For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding (Colossians 1:9).

Every Christian is expected to function in spiritual understanding and wisdom. This was the prayer of Apostle Paul to the brethren in the church of Colossae. In fact, spiritual understanding gives wisdom. A Christian who has spiritual understanding and knowledge does not work in ignorance because he knows what to do in every time, in every place and in every situation. Wisdom is the principal thing in life (Proverbs 4:7).

Joseph was a man that was full of spiritual understanding and wisdom. The Bible tells us that even when the brothers sold him as a slave into Egypt; he never walked in darkness and ignorance. He knew exactly what to do at the right time. In Egypt, he moved from slavery to a prisoner but yet full of spiritual understanding and wisdom. He knew the will of God for his life; he never succumbed to sin and worldly pleasure. Through divine wisdom and understanding, he became a pace-setter in the land of Egypt.

The Bible tells us in Psalm 111:10, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding has all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.” Daniel is another case study of a young man that had spiritual understanding and wisdom. The Bible says that because of his spiritual understanding and wisdom, he exceled far above his contemporaries, and the evil schemes and imaginations of his enemies could not prosper against him. Life becomes more meaningful through spiritual understanding and wisdom.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should desire sincerely for spiritual understanding and wisdom of God, which is the principal thing in life. Shalom!
