If the ruler of your city or the President of your country summoned all the wise people to show up for an important meeting, I am convinced that you will find, among these men, great thinkers, bright minds, philosophers and men or women of good political standing.
You might be someone who just wants to live a good life or a person who is deeply involved with Church activities; this message is relevant to you.
In the days of old, when kings embarked on major projects, they would consult the wise in the city. These wise men/women were not just people with bright ideas. They were people with skills. They were people who had achieved certain accolades in life. Wise men/women where artists designers, builders, singers, scientists, teachers, sportsmen, soldiers, doctors etc. These people would not qualify as wise men or women in today’s world but in the days of old, these were wise people.
Wise people are those with tried and tested results. They are those who have made their mark in society. I strongly believe that God has dealt with everyone with special abilities and competencies. The passion and drive to ignite these skills for your benefit come when you establish a strong relationship with God.
If you search your soul and look deep down inside you, there are skills that you possess that causes others to marvel at you. You might be a very good cook; use the wisdom of God to work on your cooking skills for your prosperity. You may have a passion for music or other art forms; it is time to apply the wisdom of God to fine-tune that skill. The things that you do naturally without spending too much effort could be an indication of where your blessing is. Here is what the Bible says.
Exodus 31:3 “and I have filled him with my power. I have given him understanding, skill, and ability for every kind of artistic work”.
True and perfect wisdom is identifying the gifts and talents that God has blessed you with and to use those gifts and talents to bless others around you. You might be a songwriter; it is time to unleash that gift and use it to become a blessing to your world. You may be a prayer man or woman and love praying for people; it is time to unleash your gift to the world. Never listen to those naysayers who always preach gloom and doom. I found out that those who have not achieve anything in life have a way of discouraging others that are trying to achieve something in their lives. Are you a Preacher? Are you a dancer? Are you a builder or a beauty specialist? Do not go to the grave with your gift. Announce your entry this year and do not care what others say. Putting your gift to work is honouring God and shows that you have received the wisdom of God (“chokmah” in Hebrew) which is the skilful abilities of God.
Father, I now fully understand your word. I make a conscious decision to put your wisdom to work this year. I have activated your “chokmah” in my life. From this day onward, I know that my life will never be the same because of your wisdom in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen
May you exercise divine wisdom today,
