other men entered a venture and succeeded, it means that there is something they know you don’t know…. Read also Prov 1:2. When we talk about ways, it simply means equipping you with skills; acquiring the appropriate skills, knowing the right things to do. They are many of us whose problems are not meant to answer to prayers…your answer is not in prayer but in skills. Skills are not spiritual but physical. So, what make you to be the man ahead are not the many things but just one thing. Psalm 103:7…God made known His ways to Moses but His acts to the children of Israel. Wisdom is very cheap but the most scarcest commodity anywhere you find men. Men judge wisdom by numbers but wisdom is not known by numbers. Wisdom is hidden… There were 12 spies that went to Jericho and came back; 10 said they were not able but 2 said they are able. Wisdom is hidden; you will sit down to discover wisdom. The bible said that God hides himself in the dark…Psalm 18:11.
(“He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him [were] dark waters [and] thick clouds of the skies”. Psalm 18:11KJV). Why would God hide inside in the dark? It is because for any man to find wisdom, he must sit down to search. The ways of God does not make sense, there are only strategic.

Prov 25:2…God hides Himself in the dark because His glory is not meant for everyone to see. So the reason God would hide a matter is to make you search. Wisdom will tell you how to draw the line. Don’t let any man confuse you. Marriage is not done by revelation, so don’t allow any one tell you that God said you are his wife. Marriage is 70% physical and 30% spiritual.

Every believer is meant to be a pathfinder. So to be a pathfinder, you have to be:
1.Skillful thinking: WWWWH…who, where, when, why and the how. Until these five things are in place, you won’t become a skillful thinker and pathfinder.
There are things you give to prayer and there are things you give to thinking. If you give to prayer what you should give to thinking, then I am sorry because you are wasting your time. There are things that men discover and practice; don’t follow the crowd but follow the cloud.
No skillful thinker is a worrier; Matt 6:25….so you will be a fool if you go against this command. The things you are killing yourself about, God knows you need them. The second reason you mustn’t worry is because God is thinking about you. Expectation is a lower dimension of thinking. To expect is to hopefully engage in your mind.

Further study: Prov 1:4-5, 1Cor.1:27
