Building in conflict: By Rev.. Obi Peters


Sunday 2nd Service:  | 16th June, 2019 | 8:30am

Text: Eccle 10:1-19
“Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: [so doth] a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom [and] honour”...( Ecclesiastes 10:1KJV)


Wisdom in the first place is a builder. By wisdom is a house built. If wisdom is a builder, you also need to understand that in the time of building there is conflict. Conflict comes to men who are building. A little foolishness can come as a result of a conflict. What destroys what a man builds, might not be big because the bible said that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump [1Cor. 5:6b]. The bible said to us that God has chosen the foolish things of this world to confound the wise.
Why would God allow conflict your way? God brings conflicts to a man because it is the true test of a man’s wisdom. There are things you never knew you can do until circumstances come your way. A builder needs to understand the processes of growth. There are many men who ought to be kings but today there are not where they should be. The bible said that the children of this world in their days are wiser than the children of light… why, because they don’t know how to use wisdom. Wisdom helps you to succeed; stop disturbing men with your prayer warrior life. There is a place for prayer and there is a place for work. If your axe head is dull, sharpen it. That is why you see servants are trekking, sinners are driving. God gave you brain so that you can give Him rest.

Money is a reward not a right. A reward for service rendered. No one has the right to own money. The value of conflict in the place of building is that you might have wounds but it will make you wiser and know more. Wisdom is acquired by learning from errors. Wise words bring approval, but fools are destroyed by their own words. Stop saying you are tired. Never get tired of anything, because tired men are seen in the mortuary. There is a difference between something that is big, what is big grows. What is swollen comes suddenly. Something that is big has life but something that is swollen smells. God does not intend for you to swell, He intends for you to grow. Things that grow suddenly will not last, there are empty. God commanded building to teach man growth. But when you are grown and get busted, you are no more. Adam was swollen but Jesus grew. When you begin to apportion blames to conflict you will never achieve anything in life. God wants you grow because as you are growing you have to learn the processes of healing and building. Wisdom requires that you don’t give up in what you are building because there is a process of injury and healing. When you go through certain pains, God allow you pass through them to teach you. The bible said that all things work together for the good of them that believe…[Romans 8:28.]
The pain you see as, why is God dealing with me this way, is for your own benefit….see [Isaiah 38:17NIV]
