“Wisdom & Insight from another World”
“For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
We know from the bible that God speaks to those who pray. We also see in the Scriptures many instances where God has spoken to a group of people who were gathered together in prayer. In every case where God has spoken, He released wisdom, knowledge, or some insight that was previously hidden from those who were seeking Him.
Proverbs Chapter Two is quite clear that it is God’s desire for is people to know things. God will give gifts of knowledge, wisdom, and insight by the Holy Spirit, to those who pray. How often have you read these words in the bible “He that has an ear let him hear.” At least seven times in the Book of Revelation alone the Churches were told to “Hear what the Spirit is saying to the Churches.” Jesus in John Chapter Ten says “My sheep hear my voice.” So you can see that hearing from God is quite normal for the genuine Biblical believer.
The Church is as Jesus stated; the salt and light of the world. Salt preserves, and light shows the way in darkness. How important it is for the entire Church to hear God’s voice, and to be guided by what The Spirit is saying. The whole world depends on the wisdom of God that comes through the Church for its survival – whether it knows it or not.
In 1 Corinthians 2:12-13 Paul explains where the Church’s wisdom and knowledge comes from, when he said; ”12 What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13 This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.”
So, be much in prayer because God desires you to be among those who know the mysteries of the Kingdom. He wants you to receive revealed Wisdom and knowledge from His Holy Spirit. Your life, as well as the lives of those around you, will change dramatically by you following what the Spirit is saying to the Church.
Whatever The Spirit is saying to the Church, He is saying to you… Be Encouraged!
