Wisdom Matters (Day 31)


I used to underestimate the value of wisdom. In fact, what I used to value more was gifting and strength. However, what life had taught me was that true strength lies in heavenly wisdom.  

Listen to today’s Truth…

Battle with wisdom, not your own strength.

Read the following Scripture…

Proverbs 21:22 says, “One who is wise can go up against the city of the mighty and pull down the stronghold in which they trust.”

Consider these thoughts…

The world teaches you to fight with money, power, and popularity. However, fleshly assets can only do so much to win your battles.
There was a time when my husband and I ran into some deep financial issues. There was a mix-up over some paperwork, which consequently led to a great debt. In that moment, we thought we had to ask God for more money or even a crazy miracle to get rid of the problem. However, I felt the unction for us to take an hour to separate ways and pray. During that hour, the Lord told me that this will not go away in just one moment, but He will guide my husband towards the right steps for us to get out of this situation victoriously. Funnily enough, in that hour, the Lord did just that for my husband. When we reconvened, and I told him what I heard, he said, “I know what to do next.” He acquired wisdom during his time of prayer. That wisdom led him to take the right steps at the right time, and we came out of the situation completely debt free!

Apply the truth! The following are optional things to do…

  • Ask God for wisdom over the areas in your life where you are stuck.
  • Spend extra time reading the Word today, to glean wisdom from the Lord.

Pray…

  • For the strength not to lean on your own understanding.
  • For an open heart and open mind to the Spirit.
