He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.” John 3:31
Jesus is the wisdom from above, His words are from above, His deeds, and all the miracles and wonders are from above. Infact Jesus is called the power and the WISDOM OF GOD!(emphasis mine) “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” 1Cor.1:24
The wisdom of God is all you need to live a fulfilled life on earth and Jesus is our perfect example. This is why the Bible says we should look unto Him because He is the Author and Finisher of our faith. He is everything the believer needs and every question finds it answer in Him. “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
Christ is the complete wisdom of God in practical form; and all the treasures of wisdom are in Him. “In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”Colossians 2:3
HOW DO I ACCESS THE WISDOM OF GOD?
Your access to God’s wisdom is to look to Jesus because He is the perfect image of the Father according to God’s Word. “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature.” Colossians 1:15 Therefore, if you desire to live well and have life in abundance, you need the wisdom of God, which is from above! God Himself said, you should embrace wisdom with all you have because it is profitable to direct and it is the principal thing.
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7
“If the iron be blunt, and he do not whet the edge, then must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.” Ecclesiastes 10:10
No matter what is going on in your life today, the wisdom of God is able to make a way for you because it is from above. God’s word says when you contact the Wisdom from above, you shall walk in your ways safely, you will lie down and your sleep shall be sweet.
What more? You shall not stumble, your path shall not be hard, an ornament of grace she(wisdom) shall deliver to thy neck and a crown of glory upon thy head;
“For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.” Prov. 1:9
“She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.” Prov. 4:9
Get in line with this wisdom from above, and you can see that wisdom from above handles every area of life with ease. It is the one thing that controls all other things. Jesus promised us that: “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Luke 21:15
You cannot operate in His Wisdom and be under oppression! Just like light is far above darkness, so wisdom is far above folly. Wisdom from above is the good gift of the Father for us. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17
Finally, in all your getting get Wisdom. This month by the grace of God we shall be talking about Wisdom from above and all its treasures at Life Kingdom Church. You definitely will be blessed coming amongst us! Jesus is Lord!
God bless you
