KEYS TO POWER - DAY 18 DEVOTIONAL

 

TODAY’S TEXT: “And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;  3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD:  and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears’(Isaiah 11:2-3)

TODAY’S WORD: THE SUPPLY OF THE SPIRIT IMPARTS SUPERNATURAL WISDOM

Jesus speaking in Luke 21:15 said, ‘I will give you a mouth and wisdom which none of our adversaries will be able to gainsay or resist.’ And the first fulfilment of that we found in Acts 6:8-10.

"And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. Then there arose certain of the synagogue, which is called the synagogue of the Libertines, and Cyrenians, and Alexandrians, and of them of Cilicia and of Asia, disputing with Stephen. And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake’

The supernatural wisdom of God is the 'unresistable' wisdom of God! The world cannot resist its power and the solutions its proffers. They said to Jesus what wisdom is this (Mark 6:2).

‘And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue:  and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things?  And what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?’

It was different from anyone before it!

When Joseph solved the quagmire in the land of Egypt, it was this wisdom that was at work. And this wisdom is only accessible by the Spirit of God!

‘And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?  39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath showed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:  40 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’.

God’s revelation makes you wiser than your peers! What the Spirit reveals to your heart sets you apart from your others! It is wisdom that has its roots in the unsearchable wisdom of God. It was the same order of wisdom that was found in Daniel that makes him and his friends ten times better than their contemporaries.

‘As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom:  and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.   18 Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.   19 And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:  therefore stood they before the king.   20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding that the king inquired of them he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.   21 And Daniel continued even unto the first year of King Cyrus’ (Daniel 1:17-21)

There you have it again, the wisdom that the Spirit of God supplies makes you better than your peers. This is not wisdom which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Ghost teaches comparing spiritual things with spiritual. And even though this wisdom is spiritual in origin yet it has practical application in human realms of existence.  This is why one wise man said the Holy Spirit showed him the map of the second missionary journey of Paul and from that revelation he drew up innovative strategies to solve the problem a company was going through and at the end of the strategy meeting one of the boards of directors called him aside and asked, ‘What wisdom is this?’.

This is the realm of wisdom the Holy Spirit is bringing you to! Hallelujah!

We are in the days where the Spirit of God in our heart will be our competitive advantage on the earth! We will be ahead because we have been made the head and we have been made the head because the Holy Spirit is seated on our head!

From Isaiah 11:1-3 we see that the supply of the Spirit essentially imparts unto the saints wisdom, just like it did to Jesus. What was resting on the master separated him from the rest! He did not judge like others: after what only the eyes could see! No, he was above that: the new anointing gave him a new perspective on the issues of life! We are in the season of newness, Gods spirit will anoint you for new ideas and new approaches to old issues! For what rested upon Jesus will begin to rest upon us in a greater dimension from here!

As you pray today, the Spirit of God will bring you into uncommon wisdom and solution to that issue facing you and much more solutions to the problems of the world around you!

 

 

TODAY’S PRAYER: Lord by the supply of your Spirit fill my heart with your supernatural wisdom. By the counsel of your Spirit make me wise in the heart.

TODAY’S THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: God’s revelation makes you wiser than your peers! What the Spirit reveals to your heart sets you apart from your others! It is wisdom that has its roots in the unsearchable wisdom of God. It was the same order of wisdom that was found in Daniel that makes him and his friends ten times better than their contemporaries.
