Wisdom Is A Guiding Force by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Wisdom Is A Guiding Force by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Yet wisdom is vindicated (shown to be
true and divine) by all her children [by
their life, character, and deeds] (Luke
7:35 AMPC).

True wisdom is the manifestation or revelation
of the rightness of God in your spirit; it’s a
guiding force that causes you to act, respond
or speak beyond natural human reasoning. It’s also the
expression of the power of God in thoughts, plans,
purpose and decision-making. When the wisdom of
God functions in you, it becomes the power that
influences your choices in life. That’s why it’s a guiding
force.

Wisdom propels you in the right direction in life,
and positions you in the place of advantage. For
example, Genesis 39 tells the story of Joseph, who was
sold into slavery in Egypt by his brothers. Nevertheless,
the Bible says he found grace in the sight of Potiphar,
his master, and served him: “…and he made him
overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into
his hand” (Genesis 39:4).

In the course of time, Joseph was imprisoned
because his master’s wife accused him falsely. But
wisdom promoted Joseph, and gave him the advantage,
such that even while in prison, he became the head of
the prisoners. Joseph’s story is a very inspiring one.

Notice Pharaoh’s remarks to his servants as a
result of the wisdom he saw and heard in Joseph: “…Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom
the Spirit of God is? And Pharaoh said unto Joseph,
Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is
none so discreet and wise as thou art: Thou shalt be
over my house, and according unto thy word shall all
my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater
than thou…See, I have set thee over all the land of
Egypt” (Genesis 41:38-41).

The Egyptian Empire was preserved by the
wisdom of God revealed in the thirty-year-old Hebrew
prisoner, Joseph. Wisdom promoted him from being
a prisoner to become Prime Minister of the most
powerful empire overnight.

No wonder we’re admonished in the Word to
celebrate and exalt wisdom (Proverbs 4:8). When you
do, wisdom will promote you and propel you in the
path of honour and greatness.

CONFESSION
I speak wisdom, I walk in wisdom, and I manifest
wisdom, because Christ has been made unto me
wisdom. I have great amplitude of comprehension,
and deal wisely in all my affairs. I’m guided and
propelled by wisdom to think, talk and act right
always, in sync with God’s perfect will, in Jesus’
Name. Amen.
